It’s hard to believe that it was 12 years ago today that The Whimsical Bead was officially ‘born’! Whilst our products and workshops have changed our philosophy and our vision have not. I started The Whimsical Bead all those years ago during a particularly challenging period in my life as a way to de-stress, cope with what was going on in my life and also to bring in the supplies for my new-found ‘therapy’ I couldn’t get in my little town (or anywhere close!).
It wasn’t long after that, I realised if I was feeling this way then there were bound to be others in the same situation and from that moment until now, our Whimsical Tribe/Community has grown considerably.
For my The Whimsical Bead has never just been a ‘business’ - it’s been all about the people and the connections we’ve made. I am so proud to have met so many amazing people on this journey and to have brought many of them together. There have been some lifelong friendships formed and bonds created that will never be broken.
I thank each and every one of you who has supported The Whimsical Bead and myself over the years. Whether you have purchased online, visited the studio, taught a workshop, taken a class, read one of my newsletters or magazine articles, attended an open day, visited a show or send us supportive words through email/social media etc.....Without you we couldn’t continue doing what we do here so thank you so very much.
As always I’m looking to the future and we have exciting things planned for the remainder of the year and also the new year so I hope you’ll continue to follow us on our journey.
Love Dani xx
