Here is my entry for The Age of the Dragonfly Blog Hop.  Fun challenge, and the piece is a definite departure for me!

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Pursuing my 2014 goal to participate in blog hops has led me to participate in (1) The Age of the Dragonfly, post due by 6/28/2014 (coming to a computer nearby soon), and (2) The Haberdashery Blog Hop (post due in August), and a couple of others I don't remember the name of right now.  What I didn't realize, but should have, is that these commitments, although fun, take up a lot of time since I work slowly.  Its not that the skill is lacking because I'm not doing anything particularly difficult; its that I work slowly because I'm so dang indecisive.  (Also there are very few hours in the day/night free for creating.)  According to Deryn Mentock, speed will come with experience as a result of increased confidence.  One would think (and does, in fact think) that by now I would not over think every design.  Ha!  That assumes I don't over think everything!  I wonder how old I'll be, how much experience I'll have, before I have developed sufficient confidence in living life and creating jewelry that I don't over.think.everything.  If you know the answer, please share it with me, LOL.
