Hello! I'm so happy you're here!

As you might have already guessed, my life revolves primarily around two things: beads and books. Every day I'm writing, editing, reading, and/or designing jewelry. Occasionally I even remember to eat lunch.

In 2016 I'm reading 50 children's books that won the Newbery Award and creating a small (credit card size) work of art inspired by the book. You can follow along each week [on my blog] and chime in with your own comments on the books or share your own artwork. I'd love to have you drop by!
