I have been beading for the last 5 years. I have really focused on it for the last year, with the help of a wonderful local bead shop, Moonstone Beads. I am having a blast learning new stitches, meeting people in the beading world, and finding new websites and blogs to explore. I am also a homeschool mom of 3 wonderful children and director of a local homeschool co-op. My wonderful husband of 20 years is very patient when he comes home to me concentrating on a new project rather than supper! I hope to get to the Tucson BeadFest next year with a group of fellow beaders!
