Friday Communique

Every time I see Madison and Emma they ask, "When can we come to your house and make bracelets?" The girls were in Scottsdale with me last week, and we needed to kill some time between party prep and the actual party, so we played with some foam and plastic beads found at the dollar store.

The girls took to stringing right away, coming up with patterns and mixing the two types of beads. We were in serious need of some Bead Stoppers. If only Auntie Jamie had been prepared. No worries though. The girls finished their stretchy necklaces and proudly wore them as they partied the night away. Hooray for new beaders!

Please check out what some of my other favorite beaders were up to this week:

Sara Hardin (AKA SoftFlexGirl) reviewed the book 1000 Glass Beads!

Kristen Fagan headed out into the bitter cold to enjoy the Chihuly: The Nature of Glass exhibit at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden. It was well worth the shivering!

Have a lovely weekend! xoxo
