MY MOJO AND A WHINE
My bead mojo is gone again and I can't find it anywhere. I look at some of the beads I've made, or the jewelry I've turned them into and I am pleased, until I offer them to the public and they are rejected. It's the way I judge my work, if it's accepted by others. At my recent bead show, sales were down considerably for all of us, and I know in my head that it's the economy, but my heart doesn't see it that way. So I have this little argument going on in my head. Do I keep making beads or just throw in the towel? Maybe I should just quit trying to sell anything and just enjoy the glass, but part of enjoying it is seeing others appreciate it. So this is my little whine for the day. Minor in the grand scheme of all things, but still troubling, even if only to me.
