Bead Animals Bar - Hermit Werds - tiny thumbnails of a fox, spiders, dolphin, whales, bunny, rooster, octopus, crab, killer whale, and duck

Hello, friend!

This site has switched from art gallery to blog and crafting to nail art (with a smidge of crafting). While the original page you sought is gone; the original site owner is still here. Hi! My previous survey established that you were coming here in search of patterns/instructions. When it comes to the old pins you followed to get here, I do still want to publish the final blog posts detailing where the pattern was from.

Note: Marilyne’s site has finally gone down. I don’t know if she is still alive and/or has any plans to move it, but I have updated the links to point to it on
