Packing Up My Beads to Move..

Writing a blog post during a tropical storm seems as good a time as any.. It’s also a great day for packing up all my seed beads! Later this week, I’m moving from Quincy back to the city of Boston.

Packing Moving Beads Relocating Etsy Quincy Boston MA The Lone Beader

For the past 6 years I have been living in a tiny one-room studio apartment. I desperately need a bigger work space to create my beaded paintings, as well as more wall space to hang them! So, I found a new place in Brighton, MA – I’ll be moving there at the end of the week! I have decided to keep my Etsy shop open while moving, but I have temporarily deactivated all made-to-order items until sometime in September when my new beading work space is all set up.. Please check my Facebook page for any news updates during the transition. Thanks for your patience, and I appreciate your interest in my beadwork! 😀
