I don't have a lot of new stuff to share lately. I have been working hard on production for orders and Bead & Button. I have been fun taking pictures documenting my process using Instagram on my iPad/iPod and posting every day or so to my Facebook page. It's fun, and sort of like mini-blogging. It's hard to get a whole blog post up when I am not working on anything super new and exciting, but that keeps me social enough. Please feel free to friend me on Facebook to keep up with me!
Check out what some of my beady friends are up to this week:
