Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Knowing how valuable your time is, I cherish the moments you spend here. It is my greatest wish that my words and handwork enters your precious world to bless you and bring you joy.
About the banner photo: The bead box belonged to my grandmother. She loved making miniatures and used the beads in her work. I value her box of beads highly. From time to time the banner will change but it will always be a tribute to my dear grandmother.
The bead box in your banner photo is just beautiful, coming to this blog is like entering a magical place! :)
