    #13 should be my mantra! My husband is always asking me why there are beads being delivered everyday and I don’t seem to be making anything. I’m not sure I’m addicted to the beads or to the colors, but I think I need help! Does anyone else have this problem?

      Phew.!! and I thought I was the only ONE!! I cannot resist the colors and the design ideas that come up in my head when I see them–especially if they are “on sale”. I should probably have my head examined. But I am passionate about colors and designing and making necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. I have enough stock right now to open my own store. So do not feel alone..I’ll bet there are untold thousands of us out there :)

    I laughed so hard the tears ran down my legs. Seriously, my daughters and daughter-in-law have instructions that if I die before my husband, they are to find and re-hide ALL my beads before my husband has a heart attack. Keep up the great work! ;)
