Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!

Personal

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! Now I’m a certified beading ‘addict’ and you can’t imagine the supplies I now have! Hubby jokes about “the house foundation cracking because of the weight of all those stones!” I love to bead and especially love working with gemstones and deco Czech glass. I also enjoy creating a variety of styles and designs.

I am so happy to have found Lima Beads and all their great products, and all of you wonderful beaders out there! Thanks for all the inspiration you have given me!

    Janet, I am speechless…and grateful that everyone was safe thru this horrific ordeal. Yes, may we always thank & praise our Creator for the help he gives us to get through our calamities (and even just everyday life!)

    MH & Kathryn R, Thanks for the posts!

    Kathryn, What a beautiful necklace! I love the golden pearls–perfect for the bee-theme. Thanks for taking time to post it for me to see. I feel inspired to go look thru my pearls…just wish I had some more time. No time for beading (or much anything else–house renovations & [...]

    What a super necklace! That was a fantastic pick, and it is nice to see a piece made from it. So cool how it fell together–isn’t it great when that happens?! The flow of color from bottom to top has my eyes all over it. Great work!

    Hi Crystal! My car was an Altima, 2013 I think. I had an Altima before that & I guarantee I’ll be getting another! I still want to test drive in case they changed something. They have a great ride & the seat fits me—very comfy. I get the big engine cuz I like to zip! Should have been a race car driver…Thank you for your thoughts. I do find that I’m a bit more sensitive than usual. And I’m a little nervous driving an unfamiliar car in Houston traffic. It happens to be a Nissan Rogue. Drives nice but I’m just not an SUV chick! Anyway, so nice to hear from you❤️

    WOW! It’s been a long time! I’m greatly missing my time here at Lima visiting with everyone (not to mention beading & creating) and wish life would ’put on the brakes’! Missing you all! :)

    Crystal, your bracelet is the perfect piece to help you heal! Just your eyes toward the sky. When my brother died, my mom was having a very hard time. On the way home she begged God to show her if my bro was with him. There had been a big storm in the Brownsville that day, but God sent a double rainbow for her. I am doing better about my fur baby, but was having a rough day missing her Friday. I went to dinner with a friend. On the way home there was a perfectly complete rainbow. That told me she was with God and doing well. :-D It brought a smile through watery tearfilled eyes.

    Thank you for your message! I still sense her presence at times and getting fewer each day. I picked up her ashes on Monday after dropping off some medicine Mom needed. They are still in the cardboard box. I got sick the day after I put her down. I went to the doc yesterday. I think I waited too long. I got a big shot of prednisone and take huge doses for the next 10 days. Hopefully the allergy and sinus infection will clear up soon. I have seen mom since the 5th.
