I hope you have all had a great weekend! I've been catching up with lots of bead bloggers and, as usual, am so impressed by everyone's creativity and drive!! You have to believe people are following their passion if they are somehow finding time to not only squeeze in beading, but blogging as well!!
If you have a few minutes saved up, I hope you will join me in taking a quick trip through these sites below. I'm always anxious to take a look at what this group has been up to because it never fails to inspire me!
