Hello! Welcome to Bead Yarn & Spatula. I have always enjoyed creating things. When I was a kid I used to bake yummy treats using a Now You’re Cooking playset. Did I just date myself? For those who don’t know it’s an 80’s toy! I’ve upgraded since then and I am now using real baking tools. When I was unemployed a few years ago I used my downtime to learn cake decorating, crocheting/knitting and jewelry making. After a few years I decided to start blogging about the things I was creating… hence Bead Yarn & Spatula. These days I am working full-time again so I don’t have as much time to make things. I do make it a point to try a new baking recipe at least once a week. And there is usually some yarn project sitting on my knitting needles and/or crochet hooks at any given time. As for the jewelry making, I have beads grouped together for pieces I want to make. It’s nice to have these hobbies at the ready for any downtime so I never feel bored. Everything you see on here I have photographed and written (and have actually done). I hope you enjoy what you see and read. Feel free to post any questions, comments and/or suggestions you may have!
