Loving Our New Beads

When my friend, Tracey, told me that she wanted to have a workshop using our new beads, I was a little nervous. I've made things with our microbeads, but the colored beads were a new item that I hadn't played with.

Now that I've worked with them, I can say that I am hooked! I enjoyed working with them so much, that I ordered all the other colors on my next order. The sticky strip is strong enough to hold the micro and the larger beads, and the new Mono adhesive we sell is what I used to make the bead centers for the flower punches. My favorite new technique might be using staples with beads threaded on them. Once I played with them, it really was alot easier to do than I would have imagined.

Everyone should have received an email about the February technique class being postponed. March 25th we will have our next technique class, and we will focus on the ways to use glitter, and we will be working with our mini and micro beads as well. The price will be the usual $5 but everyone will receive two technique tags, and we'll basically have two classes for the price of one! Hope to see you all there!
