The Road to the Blogosphere is Paved with Good Intentions.
I am trying to figure out how I can be more attentive to my blog. How is it I had time for it for a few years and just don't anymore? I really think it is because I rarely use my computer anymore. I use my phone for everything except blogging and e-mails that are longer than 5 sentences.
Are blogs dying off? It is super simple to just post things on Instagram and Facebook. Granted, the photo quality is poor ( I will pay more attention to my camera on my next phone), but that never was my strength anyway. Just last week I got 500 business cards printed and took the etsy site off the card, but kept the blog on, so I guess I should re-commit to this...maybe use it as a way to catalog what I have on hand. Maybe use it to express myself a little deeper. Maybe use it to figure things out ~ beaded and unbeaded things. I am at a time of transition in my life, but I just don't know what I am transitioning to/toward/into/whatever! I am far from unhappy. In fact, I am feeling lighter in my heart every day (personally, not globally). But I feel a change coming and am getting ready to embrace it. I just wish I knew more about it. Time will reveal all. Or some, anyway.
Cynthia and I got together in November for a much needed weekend of Beading and Talking and Silence and Eating and Shopping. It was Bliss. I could have stayed until January if I didn't have a bottomless list of commitments. I asked Cynthia to show me the way of the Fringe. It was one of the main reasons why I started beading all those years ago, yet it always alluded me. I am still working on the sample piece she used to teach me and I do believe it is going to be spectacular when it is done. In the meantime, I have been fringing away, with varying degrees of success. I still have a ways to go, but I am enjoying the learning process immensely. Touching fringe, seeing fringe, the sway of fringe, the weight of fringe (when done right, as I am still learning) ~ really REALLY excites me! I don't even mind that is is so damn time consuming. As of now, all I can say is MORE FRINGE!!!
