A Bit of the Personal Stash
Everything finds its way to an ending. Same for this bead work blog.
I'm off to explore a thousand other paths & pursuits, and the time has come to wind this up. Since this will be my last post here, I thought I'd do a little tidy-up. First, some nerdy stats.
- I've made 590 posts (not counting this one)
- which have been viewed, variously, over 144K times (!)
- and I've managed to accumulate 176 followers thru the years,
- many of whom have fallen away to chase other interests -
- after all, I've been doing this for over 10 years.
Now, some not-so-boring stuff.
This has been one of the most personally enriching endeavors for me, and through this platform I've received so much inspiration, friendship, support, and laughter. I hope I was able to give some of that back to at least a few of you out there. Most especially I'd like to thank everyone involved in the Beaded Journal Project. I learned more in that inaugural year than I ever dreamed possible. I'm not just talking technique, here, either. In particular, my deepest thanks to Robin Atkins - a truly gifted teacher.
Gosh, this has been a ton of fun for me - and I won't swear I'll not be back. Never say never and all that. My final bead work sale will continue until September over on Etsy*, and the blog will stay out here in cyberspace for some time to come - comments will be disabled in mid-August, though,
so if there's anything you forgot to tell me . . .
Cheers! I really don't think there'll be more later.
