I was looking around for a beading group that didn't intimidate the heck out of me and found this one :) I am glad to meet other beginner beaders and am looking forward to exchanging ideas and advice!
1. How did you get involved with beading?
I took a non-credit class last year at a local community college. I had never even heard of beading before, but it looked like a lot of fun. I liked the first class so much I have taken several more.
2. What inspires you? art, music, nature, etc...
I love certain color combinations, especially anything with deep blue. My birthstone (garnet). Gold. And things that are sparkly.
3. What are some things you like about making crafts?
Since I have two small kids, beading and scrapbooking time generally tends to be the only time I get to have fun by myself. It also seems to be the best way for me to express any artistic talent I might have, since I cannot paint or draw to save my life.
4. How much time do you spend on beading?
Not much recently, but I was crazy busy around Christmas. Everyone seemed to like the gifts I made! I want to make more time for it soon.
5. What are some of your favorite craft stores?
Michael's, Craftmania, and Fire Mountain Gems. I'm going to check out AC Moore this week.
