Before I tell you about some new and exciting things happening here on Inspirational Beading, I want to extend a huge thank you to all of my readers. Your visits and comments make writing worthwhile, and I hope I can continue to bring you lots of inspiration and fun beading ideas for years to come!
I wanted to create a new avenue for sharing ideas and connecting with all of you, so Inspirational Beading now has it’s very own Facebook page! New posts will be shared as soon as they are live, along with posts from Embracing Color. I’ll also be sharing links and videos to fun beading and jewelry ideas, tutorials and information, plus color ideas and lots more. Readers are also welcome to share photos of their latest creations, or links to interesting bead finds!
I hope that the Inspirational Beading fan page will also be a place where beaders can ask questions about techniques and materials, which may allow us to start a Q&A segment here. If you have a question about anything bead or jewelry related, ask away! I’ll do my very best to create some detailed answers for you.
In an effort to keep new bead ideas and materials flowing on Inspirational Beading, I have decided to open up the blog to private sponsoring. If you have a blog or business related to jewelry, beads or crafts, you can now purchase ad space here on the blog. Unlike the current Project Wonderful spots you see here now, ads will be steadily visible to visitors from all over the world - there is no bidding or competition for space.
There are a maximum of six 125x125 ad spaces available, weekly or monthly. All you need to do is provide your button graphic and a link! If you think you would like to help sponsor Inspirational Beading, please visit the new Advertising page to learn more.
Have a fantastic, inspiring weekend!
