Fabulous Selection of Beads At THE BOUNCING BEAD! La Mesa, CA
Fabulous Selection of Beads At
THE BOUNCING BEAD!
La Mesa, CA
Are you looking for a great selection of Seed beads and other bead shapes? I've installed a double wide display rack packed with beads at the Bouncing Bead in La Mesa. The Bouncing Bead, located at 8876 La Mesa Blvd., is a great bead store with lots of wonderful goodies. I am proud to announce that Laura, the owner, has agreed to carry my beads in her store. So many customers were asking for more seed beads and seed bead classes, that I've also agreed to teach some great beginner bead weaving classes at the store.
Check out the class schedule for my classes and the other fun classes taught by the talented teaching staff.
A Nice Variety of Colors and Shapes!
Bead sizes & shapes include 15/0, 11/0, 8/0 and 6/0 seeds. 4mm cubes, 11/0 triangles and tear drops. I am planning to add even more size 6/0 seed beads soon. Great for Crochet bead work. Along with the rest of the great
selection of jewelry making supplies and Laura's own selection of beads, you should be able to find everything you need!
Destination: La Mesa, CA
Three Amazing Stores in a Row!!!
The wonderful thing about the Bouncing Bead's new location is that right next door to Two Sisters & Ewe, A fabulous yarn and fiber shop. And next to that is a Fusion Glass, A beautiful store that offers Dichroic glass pieces, jewelry and glass fusing classes. This is a shopping day worth driving out to La Mesa for.
So grab your girlfriends who love to craft and go for a play date.

Three big trucks rolled onto my street and around to the house behind me yesterday. So unusual for our little cul de sac. What's going on? The neighbors have magnificent date palms in their yard and they were getting trimmed.
These trees are at least 80 to 100 ft. tall!
It required a cherry picker to get the workmen up that high. It was quite noisy, but really interesting to me. I had to get a few shots with my new camera. These trees have been part of the view out the back door for the 12 years I have lived here. I love seeing the fronds waving in the breeze. They look amazing now that all the dead branches are off. Apparently this tree had to go. Not a date palm. It was very close to my neighbor's wall. Maybe it was cracking the foundation. You can see the perspective with the rooftop and chimney and air vents in front of the worker cutting pieces of the tall palm bit by bit. Large bits!

Speaking of palm trees...Back to work for me. I am preparing to leave in the morning for Sarasota, Florida. I will be teaching for the Florida West Coast Bead Society Friday, Saturday & Sunday. What fun!!! Below is the information the bead society put into the Herald Tribune.
