Greetings Beading Friends,

Even with the threat of snow on April Fool’s Day, we are anticipating the arrival of spring and better weather for outdoor activities. For many people, the natural colours of spring give impetus to creative endeavours. We can’t wait to see one friend’s garden. She embodies this statement about creative souls: “Being creative is not a hobby, it is a way of life!”. Thus we thought this statement by Leo Burnett was appropriate for this time of year: “Curiosity about life in all its aspects is still the secret of great creative people”. Now that it is becoming easier to be outside, we can appreciate the natural world in all its glory and be inspired! 

What are you doing to be creative? Even though there still limited reasons to get dressed up when one is working at home and staying at home instead of socializing, some people find it boosts their morale and mental outlook to get up in the morning and wear some jewellery….earrings, a bracelet and/or a necklace.  Some people get satisfaction from making little art pieces on some foundation which can be incorporated into special gift cards or put in a frame. Others are learning how to integrate different techniques and trying out new colour combinations. If you have done something that you are pleased with and don’t mind sharing it, we would be pleased to post it on our Facebook page. It always gives people great pleasure to see what others are doing!

So beading friends, we will close with our sincerest wishes for health and happiness combined with our sincerest gratitude for your continued support and encouragement! We know we are blessed!


Meredith, Brent and Carrie
