AlphabeThursday - B is for blogging and beads

B is for Blogging and Beads.

My first post, A successful church craft fair
 I started my blog, Stroll Through Storyland, back in April 2008, after joining Etsy.  I thought, how will people ever know about my beaded jewelry if I don't market it.  So I started writing.  And I loved blogging, even more than making the jewelry!

B is also for Beads. Now I roll paper beads to sell.  But since I started my art journaling, I haven't had the time or inclination to make as many paper beads as I used to.   But that's OK with me.  I'm happy putting watercolor and pen to paper.  Who knows what I'll do next.


Come by ...off on my tangent...  and visit more bloggers writing about the Letter B.

Embracing creativity is a beautiful thing. Not many people allow themselves that. I think it's wonderful you're writing and making jewellery and art journaling...and whatever else takes your fancy! :-) All the best to you on your creative journey.

I've recently begun beading again, but I've never come across paper beads. They're gorgeous!

Found you via Alphabe-Thursday :)

I started blogging for the same reasons. I had no idea blogging would be so much fun!
I enjoy seeing your art journaling.

That's why I started blogging too but then my furbabies took that over! Glad you're having so much fun art journaling!

I remember that I wrapped paper around paperclips as a teen, and those were my "beads":)

Yes, it is amazing how blogging can take over other passions in life and become THE passion. Love your beads.

Blogging and Beads are both great B words :)

Very creative. I really like the colors. They are simple yet very catchy. I guess you shouldn't stop making designs because you sure have the talent for it.
