What do you make?

It amazes me, sometimes, where our beads and parts go and what they end up doing. We ship boxes to Finland, Russia and Kuwait and we see that folks make our goodies into rugs, home accessories and even, now, model trains.

These photos are from Noel Crawford, a garden-railroad enthusiast who turns some of our tiny parts and do-dads into parts of trains. The cars he makes have amazing details and he works hard to make them very accurate. Look closely at the car at the top of this post and you'll see our bobbin beads stacked up. Pretty neat, huh?

So, what do you make with the goodies we send you or the tiny parts you pick up in our stores? Send me pictures, I'd love to know!
