Hi everyone! I wanted to introduce myself to you. My name is Meg and I am going to be your friendly and sometimes funny blogger on the Eureka Crystal Beads Blog. Eureka Crystal Beads, graciously handed over the torch to the blog to me. Me!!! I still can’t wrap my head around it. I mean come on, it’s not every day that a company that you love wants you to help write their blog. Obviously,they think I know what I am talking about. And, I stress “think I know”. I just really hope I can live up to it.
And by the way, check their website and you’ll know right away what I mean. It is all about quality, friendly service and love of beads and beading!
Now, I don’t want to bore you with a long list of everything that I have done that makes me an appropriate choice to give you bead advice and information. I mean who wants to listen to that. I certainly don’t. Boooooring!!! So, I am going to give you a very small look into my world. Here it goes…
I jumped with both feet into the beading world over 10 years ago. It definitely wasn’t one foot in to test the water. I don’t know about you but, when I like something I tend to learn everything I can about it. And, beading wasn’t any different. I started to bead to keep myself busy. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2002. Beading helped change my life. Gave me a purpose. I started doing my own designs and started teaching after meeting a friend who owned her own store. This same friend introduced me to others in the industry and that is how I met Bonita and Walter and the rest of Eureka’s team. And,as you know, I am now writing a blog.
In ending my first post, I just wanted to give you some insight on where the blog is going to go. We are going to be doing free projects (see the most recent Dragon’s Back Bracelet), tips and techniques on beading, fashion and color advice that relates to beading, and anything else that you as readers would like to know. Please let us know if you have any ideas on posts for the blog. Go to our Facebook page(Eureka Crystal Beads) and leave a post. I really would love all the help that I can get! Until next time….have a bead filled day!
