Dotsie, that's great! Hobbies like that are terrific for kids, because in addition to learning a new skill, they get a sense of accomplishment by creating lovely gifts for friends and loved ones. My sister's daughter is also into beadwork, and I send periodic care packages of beads I think she'll like. Brittany started writing poetry this year (she's 10!) and my sister feels it's some genetic thing that passed her (sister) by and went to straight to Brittany.

If your daughter has any general questions on beading, or needs to find supplies, have her email me! [Smile] Is there a good bead store in your neighborhood?
