I Started beading about 6 years ago, to help me stop drinking. That worked, haven't had a drink in over 5 years. Now I am beading to stop/control my eating. When you are string beads you can't eat. Do have a problem with getting enought water down. I sell some of my jewelry, but mostly give it as presents. My daughter opened a Dress shop in New York last year. I sent her some of my creations. They sold very well. I am retired, so beading is a hobby, not a business. I have 3 cats, so it was necessary to get a rolltop desk. I can keep my beads in plastic boxes in the drawers and use the desk as a work top. When I leave to do something else, I just close the rolltop and the kitties can not play with the beads.
Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my 2016 weight goals of 50 pounds.
Hello All, I've been a jewelry maker for about the past 10 years. I love making my custom jewelry. This year I have had more vendor shows then I ever had in the past. I'm 51 years old and have 30lbs that I'd like to lose. I had lost 50 and gained back 30 after my back surgery a few years ago. Of course I'd like to blame it on the surgery but that wouldn't be honest.... the reason I gained back the weight was totally due to life style choices. The main one not getting enough exercise. SO, I'm going to get back on track and lose this weight. I need to for a lot of reasons..... that's why I'm here!
