Life Comes Atcha Pretty Fast Is What I'm Sayin'

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 September, though,
so if there's anything you forgot to tell me . . .

Cheers! I really don't think there'll be more later.
