How Paper Beads Are Made-Uganda Project

Hey Nail Gals,
The project is off to a great start with several orders already underway!! Thank you for all who have shared my blog via email and Facebook I really appreciate you taking the time to spread the word :)

Many of you are asking HOW the paper beads are made because they are so unique and beautiful. They are made from recycled magazine and calendar pages. The women chose the right kind of paper in color, weight, and glossiness which may take up to 2.5 hours to travel to Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. Check out this video that shows the process, so amazing!
Im thinking about doing a nail art design inspired by the beads :)

Hey Everyone,

Its been a LONG TIME since my last post!! Ive been so busy with school and work that I have neglected my nail art, horrible I know. Summer is fast approaching and although this post isnt nail related, it does involve jewelery! I am going to working hard this summer to raise money for Outreach Uganda with the sale of bracelets made with beautiful Ugandan beads and would love your support. Please check out the link below to my new blog explaining the project!
