As a self taught bead weaving artist, I find my gratification through little tiny beads. I love all the many techniques and stitches that allow my creative senses to flow. In the past year I accomplished a goal in having one of my designs published. In June 2010 I will have my 2nd publication. And I'm now in the process of trying for a third. I've been beading seriously for the past five years. With the responsibility of a big family, beading is my refuge, other than God of course. I have eight children and four Grandchildren. So needless to say I'm busy. I also have my Mom living with me. The days come and go, but I try not to let them go by with out making or working on something. I teach once a week at my local Hobby Lobby. And offer many other opportunities for others to learn and have fun in this amazing world of beading.
