My Addiction

Some of you may already know and some of you may not know, but I have an addiction. I am not afraid to admit it. I LOVE beads. It seems that every time I go to a crafts store, even if it is just to browse, I end up buying beads.

I was recently referred to an online bead store. Not a good idea. I spent the last of my PayPal funds on beautiful and colorful glass beads as well as metal pendants. I am pretty sure that I will be buying more as soon as I get more dinero into my PayPal account.

I also attended a bead and jewelry show. I have never been to anything like this or even know this was going on. I only found out about it because of a TV commercial. It is The Bead Market. Click on the link for all the info about upcoming shows. Now because I had just received my online order of beads, and because I was out of money, I did go only to browse. I was in heaven! So many types, colors, and shapes of beads anybody could ever want. There were some beads that were pricey, but there were also a lot of bargains.

To tell you the truth, I almost did crack and buy some beads, but thanks to my friend, who went with me and saved me from spending my money, haha. Now that I know when the next show will be in town, I will make sure to save enough money to let me go a bit crazy at the show, haha.

Here is something that I made. It will be listed on Etsy soon. This is a hemp choker with a bear paw pendant. Great for all you bears out there or bear lovers. Rawr!!!


  1. Its okay Mike. Your addiction is fine with me. Lol, and your background changed. Who knew?

  2. Those craft stores get you every time in the pocket book don't they?

    Sometimes I think I stand in the fabric department and drool runs out of my mouth. hee hee

  3. Mike, I guess we both failed miserably at our craft diet. I just spent another $30 today on patterns and embroidery floss. Ack! I must stop doing that.

  4. I have the same issue - bead addiction! :-)
