BuggyAboutBecca

Here are my wonderful nieces again. I posted this picture a while back when they were modeling their Halloween costumes. Rebecca is on the left and Sarah is on the right.

I think both of these girls are beautiful, intelligent, and talented, but I want to let you know about Rebecca's latest endeavor. She has started her own business called BuggyAboutBeads.

You see, Rebecca is a jewelry designer, and now she is a young entrepreneur, too. She has launched her business on Etsy.com and you can see her designs here. Rebecca has been learning about jewelry design and making her own pieces for several years. All that while being a straight A student, ASB representative, and an active member of her church's youth group. She is an amazing young woman.

On Sunday, she showed me her latest creations and this was my favorite. I may just have to buy it...


I hope you'll take a moment and visit her site. We hear so much in the news and such about all the young people who make bad choices, and I think we need to give those that are making good choices with their lives more attention.

Thanks!

    I am also very close to my niece and do whatever I can to elevate her self-esteem, encourage her to set and reach goals, and, most importantly be true to herself.

    You are a wonderful mentor for your nieces and I am sure they are proud of you as well.

    It is very rare to see such discipline and aspirations at such a young age. The world is Rebecca's oyster from which will come many beautiful pearls I am sure. Her work is quite impressive.

    The jewelery is very nice...I don't have the patience to do that beadwork. Glad someone is out there to do it for us.
