Beads and Babies


Mama Susu and Sawyer

The only thing more wonderful than getting to play  with amazing beads, is getting to play with beads and my new grandbaby!  There are alot of perks in being the owner of Auntie’s Beads, and at the top of my list is lovin’ on sweet Sawyer three days a week at the office.  Sawyer was born February 11th to my son and his wife, Kelly, who is a long-time employee of Auntie’s Beads.   My heart melts everytime that front door swings open, the bell dings, and there is Kelly, diaper bag on one arm, and beautiful Sawyer in the other.  Sawyer is gifted with an amazing smile and a wonderful disposition, allowing me to swoon over him as I work on the computer.  We talk about beads, what to order, the newest trend, you know, that sort of thing.  Of course, all in baby-lingo, which lends itself to lots of comments from our staff.  Oh, and I can’t forget the singing.  Sawyer seems to love music, as do I, and does not seem to mind at all that I can’t carry a tune in a bucket!   So, sometimes we will belt out some “Cheer Up Sleepy Jean”, other times it is simply “Patty Cake”.   Whatever the day brings when Sawyer is at the office, please know that those are the days with the most love in the room!
