Happy Spring to all our Beading Friends

It is a beautiful sunny day here in the nation’s capital and it certainly feels like spring even though we still have a lot of snow. Each of us hope you are sensing the arrival of spring wherever you live! It is invigorating!

Given the number of spring jewellery, art and craft shows that are planned, this comment by Franklin D. Roosevelt seemed motivational: “Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.”  We love it when people show us what they have created whether we are seeing the actual finished piece or photos. Even more rewarding is the thrill they express at achieving something they thought was beyond their skill level. Some say that every time you create something you learn something that will contribute to the success of your next endeavour. We just have to remember to schedule our own creative time so that the learning process continues! And do remember, if you have a question, we are here to help.

One thing that we appreciate about spring is that we are on the road with shows and that means we get to see people we would only speak with or exchange emails with during the rest of the year! There is nothing like face-to-face conversations. We always learn something and get new ideas. This month we are looking forward to the shows in the Brantford area and Montreal!


We hope April is a happy month for you! All the best!
