So… remember last year when I decided to do the Ultimate Blog Challenge, and blog every day for a month, and how I thought it would make me blog more?

Um…. that clearly didn’t happen!

Not dissimilar to last year… my life is getting busier. Last year, I started a new job that I still haven’t blogged much about (sorry! I really am!)

This year…. I’m going back to school!

Which I will write about…


When I thought I would try again with the Ultimate Blog Challenge, I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say, and what I could blog about every single day for 31 days… because, let’s face it, last year I was all over the place! I wrote some pieces I was extremely proud of, and at least one that made me laugh the entire time I wrote it. But there was no real cohesion; it was like my brain took all of its random thoughts for 31 days, spit them out somewhat eloquently, and called it a day.

I don’t want that to happen again.

So… I have a plan!

For those who have stuck around from the beginning (I am so unbelievably grateful for all of you, by the way!) remember a long long long long long time ago when I wanted to write about my love of beading and jewelry making?

That time is now!

Every day for the next 30 days, I will blog about this hobby. I’ll blog about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the creative process. I’ll share pictures of pieces that have been sitting stored away for a very long time and maybe you’ll decide you like them and get in touch so you can have some of your own. I’ll make more pieces now that my beading room no longer looks like a teeny tiny home office with glaringly white paint on the walls and is actually a place I want to be!

And maybe I’ll share some of how I do this all with not much usable vision… because that’s both part of the challenge and the most boring part of this process.

Come and join me!
