  12. I was lucky this month to have my letter printed in this months MJ mag. I sent in a tip about how I sell some of my beady goods by photographing all my work and put them in albums and my daughters and their friends take them into their work and get orders for me, so I though I would have a challenge where all you beady fans pass on a tip or a new technique and that way we all can get to learn something new. please show(photos) or describe a favourite or new technique or a handy tip to help all us budding beaders. I will have 3 beady prizes and pick the ones that I can use or teaches me something new. hope you like this challenge goodluck and hope we all learn something new. Isabelle x
