Time to go back to beading

Shiny ~ December 8 - 2011

It's been almost a year since the last time I updated this blog; almost a year since I lost my sweet precious Bubi and over a year and a half since the last time I did any beading.

During this time of grief and depression I haven't been able to concentrate enough to do much of anything, I just couldn't get motivated. Lack of sleep and a facebook game addiction did the rest.

When Bubi died, I didn't want to get any more kitties. It felt like I would have been cheating on him and I was afraid of not being able to love another one just as much, but then I realized that these feelings were not different from the ones I had when Murphy died. I finally came to the conclusion that my heart has enough place to love another kitty, without taking away any of the love I had and will always have for Bubi, Murphy and all the other furry kids I lost.

After a long search, on June 4th, I finally went to pick up Shiny and brought him home with me. As soon as I held him for the first time, I was already in love with that tiny fluff ball.

Seven months later, my little rascal is not that little anymore; in fact he's already a big kitty and he's still growing! He's as sweet and lovable as can be, but he's still a rascal and gets into everything, running, jumping and climbing everywhere. I've been thinking about going back to beading for a while now, but I've been too busy trying to teach some manners to the little guy and I'm still trying to figure out where and how to bead without too many chances of having an almost 6 kilos cat landing at full speed on my beading tray. ;-)

I have many ideas and things I'd like to try, but before starting any new project, I want to finish the Atolls necklace and paint several doll faces that have been sitting and waiting for my attention for too long. I also need to update this site, so it's really time to get going.

Last, but not least, I want to thank the friends who didn't give up on me (you know who you are), even though I've been terrible at keeping in touch, always late with replying to messages and not sharing any beading or interesting stuff. Thank you for encouraging me and for listening to me when all I had to share were just sad and pessimistic thoughts. I will always love you for this! 

Aloha to All ♥

Thank you, Dulcey!

Let's see if I can stick to it and hopefully have some work to post soon 'cause I'm definitely not a good writer! ;-)
