Friday Feature-Do You YouTube?

Hi all!
Hope your 2013 is going along swimmingly! Since I live on the coast of SC, I have enjoyed quite a mild winter, for which I'm very thankful. Especially when I see all those snowy pics ya'll have been posting.
I do love snow, but not all the yucky stuff that goes along with it.
I actually had a different post in mind for today, but yesterday I spent most of the day enjoying some wonderful beading videos on YouTube.
Now, I know lots of you create your own patterns, so that got me to thinking....Do you YouTube?
I've found so many helpful tuturials, and I'm slowly learning how to work my way around it.
I know, everyone uses it, but learning how to use it well.....that's a different story.
I now have subscriptions with some great YouTubers....Posters....Resources...??? What the heck do you call them?  Anyway, I wanted to see some ideas on beaded rings, cause I've joined my OTTBS group challenge to create one a week...I know, probably not gonna happen, but at least I'll have more than I have now, and I'll have tried some great patterns.
I also wanted to see if there was anything for twin beads.
I had a lot of fun, and definitely got off track several times, but that's nothing new with me...:)
Here's the links for the ones I visited yesterday, just in case you were curious. Oh, and I did make the heart, and of course I messed up, but I still like mine. I really loved hearing her beautiful accent and voice.

Hope you have fun watching them, and have a blessed weekend! Shirley


  1. Hi Shirley,
    Thanks for sharing the tutorials. I will check them out. I love the heart it has character no mistakes!

  2. I love this, it's soooo cute. Will definitely have to give it a whirl. Your's projects are really stunning Shirley, I don't know how you do it with your schedule! What's next of the bread list? I bought all the supplies to make bread a month ago but I have no idea what to do with them! I think yeast scares me.


I'm thrilled you stopped by! Thanks for your words of wisdom.
