See look! Here I am making beads with her, and not being murdered.... even though we met on the internet!
While I was making beads all day long I
Isn't it funny the way we read people's blogs and they start to become "famous" in our heads? So silly! But when I saw her scraps of clay, it was like- "OOh! Famous clay scraps from the Clay Rosary Girl! I have seen these on her blog!" hehe! I instantly recognized the scraps from her Sacred Heart Bead:
Sarah was so sweet, and we made some cool beads together! Our kids are close in age, and played really well! Here's Sarah hard at work!
Aren't these rose beads we made together really cool?
Since making more beads (it's kind of addictive) I have such a bigger appreciation for what Sarah does! The beads are a lot harder to make than it looks, and really time consuming! Here are some "Catholic Icing" beads I made after she left:
Even after you make the beads, they still have to be rolled out really small, and then sliced. Even poking holes in all of them seems to take an eternity! I haven't even strung any of them yet- who knows how long that will take. You can read about Sarah's beads on her blog, and you can buy her rosaries on her website. They're breathtaking!
I heart creative Catholic stuff! (But you guys already knew that, right?)
In conclusion, Sarah is awesome. And internet friends rock. And everyone you meet online isn't going to be a murderer. I'm so glad she came out to pass on her trade of bead making to me! If you'd like to hear what Sarah had to say about coming here and meeting me, you can find her post here. :-)
