First Post

Hi this is my first blog ever. I'm not even sure what will happen here but anyway...I've joined a marvelous group of beaders in the Bead Journal Project. This is a year committed to beading one page per month for an entire year. My pages started out as 4 x 6 inches but have been upgraded by a wedding invitation envelope. So I think I'm at 5X7 now. I have been working on my project daily. I started out frantic and working really hard on this project. I realized a few days ago that I was stressing about the page. I have since talked to myself and others and have realized that this is supposed to be fun! So, I am breathing slowly and playing with beads daily but inbetween life.

I probably should introduce myself - I'm Heidi. I live in Manchester, CT with my husband, son and our dog Milo. I'm a preschool teacher. We just got out of school last week! We graduated off our little ones and will welcome a new group in September. We are just a preschool - no day care so I work 8 - 12:30ish. Not too bad. I love my job. I teach basic beading at Beads East and make art dolls and other things.

I will try to post some pictures soon.

Congratulations on your first blog! I don't know about you but this is my first group anything via the internet also. Yes, relax! As Robin said, there are no bead police. Maybe one piece will take two weeks and maybe one will take six to do- so what! Have fun with it and yes, share some more, more pictures.
