Lots of action on my Facebook account as we start to slide into the 20th year since I finished high school. Wow, what a difference 20 years makes! Just amazing. I am really enjoying Facebook, because there are some old high school friends that I've really enjoyed catching up with. So, friends and acquaintances are posting old photographs (I really need a scanner, considering all my photos then were taken before digital), and everyone jumps on the bandwagon to make comments. It's fun to read and ponder. In one of those comments sections I saw an interesting tidbit about an old junior high and high school classmate of mine. I didn't know her really well, but we'd end up in the same circles occasionally. Someone mentioned she had a bead shop in Wisconsin somewhere, so I thought I would look it up.
Meant to Bead is the name of the shop. If the shop itself is as snazzy as the web site, it looks like loads of fun. I'm not necessarily an avid beader, or even a beader to begin with, but the projects on her website are so gorgeous, I wish I was an avid beader and could start making such lovely things. I especially like the earrings featured on her site. So, I think, good for her and how fantastic for her! I hope her shop does fine in these tough economic times, because I am sure it started as a hobby for her and grew into a business. Nothing like doing something you love. You can tell from the customer comments that she takes pride in what she does. If you like to bead, she has an on-line store as well, and appears to have a gorgeous selection of beads. I hope you enjoy looking as much as I did. I don't know if she'd remember me.
