One of the individuals mentioned that she had brought me back these beads from her vacation to Sedona, Arizona last year. She also mentioned she had never seen a jewelry project materialize with them!!
Interestingly, it didn't bring me to be defensive or make excuses. I actually had a thought in that moment that the right beads will be there when you need them, but that means they might have to hang out with you for a while until that moment arrives.
Age is a funny thing, it does tend to bring realizations like this, which is a GOOD thing! I get so excited and feel that there must be some kind of good karma happening when I get a design idea and I know immediately that I have the right bead and know right where it is! Sometimes the beads are fairly new and sometimes, it might be a bead I've had for years.
I'm not sure my answer went over all that well, but to me it was meaningful! I have evolved! :)
I'd love to hear if you have had similar moments of the "right beads at the right time"!
I also wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow is the 1 day only BLOGMANIA event!! I will be giving away a copy of my book along with a grab bag of miscellaneous beads. You will just need to leave a comment on tomorrow's post for a chance to win!
Additionally, I will have a number of links to other blogs who are also giving something away. There are over 100 blogs participating. I can't wait to see all the possible loot!
See you tomorrow!!
