Default Dipwads Making Beads for Beads of Courage

Our local beady group (we are the Dipwads) gets together once a month, and twice a year we rent the West Michigan Glass Art Center so we can all torch all together.

This year, we made beads for Beads of Courage all day (well, til about 3:30 when the kilns were too full

That is wonderful! Looks like a lot of fun, plus so many beads for the kids, win-win!

I wish there was a group here to do that with, and a place to do it all together. I went out & tried to make some tonight to add to what I have, but I'm so sloooow I didn't get many made. Every bead counts though I guess.

Ok, nearly all of the beads are clean. I have 6 plant stakes I refuse to give up on. They will ship this weekend.
