Of Roses and Daffodils

Today I am featuring ARoseByName.

What she has to say about herself:
I am a self-employed wife and mother of two teenage daughters. I enjoy beading and find that it is my therapy for stress!

My daughters and I first tried beading many years ago. Over the years, the beads have gotten smaller and the designs more intricate. Although my girls no longer bead, they enjoy wearing the pieces that I have created.

"Break Forth"

Isn't that an amazing name for this piece???
My featured artist today is

What she has to say about herself:
My name is Cheryl, and I love the outdoors! I also love playing with my beads and seeing what I can come up with to make.

I can't remember how old I was when I first did any crafts, but I know it was pretty young. I went to a vocational high school and took 4 years of Clothing Shop there. I have always done a bit of different crafting hobbies, but found beads in a serious way about 5 years ago. My daughter was given a bead kit for recuperating after surgery, but wasn't very interested in it. I took it over and took off with my beading. I've had to put them on the back burner at times, when homeschooling and work got in the way. Now I am dedicating more time to be able to learn and grow in this art form. Yes, it IS an art form.

God's creation is one of my favorite themes for my work, and I think everyone would have to agree how wonderful nature is.

The stunning piece above is her entry in the Etsy Bead Weavers Monthly challenge "Spring Break."

Hungry For Spring???

Today I am featuring cigarboxbeads
( )

What she has to say about herself:
I'm a retired Home Ec teacher, loved what I did, love what I'm doing now.

Beadweaving is my joy, along with knitting, crocheting, sewing AND being with our twin grand daughters. Not at the same time though, they love to 'help'! We do have 'crafting time' every day that I watch them, so I hope I'm instilling the love of creating in them.

PS- I just opened another etsy shop---suchandsort-go there to read where THAT name came from!

The piece above, beautifully named Cottage Garden Bracelet, is her entry in the Etsy Bead Weavers Monthly Challenge ("Spring Break").

Basic Elegance

Love vintage??

Then come and check out Morelle's shop!

What she has to say about herself:
I'm a 26 year old girl living in Amsterdam. I have a passion for creating and designing things with fabrics, wool and whatever I can get my hands on. I believe that you don't need to buy expensive accessories to decorate your life. With cheap and everyday materials and with a little imagination anyone can create beautiful things!
