Trying Out Jewellery Maker

Here in the UK there is a whole television channel 
dedicated to 
jewellery making. 
They also have an on line shop 
so it really was only a matter of time before I purchased something 
to give them a try!

Ordering was easy, 
 delivery was tracked and 
the gemstones were tasselled!

Why Not: List Your Beading Goals

To do list notebook ...
Via Pinterest 

With the start of 2014 I'm sure a lot of people are making resolutions. 
To achieve certain goals, give up certain vices and generally kick start 2014 
in a healthier way. 
Probably all to be forgotten by about ....mid January....!

So instead, or perhaps as well as , 
how about making a list of craft goals. 

 Beading projects you want to have a go at this year. 

It doesn't have to be a 'do these specific things
 in this numerical order' kind of list
 - this isn't for chores this is just for fun - 
 more of a written acknowledgement that these are the things 
you would like to try and achieve over the coming months.

It could be fun to look back 
at the end of the year and see just how far you've gone, what new skills
you've acquired and what you've achieved.
