Beadies for Easter

It's almost Easter. What a wonderful time of year.
If you're looking for a fun craft for the kids to do over Easter weekend, here are some ideas:


 I have several patterns for "bunnies" on my beadiecritters website. Here is one of them.

One of my website visitors made bunnies from this pattern in several different colors. So cute!

An Easter basket pattern, complete with chocolate bunny!



A whole set of Easter items, including 3 eggs, a bunny, and a basket.



This chick pattern comes from makingfriends.com.


This lamb pattern is so cute! Also from Making Friends.


If you are entertaining younger children who may not be able to do these crafts, put out a bowl of pastel-colored pony beads and let them string them on plastic lacing. (Not recommended for children under 3 unless closely supervised.)

I've Been Designing

I have been busy designing new beadies today.

I had a request for "Walking Dead" beadies.


And I'd been itching to do some of the Frozen characters.


Patterns for these are coming very soon! I might just keep on designing, while I'm on a roll.

New Video! How to Make a Beadie Gecko


Today I made a video tutorial for making a beadie gecko. This is a great project for beginners, and I hope that a video will help explain the process if anyone is struggling. I'm hoping to make more videos, showing other techniques.

Sorry for the Site Problems

I'd like to apologize for the beadiecritters.com website being down. It's a domain name registration problem. I have attempted to contact my site sponsor to get that taken care of (it's in his name, so I can't even pay it if I wanted to). I'll continue trying to reach him and hopefully the site will be up soon.

I'm currently recovering from my son's wedding and getting ready to go on a vacation. After I return from my trip, I'll figure out something to do with the site if the domain name problem hasn't been taken care of. I also plan to begin posting patterns on the blog at that point.

Thanks for your patience!
