Hi Everyone!
I have met this very cool lady a while back when she purchased some of my Nicole's BeadBacking. If she lived closer I would definitely be hanging out with her. She is so full of fun and energy and artistic talent. So I would like to introduce Maureen Taylorson (AKA) Moeart. Here she is in her own words.

When I was little, in cold, dark Buffalo, New York, I started my crafting life making my own doll clothes and then my own clothes. Life intervened and over the decades I found myself living in Honolulu where I've been these last 33 years. Crafting called again so I progressed to drawing and painting then I found polymer clay. When I decided I wanted to learn how to bead, a friend in San Jose taught me...long distance! During that time, I was also teaching myself wire wrapping. Now, with those 3 crafts, I have more fun than any one person deserves. :D

A new beading friend told me to go to see Nicole's BeadBacking when I was whining one day about white backing. And so, I trotted off to Nicole's site and didn't look back! I told my friend Ginger and she bought some, too. For those who love to bead, this stuff is the best! It comes in lots of gorgeous colors and doesn't fray! It's soft enough to use as actual backing when you don't want to use ultra suede. It's firm enough for good bead/cab support but is thin enough so your finished piece looks wonderful. I just got some cabs from Nicole and they are gorgeous! Guess I better get going and make something, hunh? :D So, here are a couple photos of stuff I'm making or have just finished. Yay for Nicole's Bead Backing!!

Geeesss I should make Maureen my spokesperson LOL
