March is National Craft Month
Welcome to the March edition of the Bead At Home Monthly...We're always glad when you come by to visit.
March has officially arrived and as we begin to say goodbye to winter and dream of warm spring days ahead we can easily see March as a transitional month...transitioning out of winter into spring.
There will still be some winter-y days for some while others begin enjoying warmer days. Before long the colors will begin to bloom.
I took the liberty of capturing some of Pantone's top ten 2016 spring color palette to incorporate into the newsletter. It was so much fun last month we decided to do it again, featuring the 'springy' colors from the collection.
It's been splashed every where. We'll talk about them at the end.
Are you aware that March is National Craft Month? What a perfect month for this to take place and celebrate all things crafty.
So exactly what is National Craft Month and how did it get it's start?
Crafting is a great past time hobby for those days when winter still sneaks in to let us know that Old Man Winter isn't quite done.
Crafting and beading can be enjoyed both indoors and out of doors as well. It's a great diversion to keep you busy when you've become tired of feeling cooped up. Or it can also be a great incentive to take a project outside in the sunshine allowing the daffodils to inspire you as they showcase their brilliant buttercup yellows.
Let's do some extra crafting and beading this month shall we? We have lots of reasons to. March 2016 brings three outstanding events...
- St. Patrick's Day
What's on your calendar? Will you schedule some extra beading time for those events?
To commemorate 'National Craft Month' we have some things planned for you.
The Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) will be featuring '31 Days of Crafting' spotlighting CHA members throughout the month.
Plus, Bead At Home Weekly will be providing a weekly mail out on Wednesdays throughout March as well. Our theme...'Crafting'.
We'll be looking forward to spending time with you this month as we continue to share our favorite topic, beading, and other favorite hobby interest. Register now so you don't miss a single week.
Hope to see you there.
Now let's get on with more bead talk for for today. Enjoy...
