I guess this is a good time to tell you all who I am. My name is Mary Rabakon and I am the mother of two children (2 legged) and two others (4 legged). I love my family and am especially attached to my dachsunds Ellie and Maggie. They are my comfort. I have moved from craft to craft my entire life and about a year ago I discovered beading. I did not understand what I was looking for or why I was looking until I started beadweaving. Beadweaving gives me the outlet that I need to remove myself from the rat race that is life. Professionally I am the controller and treasurer of a manufacturing company, so you can probably understand my desire to remove myself from that role and escape into another. Beadweaving gives me that escape.
I am really new to my craft, so I am exploring many different styles and avenues of marketing. I am currently selling on ETSY https://marytdesigns.etsy.com/ . Stop by and take a look. I also am a member of the Etsy Beadweaving Team (http://etsy-beadweavers.blogspot.com/). The team is currently in the midst of its monthly challenge and your vote for your favorite piece would be terrific. The collage above depicts the entries for the challenge. I can't decide which I like the best. I select one, then another jumps out at me. What to do?? Anyway, the voting begins on October 9 and ends October 15. It woud be great if you would browse the pieces on our blog at the aforementioned site and place your vote in the appropriate time period. Our talented members have created these pieces for your pleasure and would appreciate your vote of approval. In all cases, you will not be disappointed!!
