What a wonderful morning it is. For some reason (we wont explore it to much - it might jinx it) I woke up with a new lease on life! I am not sure if someone 'spiked' my morning bottle of water, or what happened, but I am here, I am happy and life just feels REALLY good today! Maybe it is because I actually got to bead yesterday! For several days I have been just TOO busy to bead and that always ways on me.
Do you find that your craft/art is what gets you by? Do you do the design or work out of necessity for your sanity as much as for the joy of it? I guess I do. I know that physically my hands get soar and swell sometimes if I don't bead, but I really didn't notice how much it effects me mentally. It is almost like my therapy! When I am at shows and people come in my booth and watch me bead (usually bead weaving) they say something like.... "How do you have the patience to do that"? I always reply; "I only have patience for my beads, not my kids, the beads keep me sane"! And most just don't understand how true that comment it!! Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE my kids and wouldn't change them for the world, but, the beads..... keep me calm!!
Here is what I was able to make yesterday! I just love it! It is one of those necklaces that you can wear with the clasp showing and it looks just as good as with the clasp in the back!! What do you think?
