I’m a 60(crap)year old single/divorced woman living in a town full of 20-25 year old single marines. So-o-o no social life at all. I am a full-time sales merchandising rep for a major company. I work in a different town/store every day.

I discovered Lima Beads in October 2012 through a link on Pinterest. Best discovery ever.

Just wanted to add. The kitten I use as my photo is my baby Mousey that I raised with a bottle the summer of 2012. He’s a big boy now but he was so so tiny with those huge eyes. He loves beads too haha. He’s my baby in every way.

    That puppy earned his bacon for sure.
    This is really pretty.

    On the left side of this page is a menu. Find where it says My Designs. It should take you to a page of your designs. Under the main photo should be an option to Delete This Design.

    Pretty necklace. I like the Green Girl Dragonfly piece with the Czech Dragonfly beads

  • Deb Harding commented on the Design “Fox fun”   3 years ago

    That fox is cute!! The chain is perfect.

  • Deb Harding commented on the Design “Glam Jam”   3 years ago

    So pretty and just the right touch of sparkle. And this sounds like an awesome idea. I am just appalled at the money I hear kids are spending on the prom.

    Deb, I don’t think the reorganizing ever stops! We’re going thru everything we own & purging the excess–we’ve be at it for a while now. As far as buying of the beads….well, does that ever stop?! I just found some great boxes at a yard sale for all my porcelains….always on the hunt for a more effective storage system. Take care Deb–can’t wait to see some more of your creations. I just love your style & creative ingenuity; you’ve been a great inspiration to me over the years. Crystal

    Hey you! Thanks for the wire post! It reminded me to change my number of grandkids to 3. :) I just reread your profile, too. You updated that, too, didn’t you? This place IS the best and all of you I have met here are my bestest buds! Hang in there, sister. I am sure you will find your place to shine.

    Jump rings, crimps, beading wire and tiny beads are the bane of my existence. Big stuff on string from now on! JK.

    I’m pretty happy today. Everyone loved the jewelry I gave them for Christmas. My Mom was especially pleased. Kept saying the set was beautiful and that she had never seen anything like it.

    Had serious Lima Beads withdrawal all dayl yesterday since I could not get on anything but the home page.

    Feel dumb because I didn’t realize my Santa Belt was POD Christmas Eve. Oh well.

    Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
