Back To My Beginning's - My Short Story

How did I start my creative lifestyle? I could say, like most people I got it from my parents. You know monkey see, monkey do. Both my parents were really creative. My mom sewed, knit, and crocheted. scrapbooking came in later years too. Pretty much the whole works. My dad started woodworking when I was probably in my teen years. He also did stained glass and crocheted ( I think he can knit too). So all in all my parents were really creative I was constantly trying new things from drawing to knitting and sewing to my pride and joy, the bead loom. I always seem to come right back to jewelry. I'm not quite sure why but most of the time, it was always bead weaving. I would ask for loom after loom every few years.
As I grew older, other things started to take creativities place. I found no more time for creating, making jewelry, or looming. I guess I kind of lost the creative edge that I had, I didn't really do much. I was in school I had jobs I let other things take over.

In about 2006 is when I decided I wanted to start selling clothing, but I didn't have the startup cash. So I decided to begin with, I would start by selling small accessories and jewelry. In case you didn't notice, the clothing never happened. although my jewelry has gone through many stages I still seem to always stick with that. Now, for the first time, in almost a decade. I am back to my roots, and bead weaving. This is where I truly feel like I belong. The collections that you see gradually rolling out into my shop are pure, complete Labors of love. I am now truly back to my roots, back to what I love , and where I belong.

Hey guys.

So today I created a new goal for myself. By the heading above I'm sure you can guess what it is.

I am challenging myself to design, photograph and add ONE PIECE of jewelry to the shop a day.

My short term goal will be to see if I can keep this up until the new year, so January 1st. It's going to be kinda hard with holidays, so I might pre-add just before those dates. I'm really looking forward to this, and I hope you will tag along for the ride.
