Where do I start. This past two years has been like a roller coaster ride that never stops.
My first inspiration was an email I received from Donna Kato She told me to just keep practicing and I would be a success.
I found PCC
I switched to Premo and then to Kato which I love for the caning I love doing.
I went to Shrinemount, met Leigh, Kathy, Judy, Linda, Oscelyn and so many others.
Made two great friends, who believe in me and push me just a little when needed.
"Talked" to all of you on the message board.
Saw Donna Kato at Philidelphia.
Attended the first Pittsburgh Retreat, then Shrinemount again, the ACCI show in Chicago where I met more of the polymer elite, including Lisa Pavelka and Mareen Carlsen, and I just attended the second Pittsburgh Retreat.
I really knew I was improving though because not to long ago I was cleaning up the older beads and sending some that were not so great to the family children to play with. I threw in a group of beads that I now declare flawed and realized that I had made those beads at the firt retreat just a little over a year ago. I was so excited about them at the time but now I'm going to send them as rejects. I did pull out one or two so I would have them to remember where I started. I cannot imagine where the next few years will take me.
