The fun part was looking at all the things I had made, places I had been, adventures I have had and the other artists I have featured. My work has changed - for the better I think! Since Beadware's inception in 2001 I have made more than 780 necklaces, 1400 bracelets, and 4200 pairs of earrings!! I have attended 160 public events with my mobile shop and held 27 home studio shows. How do I know all that you wonder? Well I am queen of the spreadsheet. Just ask my accountant!
I have several more tedious tasks on my list - updating my photo gallery, re-filling my online store, cleaning my studio....the list never ends. But I am thankful I am able to do something I enjoy and something creative for a living. Jumping full time into Beadware in 2010 was a huge leap of faith. The sacrifices have been worth it and I have had some fun adventures along the way and made many new friends.
