These are from Monday, March 3rd. When I was showing my mother these and a couple other failed flower beads she made the comment that it was a good thing that I enjoyed making beads. I realize now that she meant it was a good thing that I enjoy the activity enough to practice and get better at it.
I took it easy today and only made one flower bead. It came out pretty well I think. I’ll post a picture later.
I’m putting a little bit of pressure on myself to get beads ready to sell on Etsy. This is a good thing. It makes me really focus on getting beads the right size, shape, and quality. I think if I were just doing it for fun I wouldn’t try so hard, or be as critical (in a constructive way).
