Sundays with Cindy, now with Melanie

 Hi there!  If you are a long time reader of the Art Bead Scene, you might remember me: Melanie Brooks of Earthenwood Studio.  I helped start the blog way back in the first posts and wrote here for quite some time.  My business and life took off in various directions, so I had to take a break for a while, but I am back now to present you with the Sunday posts!  Editor Cindy Gimbrone has decided to hand over the Sundays with Cindy posts over to me.  I would like to thank her for posting such great links for us every weekend and I hope I will be able to a good job filling her beady shoes!

Next week I will start posting with a new title and I hope to bring some additional fun content to your Sunday posts.  I am looking forward to being a part of the Art Bead Scene team again!  And now here are this week’s beady links: A Bead A Day

    Now that you're back, may I put in a request for Ms. Bead It All to make an occasional appearance? I miss her… Nice to see you back on ABS!
