The Journey Begins

This week was quite an eye-opener. I have been trying to juggle my 8a.m to 4p.m. job with online social networking and preparation for creating a collection for my online debut on August 01,2010. Life has been hectic.I have been going to bed at times as late as 3a.m.
The enormity of my goal has filled me at times with excitement, and, at other times with utter dread.The excitement usually wins. Being a novice in this online world, makes it doubly hard to have things right at the first try.So after I stumble and bump myself, I straighten up and move on with a song in my heart.
At present, I am working on new templates for my leather flowers collection. I am not sure whether I am doing  beads, seeds and the leather flowers jewelry or to concentrate on just the leather flowers.
So I am on the journey and loving it.

A Whole New W orld

Life is awesome, scary,exciting and crazy at times. At present, I find myself in unknown territory, completely bewildered but moving forward none the less.

I am from Trinidad. I am a 59 year mature or can I say young woman ( how do we measure age?). I am due to retire from my 8 to 4 job next year. I work for a company that has a number of craft schools throughout the island. I am the manager of one of these schools. I was once a jewelry tutor at that same school. I also create jewelry from seeds, beads, coconut and calabash shells and my favorite- `leather flowers jewelry`. I do exclusive jewelry for a few clients, so at times there are not enough hours in the day.

While doing research online, the idea came to me to open an online store. I looked at all the possibilities, I researched for hours and I spent a lot of sleepless nights. I told myself this would be good for when I retire.

I realised that I have to blog, tweet and a whole new world opened to me.

BLOG- what do I know of blogging?

TWITTER- what do I know about tweeting?

That is when life started to get scary, exciting and crazy. I have left my safe little life and gone into what I thought was `young people thing`.

So here I am with what I tell myself is the start of my blogging. So be gentle with me and I am open for good, rewarding advice. So I am pressing forward. Soon come.
