Thank You And Happy New Year

Let me start this new year's post by saying thank all of you so very much for your support and e-mails over the past few months. I know I didn't always write back, but know that it meant alot to me! In spite of the fact that each day potentially presents a fresh new start, there is something very compelling about a new year which evokes renewal and the desire to set new goals and the permission to forget last years short comings and unmet goals. I am soooooo ready for this freshness. See ya 2010. It's been real. Before the baby came in August, I had just begun to play with some bead weaving. I bought a few tutorials on Etsy and worked a couple of them. The beads pictured in my banner were worked with a pattern from The Crimson Moon. So that is on the list. In August, I had just finished a patinas workshop and for my birthday, I had picked up some terrific books on metal working. I want to pick up where I left off there. I have a couple more workshops coming up, one on soldering and one on metal manipulation. This holiday season I spent alot of time crocheting. Now I just know that there is probably a lot a jewelry artist can do with some simple crocheting. So that is on the list. And since I have so much wool roving stashed, it occurred to me that I could probably hand spin some yarn. Mr. Pearl and Pebble signed me up for a spinning class for one of my Christmas presents. So all in all, I am feeling hopeful and productive for our new year here. I hope you all do as well. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
