About

I am a wife, mother of two and a grandmother to 5 beautiful grandchildren. I enjoyed crafting. My favorite is upcycling. Giving new life to unwanted items is exciting. A couple of years ago I started sealing images from old magazines, books, scrapbook paper, etc. onto beads. This has been alot of fun. I have made hundreds of beads and sold many from my Etsy shop and also in a bead store in my area. Let your imagination run wild as to the different ways to use the beads in your jewelry or crafting projects. My daughter and I have also started collecting BUTTONS! We have had soooooo much fun searching for them. Each button has its own unique material, design and a history. Some are so beautiful that I have a tough time parting with them. I have used them in hair accessories, jewelry, craft projects, home décor, etc. You can purchase some of my beads and buttons from my Etsy shop. New listings weekly…
