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!

    DJ, I luv 2 bead too! What a great necklace! I love how you did the focal with the chain-work, and then knotted the rest with the turquoise C-lon. The touch of color the cording adds between the beads picks up the Aqua Terra nicely. Your friend will be ecstatic over this set.

    The new Impression Jasper focals are lovely indeed. I like the rich colors you choose to support them. These would make some ‘wow’ necklaces!

    Hi CC it’s so good to hear from you. I tried sending you a message last night but I guess that didn’t go through. We’ve missed your positive presence in the Design Gallery. I sure hope you find the precious time to bead and post again. Hearing from you made my day.

    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.
