I've been asked..."Why ReeBeader?" so I figured it was time to explain this odd name. It started with my real name, Marie, being shortened by my nieces and nephews to Auntie Ree. As they got older, it became Ree or Ree Ree. With this nickname and a (then) freelance writing background, I adopted the username ReeWriter. Although I'm still doing a bit of writing, beads have sort of consumed my life (and I know you know how that goes) so ReeBeader only seemed appropriate!
