Peace, Love & Bead Bloggers!

I spent quite a bit of time this weekend catching up with some great bead bloggers and continue to be amazed by all of the positive energy and fabulous designs!! It makes me so happy to be a part of it!

I sincerely appreciate you stopping by to share your thoughts and design ideas, it is what brings me back here every day to share the cool beads that I come across in my little part of the world.

I found a package of 3 ring forms at Michael's yesterday and used one of the flat ones in yesterday's project.

I hadn't seen these before and had heard through one of the bloggers below that the bead section in her Michael's store had been expanded and I wanted to check it out.

Aren't these cute?! :)

Speaking of bead bloggers, here's what some of them have been up to over the last week or so. Have a great week!!
