I’m sure Haley’s ADD runs in the family – it’s so hard for me to sit down and bead shard necklaces. I love the way they look and feel, and I have a bunch of request for them, but stringing beads is like pulling teeth for me. Some people might find it relaxing – not me. I did complete one last night for a friend, Barbara. Here it is, and I do love it. But, dang, that’s a lot of beads!
Grandson Haley was featured on last night’s local news with an inspiring message for other kids with learning disabilities: “You can do it!”. Hopefully, his encouragement will keep teens with learning difficulties channeling their talents in creative directions and away from the “other” kind of nightly news. I am so proud of him and predict his career as an author will be just as successful and meaningful as his father’s.
This last-minute idea was wonderful – it was practically a sell-out and I had the best time visiting with friends and talking about art. It’s something I plan to do again on a regular basis every few months.
Many thanks to everyone who came (and purchased).
