This July will be 5 yrs. that we've been here in Naperville, IL. Last night, I came across a box of things I haven't seen in forever! When I was in my early 20s, I was into beading. I made the peyote stitch bags, a lampshade, rings, bracelets, you name it. I was into the beading craze! I found this purse that took me forever to make. I think I only used it a few times b/c I was afraid it would fall apart. It's been in storage for more than 10 years & is in perfect condition. I still love the blue & can't believe I made it!!
