New Year Fun & Bead Blogger Friends

Wow, the new YEAR is right around the corner! 2013 seems a little more futuristic than 2012 did for some reason.

Each new year passing probably impacts each person a little differently depending on what is going on in their lives or world at that moment.

Regardless of whether things are "good" or "bad" or "otherwise" one thing rings true, the beat goes on and the BEAD goes on, THANK GOODNESS!

There will be new beads and beading products coming our way this year and that is exciting! Yay, beads!

Here are some fun acrylic beads from Cousin Corporation that would be great in any season, but I'm thinking of the ball dropping!

I also wanted to share a few updates from our bead blogger friends. Stay tuned for more New Year's fun tomorrow!
