Thankful for Beads… and You!
It’s no secret that gratitude is good for you. Appreciation and thankfulness are smart practices year-round, but this time of year brings a special opportunity to express it out loud. At Beading Daily we decided to express our gratitude visually, because we’re so appreciative of our beads and beading friends. Maybe you’d like to share this meme with your beading friends this week, too?
