My name is Betsy and I am a 27 year old full time momma to a little boy, who was born May 2012. I have a wonderful husband who supports my beading addiction. I love beadweaving.
I started beading a little over two years ago (2011) and bought bagfuls of beads from walmart. It was an instant addiction. I took a step away from it when my son was born but now that he’s gotten a little older, I’ve gotten back into it. I have even introduced my sister to the wonderful world of jewelry making. I started beadweaving in march of 2013 and was instantly hooked!
I have been crazy this year with an active little boy on my heels, but I try to bead as much as possible, since it keeps me sane
I plan to do some festivals in the coming years. I live in the beautiful Catskill Mountains, about 25 minutes from Saugerties which is home to the infamous Garlic Festival. I’m also reasonably close to Woodstock.
