At the start of the week, I got some disappointing news. I had worked hard on a project for months but it came to the end of the road on Monday. It was the first time in a long time that I felt so bummed, but I think that it was most difficult because I really believed in the project and had a hard time imagining it not moving forward. Well, life never keeps me down for too long. Not all projects work out and I did try my best. There is not much more that I could have done and sometimes things just are not meant to be.
Today, I opened up a box and found the new book Easy Beading Vol. 9 from the Publisher of BeadStyle magazine. I was thrilled to see that they included my necklace and bracelet, "Ringed in Color" on pages 78-81. It was just the pick-me-up that I needed.
