A Bargain at Any Price


Head on over to Jen’s blog, The Cheeky Kea, to find a good short read.  She tells us why buying handmade jewelry (handmade anything, really) is such a great bargain!

It’s a good thing we all love what we do, because very few of us are going to become millionaires from it.  I’m happy if I can just keep buying more supplies.

Speaking of supplies on hand, since I’m sharing links today, Operation Tackle That Bead Stash is a great blog that does exactly what it says.  Sarah helps you to use up the supplies you already have before you go out and buy more. (well, except for those times when you really can’t hold yourself back, haha)  And even gives you a chance to earn prizes while using up your stash!  Plus there’s great eye candy from some very talented beaders.  If you haven’t visited yet, you should check it out.

I've seen that blog,even observed it,but have decided against.In my case,designing my jewels by myself,I practically do not need any help,any tutorials,or any motivation of this kind,as I have lots of fabulous books written by professionalists - the best inspiration for beading.Maybe it is helpful,but reading post by post seemed to me simply boring.generally,I can say,I do not like all those blogs about beading-without beading.I saw lots of them on Blogger,in which people write about beading tones of articles,giving even the hints and tutus how to make something,but they do not show even one thing made by them.They are simply not credible in my opinion.
