Greetings Beading Friends!

The days are noticeably longer and it is wonderful to see some beautiful sunsets hovering on the horizon at the end of the day. There are some great colour inspirations for our jewellery and other creative initiatives!

January is “inventory and getting re-organized” month for us. Now that inventory is finished, we are looking forward to new orders arriving and some exciting workshops. Shows begin again the first weekend in March. These add a different dynamic to the days and it is rewarding to see the reactions to new products and different experiences.

If you feel you are in a winter creative slump, take some advice from Walt Disney: “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing”. We have seen many versions of this idea and have tried it ourselves. Surprisingly, “begin doing” actually works. Let us know if you have any ideas about surmounting a creative slump and we will share it with our beaders.

Wishing you a Fabulous February. Keep warm and safe and happy and above all enjoy your creativity!



Meredith, Brent and Carrie
