I don't think I am complicated, I like to do what I like to do.
I like to do anything outside, in fresh air.
I like to be around people; kind people, well intentioned people.
I like to read.
I LOVE to make my beads.
I like to be creative and crafty.
I like to visit with my family and friends.
I like to have cocktails with my friends.
I like to drink tea with my sisters.
I could throw all types of things I like to do in that mix but basically that really sums it up. Put me with some great people, outside, add a cocktail or two (or a cup of tea) and I am happy.
That leads me to this post. I am questioning what I am doing right now? Am I heading in the direction I intend to be heading in or am I just doing because someone asked me to? Last year was a tumultuous year with my familys' medical issues and I think now is as good a time as any for me to pull in and spend time with myself and my intentions. My family still has health concerns to deal with but that inspires me even more to slow down and take a look at my direction and ask myself some questions. Where am I going? Where do I want to be? What do I want?
I think now would be a good time for a website and blog redesign, to better reflect me as a person and the work I love to create. I hope I can make the time for this very soon. Redesigning can be so time consuming and I am not completely knowledgeable in everything web related.
I have resigned from two positions I have held in two different groups. I am leaving another group altogether. It is time to reevaluate my direction.
It is my intention to dabble a bit more and have fun in the challenges I choose to participate in, such as Bead Soup.
I would like to become more involved with Beads of Courage and the ISGB.
I would like to attend a Gathering.
I would like to add metals to my work, become better versed in metal smithing techniques.
I would like to enter my work into some local fairs this fall.
I would like to redesign and move my studio space to better suit metal smithing.
I would like to sell more beads in my Etsy shop.
New Year Resolutions? I suppose they are but not because it is a New Year. I set these intentions because it is the right time in my life to make these choices. Thank you for taking the time to visit with me. Your comments are always welcome.
