My father was very excited for me and my ebay career. He used to call me "Beady" sometimes. He'd phone me and say "Hi, Beady, how's ebay today?" I think he really got a kick out of the fact that I had found something I really love to do. He was so excited and proud when my beads had a lot of bids - not because of the money but because it meant that people wanted my beads. He never really saw the beads I made until one time when I had them with me on a visit to the Lake last summer. Of course he had seen a few at a time, but this was when I was preparing for a show, so there were tons of colorful beads all in one place. He was favorably impressed.
