This is the response to the question "Why do you want to know where I get my beads?"
I make bracelets and was looking for cool beads. I've asked around about different craft materials. Thought you could help but I guess I was wrong. I've been given good sites to visit and places to actually go to in Chicago so forget I asked. Don't worry about it. You don't have to respond to this e-mail I was just responding to your question. Thanks for you time.
My response even though I was told that I didn't have to respond.
Many people have inquired about the beads and wire with intent to make their own. To answer your question, x is a good resource. Googling for beads leads to stores. Local stores are useful as well. I may use beads from other jewelry. The wire is from a local store. The best advice I can offer is do some searching. I spend a lot of time looking for beads and have others looking and buying too. Also, crafters are only helpful if they genuinely like you and your art. Lighten up and just because I asked you a question does not mean that I do not want to help you.
Now I've shared this email with a few people and all of them have asked why didn't she mention her bracelets, send a link to a fotki, website, or attach a picture in the first email. They all came to the conclusion that she was LYING because she came off with a serious attitude. I know people say you can't tell the tone of a person through written word, but in this one, I sense she wasn't pleased with my question.
I believe people target me because they think that I have a fan base. My blog doesn't really get that many hits. I put sitemeter and statcounter on the blog because my posts went without comment. That's pretty lame, vain, pathetic, desparate, but it did cross my mind. I was thinking maybe I should stop blogging. Never that. I stopped tracking my hits a while back because most of the hits were coming from people looking up Sisterlocks, PCOS, or low blood pressure.
Then it hit me. I really don't blog about much to have people stopping by my blog. I don't talk about popular things - politics, hair, new fashions styles, or celebrities, how hard it is being a black woman, or how the media makes us feel. I have a simple solution. I just turn off the tv. That way, when I see my reflection in the black screen - I'm the prettiest woman on tv. I don't have children to show cute pictures of. Ciara is not the type of dog to get 'your dog is so cute' comments. She's prettier than most dogs, but for goodness sakes, who says a petite boxer/pit is pretty but the owner and a man. And when men say it it's because they get a chance to say, "Oh she's a pretty b****." Just because she's a female dog doesn't mean she likes to be called the technical term. Her name is Ciara.
Back to people sending me emails. I get emails like this from time to time. I don't share them with you because, I like to think I'm protecting people from harsh comments and products that might be offensive.
Find people who have been blogging with a fan base. Afrobella. I believe Naturally Sophia is the next Afrobella. Send her products to try and blog about. Sophia - people will send you free stuff!!! Think about it.
I leave you good ladies with this video.
