Ok... so I am a little new to this whole blogging stuff! I'm actually not really sure what I am supposed to do on here... SSSSOOOOOOOOO... guess i will just introduce myself and then see what comes later!
My name is Amanda, I am a SAHM to 3 beautiful little girls, Lily, Izzy (Isabel... wanted a Belle, get an Izzy), and Chloe (ages 4,3 and 20mos). AND you can't forget the husband Allen. We have been married for a little over 4 years.
I guess you could say I have been beading forever (according to my parents)... but I would say that i have been really beading for 5 years, after my first stretch of being in the NICU with my oldest daughter Lily. Needed something to pass the time, and slowly it progressed from there. Seems like with each baby I had the more intricate my work got. So 4 pregnancies later, I am teaching myself different beadweaving techniques. It is by far my favorite part of beading!!!
I don't have as much time as I would like to bead, but I am slowly getting back to having more. I am so excited to see what kind of things I produce next. I am always looking for new techniques to try, and have so many stuck in my head right now, just waiting for that moment for me to sit down in front of my beads and get to work!
