Our serendipitous journey began in 2000, nearly 20 years later, we are absolutely still loving everything that has become LA DE DA!
It began in 2000 on a trip to the Oregon Coast. It involved a toddler, a newborn, a recently sold business and NO CLUE what was next! I spent my boys nap time wandering in Historic Newport until I found the most magical place ever! Hidden in the back of a tiny shop was a room of beads-in the middle a giant BIN of beads. It was an escape- I was mesmerized. I spent hours sifting through beads! I sifted, I bought and all the while chatting with the owner. She encouraged me to try my hand at a few things. She taught me the basics. I went home and after the boys were tucked in bed for the night I began to experiment. That experimentation quickly became an obsession. I was creating like crazy! I felt like my brain had all of a sudden clicked on! And with that my "No clue" to my future was realized. This is what I wanted to do.
