I am happy and sappy so I am going to let you know: My heart is always in Michigan with family. Rosanne had a birthday party for me over Labor Day. Thank you Rosanne!
I was so thankful not to share turning a year older with a hurricane!
Rosanne made home-made Margarita Pizzas with fresh basil, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Yumm!
There was cake and ice cream
The best birthday party ever surrounded by my Son and Daughters.
And sister Susie.
Plus all of my grandchildren
And my sweet Momma too!
My Birthday was a day
I will always Treasure.

They are like super hero's with names like Super Duo's, Bead Studs, Spikes, Rizo's, Pyramids, Peanuts, Long Drops, Long Magatamas, Bricks and 2-Hole Lentils. They have inspired designer to create new and exciting patterns. The shapes of these beads add a new diminsion to flat bead work.
I have been most inspired by the new Miyuki long drops. I love the matte and permanent galvanized colors. I am looking forward to using these in a bead crocheted rope.
Now you need a great design to create something with your new shapes of beads. Let me introduce you to Linda Roberts of BeadsforEver. I love her clever use of Rizos and SuperDuos in these Tri-Dangle earrings. You can purchase the tutorial here. Stop by BeadsforEver on Etsy and to see more of Linda's designs.
