Have fun Jenibelle! I picked some up too earlier this year and have made dozens. Some will go into my craft booth and some will be gifts as well. It is so much fun creating whatever I want. I wish I would have started doing it alot sooner when I wore jewellry! It would have saved me a ton of money. :)

OH! I can't wait for pictures. I went thru a phase, bought alot of beads... and yeah, they're in a nice, plastic storage bin on the shelf in my closet. Hmm, might need to take those out after the craft sale.

Can we have a craft night at your house? Or I can host... (yup, I'm teasing, I'm in Arizona! )

Is this an expensive craft to get started in? I have always been interested, but figured it would cost alot to get going.....

It can be, depending on what types of beads & findings you want to purchase. I have noticed that I bought some items that I don't think I will ever use because I thought they were basic supplies that I would use with every piece...wrong!

So my new process in which I purchase items involves sketching out my rough design for each piece and only buying new items if I will make multiple pieces out of them. That way I only purchase exactly what i need at the craft/bead store. Although sometimes it is fun to just buy a bunch of random stuff and see where your creative juices take you!

Also remember that Green is in right now, so there are all sorts of ways to create from things you may already own!
