Back By Popular Demand!

Two of my most popular beaded bead designs, Dolphino and Anemone, are back and available here, at Margie Deeb's website. 

I took a few years away from publishing and designing to concentrate solely on Mommyhood, but now I'm so thrilled to be back.  First there was that happy accident in April when I found out that 6 of my previously published designs were featured in "The Best of Creative Jewelry."  You can read more about that in this earlier post.  And it just keeps getting better!  Back in February I created some bracelet designs to be considered for the gallery of the Fall 2011 issue of Stringing.  I'm happy to report that one of those designs was selected.

So here I am, slowly making my way back into Beadlandia, belly dancing and practicing yoga along the way.  Yup!  I'm still keeping up with my 365 Days of Dance and my recent re-commitment to a daily yoga practice.  

As an aside, I thought about calling this post "Snot Monsters & Bead Patterns," but decided that might be a bit too gross.  But it does give you an idea of how my week started.  The Snot Monster decided to pay us a visit on Sunday and hopefully he'll be leaving soon.  I'm exhausted, but exhilarated.


  1. Love the picture of your beads, will have to check it out! What day are you on in your 365 A Day project? I'm on day 136 and still going!

    Will be back to visit your blog, thanks!

  2. Thanks, Mandy. It's good to hear from you.

    I started in mid-December of last year so I'm on day 165 of my 365 Days of Dance.

    Congratulations on your 365 Days of Beading!

    A few of my friends are doing the dance challenge, and another friend is doing the photo a day challenge, but you are the first person I've heard of that is doing a bead challenge. Way cool!
