On a Blue Note Glass Beads 8.21.16

 It is with a heavy heart I must share our final post. I have started a new job teaching school and I am simply overwhelmed with my duties and working more hours than I did in the film industry! There is no time to breathe, much less make beads or attempt to sell them. It may never be revived again...or it may become a summer project. At this point I just don't know.

I wanted to take a moment to thank the artisans to found us early and stuck by the idea of promoting others work for the years this blog was active. Some of you have shared every single day while others have been more silent publicly but giving me constant support and advice. Each of you is deeply appreciated!

  7. Holly - I haven't been around since the first year or so - as you know, there is just so much you can do before something has to go. Good luck with teaching - I have a feeling you will be great at it and also that you will find it immensely rewarding. Take care of yourself. Hugs. Liz

  8. I'm sorry to see it end too, but totally understandable. I wish you luck!
