This was just what the bead doctor ordered. Making the bead soup was such fun - combining different colors and types of beads - I was pretty conservative on this first one. Beading the freeform netted bracelet was the most fun I had beading in a LONG time. I also had just the right little button to use as a closure. I love the way this bracelet came out, it was a pleasure to make and I am wearing it now - this one is for me!!!!
Next I want to make a Christmas bead soup - I can see it already, reds, greens and golds - later today and then a beautiful Christmas bracelet for me to wear to some holiday parties - everyone will be so jealous!!!
Thank you Beverly for getting me back on track - I am so glad to be excited about beading again.

This is the position I find myself in now that I am back in NJ. I haven't done any serious beading in a long time - almost 3 months. I am finding it hard to jump back in - I say I want to - but am not putting the beads where my mouth is.
These are the things I have tried so far:
- cleaning and reorganizing my bead room - always a stalling technique for me
- writing down a list of projects I want to do - another stalling technique
- starting a bracelet - step in the right direction but that was 3 days ago and only an inch done and it is netting
- looking at beading books - good for inspiration but not giving me any
So I just don't know - well I really do, like Nike says "Just Do It". If it is fear, fear of what?? I keep going round and round like a dog chasing it's tail and I am getting nothing accomplished and I am getting more and more frustrated - not good.
