I am putting a plea out there to Artists to sign up to be an Artist on Call. It will help you with your skills. And help you to think outside the box in how to make some of these beads. It is well worth it. Plus the kids love them so much. Done be afraid to select beads that scare you. I recently went down the list of beads and made all the outstanding ones even though I felt they might be above my skill level. I gave them a shot anyway. You know what I found out... that they weren't... some of them I had to simplify a but they are still what the child asked for.

So what do you say????? Come on and give it a shot! I know you won't regret it!!!

Right now there are only 2 beads waiting, both have words on them.
Many times I make & then reserve if I'm unsure of my skill, these will be that way for me,
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.

If someone else makes them in the meantime, I'm sure that some other child will like them too.

Oops! I just went to check and those last 2 beads have been reserved too, so none right now. Of course you could always use the ideas to make a bead then send it with your regular courage bead donation.

I think I'm signed up for this, but where do you see the list for the dream beads? For some reason I was thinking it was emailed to those that had signed up.

I get an email reminding me to go check the list once in a while now.

I'm sure that someone will be checking in here soon & can get you signed up.

Where on the site does the dream beads list usually hang out? I thought I had searched every nook and cranny of the BOC site and I've never seen it. And what does "reserve" a bead mean? Does that mean you are planning to try it and to show others that they might want to try another bead?

I signed up back in Feb when this was first put up. I thought I would get an email or something but I have gotten nothing. I really want to do this too but have no clue how.

The list isn't on the BOC site anymore. It is on a site that lets you "claim" it, and you can see which beads are still "available" and which are claimed.
I'm going to PM Robert to please come give more info, because I don't know if Ashley is on LE.

I just want to also thank the volunteers who do so much to keep the program going, making or sorting beads, or organizing and other work.
Having worked at a non-profit for 14 years, I know that the volunteers are what make many of the programs possible.

I couldn't agree more! I wish there was something close to me so I could help out, I would love to volunteer for BOC!

I know, I did offer once to help with paperwork if it was logistically sound, but it would probably be as much work for someone there to send it to me as to do it themselves.

I've been signed up as well (for a while) but I've never received any type of notification.

I'll check with Ashely, but you can log in at any time to see what beads are needed.

Here is the new link to signup from Ashley. I recently went down the list and completed all the outstanding beads some had been sitting open for months. So they are up to date as of today.

Are you signed up? I posted the link to sign up to be an Artist on Call. Once you are signed up Ashley will email when they get a new list of Dream Beads. The dream beads themselves are listed on a website called Sign Up Genius.

Ashley will email everyone with the link and password that have signed up as an Artist On Call.

For those that are not receiving the emails... have you changed your email address at all since you signed up?

Both are done Eileen. I went through and got them up to date so there is nothing outstanding on the list anymore

Neena the list isn't on the BOC website. Ashley sends out an email and we sign up to do the bead on a website called Sign Up Genius. Once we sign up for a particular bead you make it and send it to Ashley and she then sends it on to the child that requested the bead.
