Hi there! If you are a long time reader of the Art Bead Scene, you might remember me: Melanie Brooks of Earthenwood Studio. I helped start the blog way back in the first posts and wrote here for quite some time. My business and life took off in various directions, so I had to take a break for a while, but I am back now to present you with the Sunday posts! Editor Cindy Gimbrone has decided to hand over the Sundays with Cindy posts over to me. I would like to thank her for posting such great links for us every weekend and I hope I will be able to a good job filling her beady shoes!
