Fulfilling Your Resolution to Learn

We made it into a brand New Year! It’s nice to get back to a regular schedule, although let’s face it – we need to break out once in a while – right? Do you set resolutions?

How about we start off with ‘I will!’ “I will learn a new bead stitch!”, “I will learn how to use a torch!” or “I will learn how to make glass beads!” I wills are much more fun than I will nots.
