Here's hoping everyone enjoyed the moon tonight!
Full Worm Moon – March As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins
. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter
; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.

Justice For Somer Thompson

I guess because I am a mother of two great kids, I pay special attention to the horrific crimes against children these days. Nothing can undo what happened to Somer Thompson, but maybe now her family can begin to have closure and Justice can be served. May her family heal and may she Rest In Peace.

Free Hugs Bead Giveaway

My daughter showed me this great video on You Tube. It was her idea for me to do a bead giveaway. So, I am doing a bead project dedicated to the promotion of free hugs. I should have the bead work ready in a few weeks. I will post a video and give more details later. For now, please enjoy this video. I hope it makes you smile.

How To Bead Around A Cabochon Even Count Tubular Peyote Stitch by Beth Murr

This video is long overdue. After my first cabochon video reached 10,000 hits I promised to make a new one. I have been very busy, but it is finally here. I hope you enjoy it. The contrast between the black background and the blue Sea Sediment cabochon in this video showed up great. Thank You to everyone around the world who views my channel, rates my videos and leaves the gracious comments. You make all the effort of making these free how to bead videos worth it. Now, learn how to bead and then teach someone how to bead. You will be glad you did. I know I am.

How To Make A Stretchy Bracelet Ocean Jasper

This video shows you how to use stretchy stringing material to make a stretchy bracelet. One of the best tools you can invest in is a pair of hemostats. Clip a pair of hemostats on one end of your string material to prevent beads or gemstones from falling off. I never use glue on my stretchy material. Glue can weaken the material. Just tie several knots. I usually tie 7. Seven is one of my lucky numbers! Ocean Jasper is a beautiful mineral. It comes in so many different colors and patterns. I hope you enjoy the video.
