Bead My Valentine

Instead of cards (that too often get tossed in the "circular file") I made beaded Valentine's Day gifts last year.


Even though they are inexpensive and very simple, my family and friends loved them. They can be easily hung as a sun catcher from a window frame with a paper clip, attached to a mirror, used as a keychain, or simply hung on the wall.

I learned while volunteering with a native American organization to make gifts like this only when I am in a good mood and have positive feelings. These positive vibes will then be transferred on to the recipient of my gift.

These are pretty. I'm not convinced about the vibes though passing to the other person. Since it is just a piece of plastic or glass, I'm not sure how that is possible. I do agree, though with the person who posted that when in a bad mood, I'm not usually too creative. :)

These are pretty and so creative! They look easy to do as well. They are different from anything else I've ever seen. You could probably sell them! Thanks for sharing them with us.: )
