Hi, I am a 54 year old grandma who loves to bead, crochet, macramé, clay, resin, chain maille, Viking knitting, etc. you know the list goes on. I found Lima Beads by accident and am still working my way around the site. The cat in my profile picture is Odin He is a white medium hair flame tipped Siamese and boy does he have a voice. I would love to get to a point where I can set up a site to sell some of my things, but all in good time. I am in a wheel chair right now and going thru physical therapy so my beading is also therapeutic.
I have viewed so many very pretty POD’s and very interesting and creative names to go with them, I just know this is one of those places I belong. (I hope)

    You may post any jewelry you have made. If you look through the jewelry you will notice not all of the products used come from here.

    Am I allowed to post a few of the pieces I made before I found Lima Beads or do I have to wait until I finish something with their stuf…which is ok I am just excited. And I will tell you what I have my crossword puzzle filled out and so far haven’t gotten one wrong but do you think I can unscramble the letters in the red circles……they have me running in circles…. :)

    Yes I do love my animals I believe in rescuing them so God brings us together. My Dog lived 13 years they said he would only live 6 because of his size and breed, we fooled them. He is missed. They are cremated and in my room where they can be near me. Now there is Odin and my friend Maggie just rescued George He is a little dog blind in one eye and adorable. And crafts yepper would love to start a site to sell some of my things on the next thing I need to do is share some pictures with you all. I live in Florida now but I still love todays POD :)
