Summer Savings Week 3: All Findings, Stringing & Wire are on sale!
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


Native Wisconsinite, now living in OK. I love the longer summer type weather but hate the ice storms and not too crazy about being in tornado alley either. No basements here!! My husband and I have been married for 34 yrs and are parents of 2 adult sons that we just love & love to hang out with. Neither are seriously involved at this time so only a grandpug owned by our oldest son, Nick. Our youngest is Joey. Did photography in my home based studio for over 20+ years but sadly got burned out doing weddings. They are very stressful & I am a perfectionist :>) I now work for a staffing agency and with the economy in the shape it is in, that also can be stressful! Enter beading: started about 6 yrs ago and started with ankle bracelets but now really enjoy earrings and bracelets b/c you can accomplish those in such a short period of time! I do occasionally make some necklaces. Love Lima Beads & so appreciate you can buy half strands if you want. Tickled to be part of the LB Garden and enjoy meeting and talking with all you lovely & talented beaders! You are all a blast!

    Hi to all my lovely Chickie Friends. Hope you are all well. Boy picking has become a lot more challenging since I hadn’t been on lately. LOTS more choices but it also really makes you hunt and peck (that is what chicks do I think) Big hugs and hope to get to know some of the folks that have joined in the last few months–I hope I don’t have to say years–hope I haven’t been gone that long! Goodnight!

    Thanks Deb and Lori! Life has been crazy hectic! My mom has liver cancer and work has just been very busy and I don’t get home from work a lot of nights until late and then fall into bed quite exhausted. I have missed so many of you dear Chickies and want you to know how much I appreciate you all. I haven’t been doing any beading and the necklace I posted was the first I did anything in a very long time. I feel so bad as I still haven’t gotten our dear Cotapaxi Chickie Sue the photos I took earlier this summer. Chickie Cha Cha is a bad chickie! Hope to see you all again very soon. Big hugs to my friends!
