This business venture has really come in to focus for me because I have a new found goal. I have been a stay at home mom for the past 4 1/2 years. I'm raising two gorgeous little girls that keep me busy. Beading started as a stress reliever and a creative outlet. I do realize that one day all to soon I will have to return to work. Oh, but what to do? After years of contemplation I've chosen yoga instruction. I was inspired but a friend who just got her yoga certification. Well that sounds just great and I know it would be a perfect fit for me. I love the idea of working part-time so I can still be at home some of the time for my kids,. But also how great would it to get paid for working out and meditating? Seriously, this is a no brainer. I have a background in dance as well as karate instruction but it's been years and I'm not as bendy as I use to be. So the catch is yoga certification actually costs money. I know, maybe I'll actually sell some stuff and make the money. Novel idea, right? So here I go! I'm about to launch the official grand opening of Little Wave Designs.

I've been beading now for several years and am finally feeling like I'm making some things I would love to sell. My confidence is growing and I am beginning to really think about selling my work. Lately I've been working on learning some wire wrapping techniques since I am still a novice. I find myself completely consumed by the task and the time fly's by at at alarming rate. The laundry isn't getting done, the dishes are stacking up and my house...well it needs a good cleaning. I know I should get to it, but really... I'd rather be beading. Here are some things I've been working on.
