Well, I'm learning more about how to do things on the computer everyday, thanks to my friends. I've been trying to update my blog for the past week or so. FYI I am definitely no computer expert. Fortunately for me, I have friends who are.
For the past 9 months I have learned about myself, my beading, and my computer. Not bad for an old lady. I do say that with tongue in cheek as I refuse to grow up even though I will be 65 soon.
After reviewing some of my older bead embroidery, I realized just how much I have learned in the past few months. It kind of makes me cringe when I look at the old stuff. Thanks to Robin and her BJP, I can see a significant difference in my work now. I know I have a long way to go to reach the goals I have set for myself, but I think they are attainable.
More than anything else, I am learning to look within myself for what I need. I want to put more of my emotions, positive and negative, into my beadwork. Bead embroidery is my sanity saver. ( There are those who would say it is too late, but.....).
I hope that Robin does another BJP, but even if she doesn't, this one has given me the confidence to enter into other projects such as the "Pink Artists" and this year I am doing a piece for Beading For a Cure (colorectal cancer research). I'm very excited about these projects. I not only get to bead, but to do it for a good cause just puts icing on the cake.
