I am very pleased to share a "new" beader with you tonight. I was so impressed when I came across Mandy's blog, "Beads for Brains" recently.
First of all, the tag line of her blog reads,"365 days of a beginning beader's self-taught lessons".
Rather than explain to you what she is doing on her blog, here is Mandy's actual profile:
"I read about this great book called, "365: Make Something Everyday and Change Your Life!", by Noah Scalin and thought it was a fabulous idea. I really wanted to do this for several reasons, one is that I never stick to anything for very long, and two I wanted to increase my creativity, and three I wanted to do something to improve myself in some way. The book says to pick a theme, any theme, and do something creative with it every day for a year to see where you land. I've decided to teach myself bead weaving using books and the internet. I just started beading about 3 months ago when I took one class at a local bead shop (Thanks Kathy and Jo at Beadsoup in Savage, MD!), and I was hooked from the start.
Hopefully 365 days from now I will be at the least a capable beader, or at the most something better. :-)
Bead on! Mandy"
Bead on! Mandy"
I know you are all now appropriately impressed too!! That is such an exciting thing to do, I just love it and enjoy reading through Mandy's posts to see what she has learned!
Today is day 66 for Mandy so I have posted her latest project as well as her St. Patrick's day project!
Thanks so much Mandy for allowing me to share! :)
