In February 2011, I became a real writer. I did not realize that I had it in me. I joined Squidoo for one of the beading groups I belong to but only wrote a couple of thrown together lenses because I didn't know what I was doing. Then a year later started writing again but not getting anywhere until I joined the RocketMoms in February 2011. I now have a love of writing. I know I can really write about almost any theme because the RocketMoms showed me how to really create wonderful articles and to think them through. I am also a bead artist and bead pattern designer. I have loved crafts all my life but when I found beading and jewelry making, I was lost. All my other crafts went by the wayside. Don't get me wrong all crafts are glorious but beading and jewelry making takes the top of the heap.
