My Fan Club...

I had a meeting of my fan club Sunday night. The kids didn't have school on Monday, and for whatever reason (just because we allow it??) a bunch of kids showed up at my house. My daughter Sarah isn't terrible interested it my beads, but her friends are. Some of the girls wanted to see my beads, and I ended up bring down my wonky bowls for them to paw through. I have tons of wonkys. Well, not exactly wonkys in the mishappen way, but tons of experiments and practice beads, and beads that that when finished weren't what I really wanted. I told the girls to take what they wanted and showed them how to make a simple pendant with beads and colored artistic wire. Once I convinced them that it was really OK for them take them, that I was happy to give them way, they were like kids in a candy store, filling little baggies with my beady babies. It's kind of fun to see what the kids like, it nice that they don't see the flaws I see, and since they didn't make them they don't know that the design didn't turn out quite the way I wanted it to. I have to admit I like the teenage squeals of delight and thank you hugs!
