Beading Divas to the Rescue goes dark during July but we are still working behind the scenes. Lizzie puts charming paw charms on bracelets and preps for sale plus sorts beads and manages the inventory; Cynthia and Loren photograph bracelets for Etsy; Cynthia and Karyn upload bracelets to Etsy; Mary Jo wraps and labels the bracelets for shipping and sorts beads, cuts wire. Lizzie and Mary Jo love to sort beads and should be members of BSA (Bead Sorting Anonymous); Karyn not so much. There is plenty to keep us busy. Gail is truly on vacation with her family.
While we do a lot as volunteer board members – our circle of bracelet makers grow. Individuals and a gaggle of women make bracelets for us with mostly their own bead stash; otherwise we could not keep up with the supply and demand.
Thank you to:
Noni who has been making bracelets from almost the beginning of our cause. There must be hundreds of bracelets tagged with “Noni.”
Line dancers Naomi, Kris, Debbie K. and Janet
Green Valley Joan has been here since the beginning and still occasionally shows up with a stunning batch of bracelets.
Sandra & friends create dazzling bracelets locally.
Sandra’s sisters & friends in L.A. make beautiful bracelets.
Chris W. and friends made 60 bracelets for her 60th birthday.
Debbie F. in New York surprised us with her rendition of bracelets which is a nice addition to ours.
Plus: Alta, Monica, Ellen and the annual rendezvous with the Desert Crones.
