Are You A Crafter?

I’m wanting to start learning how to bead jewelry. Make things that make people smile. Right now, I’ve got no idea what to do, nor nothing to begin. I’m gonna try and convince Josh to go tomorrow with me to Michaels (I hate Sunday traffic, or traffic in general), and if says no, maybe I can convince my CFB (inside joke, don’t ask, but I’m her CFW, XD) to go with me. Michael’s is a good store for her to visit. She might need more wedding items, :lol:.
