Link Library with Melanie

  A couple of Novembers ago, Heather shared some ideas for a holiday craft booth set up, showing some ideas that she and her husband used to create a warm and friendly holiday themed display.  I thought this might serve as some good last minute inspiration for some of us who are working on our holiday shows this season.

That is one of the great links from the Art Bead Scene archives, now check out these new links of some of our beady friends:
