There was time to bead, teach, blog, and play.
And all was right with the world.
Then the world started changing, the store didn't make it, the teaching opportunities became fewer,
but the artist kept beading, finding options for sharing her passion with the world in the form of art fairs and art galleries.
Shiawassee Art Center, Owosso, MI
The opportunities were few but mighty to start. She won contests, and ribbons, and accolades, oh my.
Still the world kept changing, and suddenly there were even fewer opportunities. She stayed true to her passion and she held on.
While all of this was happening, she started noticing that the blog-o-sphere was changing. There were video tutorials, pattern giveaways in the form of PDF, information sharing, and stories to be told on a regular if not daily basis. Bloggers needed content, and a way to steer people to them.
She realized that she'd missed that boat, and didn't know how to get on it.
So using the limited social media skills she has, she's relying on her Facebook pages - both personal and business - to keep in touch with those that are still in her bead filled world.
And with that dear followers, she bids this blog adieu. If you are interested in keeping up with beady comings and goings - this passionate artist is still participating in local (Mid-Michigan) art fairs, galleries, and occasional online contests. So be sure to follow the Facebook pages to get all the news - here are the links to BOTH:
