During this last week of 2012 I have been thinking about the year,
asking myself "how would I best describe 2012?"
In a nutshell - I have spent 2012 concentrating
on becoming more "known" in the beading community.
I have achieved this through Facebook, today accepting my 1000th 'friend' request.
I achieved further acclaim through The Battle of the Beadsmith Tournament, in July.
I achieved this having patterns published in the German magazine Perlen Poesie,
and another one in an Australian magazine.
It has been a year of experimentation, finding my own style
along with my love of colour surfacing in my more recent creations.
All helping to get my name "out there".
I am happy with how 2012 has transpired, I hope you are also.
I am looking forward to 2013 as I have lots of goals.
2013 will be spent
** further developing my creations,
** further learning the graphics required for pattern writing,
** releasing my patterns for sale when I achieve a standard of professionalism in the writing,
** entering another Beadsmith Tournament
and hopefully trying to make some income from my passion.
So I shall be a busy boy for another year,
hopefully sharing my journey with you along the way.
Happy New Year
to all my followers and visitors.
I hope your 2013 is a wonderful year and all you desire comes to you with ease.
