We beaded lovelies were created with the utmost care and attention to ensure our survival. However, we are not invincible. To help us live a long and happy life, we ask that you please “bead kind” to us. Here are some guidelines: • Don’t let babies eat us or grab us. • Don’t let us “grab” the door for you. • Don’t smash us in a drawer. Ouch! • Don’t shower with us or run us through the washer. • Do put us in a safe place to sleep. • Do show us off. We like it! • Do please tell your friends that we have friends who need homes, too!
