I'd definately be interested! It makes sense to have each mama send out a single bead to each of the other mamas....and how about a little note or something along with the bead. Such as an affirmation or well wishes or whatever. But yes, I'm definately on board.
Bethany, mama to M (9), J (7), S (4), and baby BOY 9/13/10!!
Sounds good to me! you'll probably want to edit your original post and put dates to know in there. Go ahead and set the dates. We'll follow. Great job leading, BTW!
Oh, I realize I didn't respond to the how many beads to send part. I think I'd probably be maxed out at about 5. Just the addressing and stamping after picking out the perfect bead for the person. But, if that's just me, then heck, I'll go with the flow and do whatever.
I'm interested. If I understand correctly someone will post specifics on how to make it?? (for us non-crafty folks!) also can someone explain what type of beads?? I mean I know there are a million different kinds and we want to get something special for each different person we send to but is there any kind to avoid getting? We have a bead store here in town and they have so many I would be confused without guidelines!
I dont know much about beads either! LOL I was just going to pick out ones that looked special for each person. If there is a type to avoid please tell me! LOL They sell clasps in packages of 2 at the bead/craft stores too so I was just planning on putting mine on a string of some sort (hemp or fish wire or whatever) and then adding clasps (they tie on).
I'm in! I think I could just do 5 beads though, that's assuming we're sending them to different people, right? If we're sending all 5 beads to the same person, then I could do 10 beads. But 5's my limit in terms of addressing envelopes to different people, etc.
I'm just getting into the swing of this but am enjoying it immensly. I did this at a Blessing Way I hosted it and it was the best!! If there's room, I'd like to participate. Beads could represent the senders empowering birth stories vs. being specific to each mama we're getting to know. Just a thought. Thanks
Okay! Bumping this! Sorry, I had relatives from out of town staying with us the past 8 days so we were running around all over and sharing the computer, LOL. Anyways! There are 14 of us so far. One more person want to join? LOL Then we could do a 5 bead one and a 10 bead one for the ones that want to do 5 and the ones that want to do 10.
Everyone that wants to participate PM me your addy and I will make a list that I can forward on to those participating.
