I have been asked a lot lately about doing tutorial / classes on-line.  It really is something I want to try so I thought I’d do a mini preview!!  Starting today I will be posting 5 steps to creating one of my beadwoven framed creations each day.  The following day I will then post the lessons here on the blog.  At the end I will make them all into a video and hopefully get started (one the side) working on a full video tutorial!!  Teaching is my second favorite thing to do….beading is first!!  So go over and check out the lessons, or wait until tomorrow to see the first 5 listed here!! Here is what I will be working on!!

    I second Virginia’s comment. You have led such an interesting life. I think the discipline and your attentive personality serves you well in creating as it did in the Navy! I am mesmerized at how quickly and accurately you complete pieces like your bookmarks and wall art!
