Greetings from southern New Mexico!

When I discovered this project several weeks ago I hesitated a teeny bit before deciding that this was something wonderful to participate in. After viewing the response Robin has received, I find that I am not alone in this feeling.

My beading experience up to a year ago had been that of embellishing 16" fashion doll costumes for many years. Last year I decided that all those gorgeous beads I had accumulated over the years needed to be put to extraordinary use and I made every daughter (four of them), daughter-in-law, sister, sisters-in-law, cousins, etc. an amulet bag -- twelve of them in all. Needless to say I have been beading steadily ever since -- beading seems to be even more addictive than designing for those dollies!

No blog established yet, but I am sure it won't take long for it to happen with all the excitement this project is generating.

Looking forward so much to the coming year and everyone's beaded journal!

Yay! Another New Mexican! I'm up here in ABQ - I get down to Las Cruces about once a year to visit that great bookstore, My COAS!

Nice to (virtually) meet you!!

Hi, Morwyn --

Isn't that the greatest bookstore? Two of our daughters live in Albuquerque and we do get up there every few months.

Great to meet you (virtually), too!
