Bead Dreaming

So I put on my big girl panties today and entered Bead Dreams. Just entering is a victory for me; I've wanted to enter, but been too scared to do more than read the directions for several years now.

But today, I did it. I'm proud of me! I overcame my fears and did something that was completely outside my comfort zone.

That's one of my themes for this year; this year I want to try things that I've wanted to do, but been too scared to do. It doesn't matter if I'm a finalist or not (though wouldn't that be something if I were?) because my goal was to enter, and I did.

I can't promise to be brave enough to tell you if nothing comes of it . . . but you can sure bet I will if it does!

I think being brave is one of the bravest things we can do.

As yours is a blog I read regularly and really enjoy, I am passing on the Sunshine Award to you.

See my blog for details.

That's great news! Like you this year I have made the decision to venture out of my comfort zone and stop doubting myself. My husband is always telling me I am as talented as many of the beaders I admire - I just have to keep telling "myself" that.

Having admired your work for a while now I am sure you will do well!

P.s - remember we set ourselves that challenge on the Aust Beading Forum before Christmas using one of your patterns... we must still do that!!
