I live in the Southwest with my hubby, dog, and birds. My first exposure to beading was almost 30 years ago when I purchased some thread and acrylic beads. Life got way too busy and the beads went into storage. Through a friend, my love for beading was renewed and out came all the supplies!

The Picture Jasper has me seeing this little guy scurrying and playing in & out of the bushes & trees. And to top it off, [...]
