Happy New Year

During this last week of 2012 I have been thinking about the year, 
asking myself "how would I best describe 2012?"

In a nutshell - I have spent 2012 concentrating 
on becoming more "known" in the beading community.

 I have achieved this through Facebook, today accepting my 1000th 'friend' request. 
I achieved further acclaim through The Battle of the Beadsmith Tournament, in July.
I achieved this having patterns published in the German magazine Perlen Poesie, 
and another one in an Australian magazine. 

It has been a year of experimentation, finding my own style 
along with my love of colour surfacing in my more recent creations. 
All helping to get my name "out there".

I am happy with how 2012 has transpired, I hope you are also. 

I am looking forward to 2013 as I have lots of goals.
2013 will be spent 
** further developing my creations, 
** further learning the graphics required for pattern writing, 
** releasing my patterns for sale when I achieve a standard of professionalism in the writing, 
** entering another Beadsmith Tournament 

and hopefully trying to make some income from my passion.

So I shall be a busy boy for another year, 
hopefully sharing my journey with you along the way.

Happy New Year 
to all my followers and visitors.
I hope your 2013 is a wonderful year and all you desire comes to you with ease.
