Beading With Friends
I'm a very lucky lady. Something that started as a "crafty past time" has become a passion and business through which I've met people who I know will be friends for life. One of those people, NanC Meinhardt, has a group of bead artists over to her studio on one Sunday every month to share their work, thoughts and inspiration. Today was such a day. I often look at the men and women who surround me on these Sundays, and think to myself, "What am I doing here?" Certainly my work is no where near their caliber. The art that comes out of our "Beading With Friends" Sundays is mind boggling. However, I've come to be less intimidated by these artists, who I now call friends. I've found that these Sundays force me to stretch myself, stretch my imagination -- and I always leave these wonderful afternoons full of new ideas and the energy to create new, exciting things. Now, I just need about 10 more hours a day to do everything. . .
