If all goes to plan, you’ll be seeing a few changes and new developments on the blog in the coming months. There has been lots of talk behind the scenes: new features, schemes and plans. The team are keen to get more involved with the monthly challenges.

Hopefully, in time, we bead makers will do more to work with the challenge images in our own work. Until then, here’s a selection that picks a little something from each of the team member’s shops, all suited to use for this month’s challenge.
