Beading – Making a Memory

Beading a Gift, a Memory, a Moment in Time

As a family we often try to give experiences as gifts instead of just presents.. We put together outings to do with the recipient at a later date. There have been the movie and sleepover- with ice cream gifts, rock climbing, painting pottery, amongst others, but a personal favorite is the beading…  Beadwork’s is a favorite spot for me and my children, many an afternoon has been spent with our little box collecting treasures to create our own little masterpieces.  There are the personal pieces, ones we make for others but even better is when we have brought friends, there is something about friendship bracletts that is timeless!!  Then we also find the time life markers, when we add the dolphin that reminded us of a trip or a favorite animal… Even better is we end up with an activity, a memory, an item to wear, and something that takes up very little space when you are not using it!!!

Life lesson: Our favorite pastimes are better when shared with friends!!
