I live outside DC with my husband, 16 year old daughter and 11 year old son. Have been married for 20 years and love every minute of it. I am originally from Colorado and miss the snow terribly!
I got into beading a few years ago through my sister and have loved every minute of it. It began when I saw pieces that were $$$ and decided that I could make them. I pretty much string but am getting into wire work also. (Our LBS just opened a glass studio and that is VERY intriguing.........)
My daughter loves to sit and offer advise to me. She is generally my "go to" person when I get stuck or need some design/color advise. My family is very supportive of my endeavor and are encouraging me to start a business. I have done a few "Trunk Shows" at my house that have been very successful. My only obstacle is time, I need more of it.
