Poster Sketch: CafeMoms

Ask any beader what he or she loves about the craft, and they will most likely tell you that it is a relaxing - even Zen-like - experience. Beading and creating jewelry is a meditative art that allows us to escape into a world of pretty, shiny things. Busy moms are often the most appreciative of beading time, and most of us would rather play with beads than read a book or indulge in a bubble bath. As an added bonus, we can use our hobby to earn a few extra dollars for all the things we need for our little ones.

There are a great many Street Teams on Etsy that are dedicated to busy moms who make and sell just about anything you can imagine. This week’s Poster Sketch features some of the wonderful jewelry designs of the CafeMoms Team. You can see more of this team’s creations by searching “CafeMom Team” on
