CharmedBaublesNBeads : June 4                   Meet Diana!  :)

CharmedBaublesNBeadsFor years my passion was sewing. When I had to give it up, I never dreamed I would find that same deep satisfaction in beading.

A little over a year ago I bought a necklace at a department store. I really liked the beads, but something didn’t seem quite right. Then, when it proved almost impossible to do the clasp, I decided to take the plunge. I cut the beading string and there I was with all these loose beads!

Well, that one necklace became a dozen. I still haven’t used all those beads, but I now have so many more pretty, interesting beads! And it’s a real addiction. There is always a new bead I just must have.
I can’t say there’s any one material I like best. My favorite is usually whatever I’m working with at the moment. I do really enjoy combining materials in a project, bone, wood, glass, etc. I love playing with the shapes, colors, textures…

LayoutsFromTheHeart : June 25                  Meet Jessica!  :<)

Hi! I'm Jessica and my husband and I have lived in this area for about 6 years now. I am originally from northern Wisconsin, and think that it is the most beautiful place in the world. I am a stay-at-home mom of 3 young boys, who love to scrapbook too. It's so fun to watch them create their own pages and cards with so much artistry! Then I get to add their pages to my scrapbooks too! Another memory to record :)

I love to craft all kinds of different things, and scrapbooking is my passion. I love to make pages that will help hold our memories fresh in our hearts for years to come. I am also trying my hand at other papercrafts, so you may see a handmade card or tags, or other types of crafty goodness in the shop! I used to make custom pretty garters for special occasions (seriously I loved that!), quilts (love putting together the tops, not so much the "quilting process"…

My name is Natalie. I am a French-Canadian gal, but I live in South Korea. My passion is called "Hanji" : sumptuous Korean paper made of mulberry pulp. Hanji has been used for a thousand years in Korea to create decorative or ceremonial objects. For me, it is essential to offer useful and practical objects, that can enjoyed on a daily basis. Tissue cases, pen holders, jewelry, fridge magnets, hair accessories: let the beauty and unique character of Hanji paper make our everyday life objects irresistible!
