Thank you for all of your comments on my last post! You really made me feel a lot better:) All I know is, right now, it’s late at night and I’m busy beading my self-portrait, the Maxell Girl. I’m also blogging, drinking beer, and listening to rock music at the same time. That must mean I’m back to normal… right?
I was thinking about this today, so I asked myself the following questions to see if I actually have a beading addiction or not:
Have you ever decided to stop beading for a week or so, but only lasted for a couple of days?Yes, but in my case, it is a much shorter time period..
Do you wish people would mind their own business about your beading and stop telling you whatto bead? Yes. I bead what I want to bead when I want to bead it.
Have you ever switched from one kind of beading technique to another in the hope that this would keep you from beading so much? Yes, and I always come back to bead embroidery.
Do you envy people who bead simple projects that only take a few hours to complete? Yes. Sometimes I would like to experience instant gratification, too.
Have you had problems connected with beading during the past year? Yes. I often run out of the beads I’m using, and I have run to the bead shop to get more!
Has your beading ever caused problems at home? Yes. Every once in awhile, I spill a whole box of seed beads on the floor. Then, I have to pick every one of them up! Of course, that’s never successful, and I continue to find those beads around the house throughout the year!
Do you ever buy ‘extra’ beads because you think you won’t have enough? All the time.
Have you missed days of work because of beading? Yes, in fact, several times this year. I will admit it:)
Have you ever felt that your life would be better if you did not bead? Not for a minute!
Well. Looks like there’s a problem, Houston…
If you enjoy doing beadwork, ask yourself the above questions in private. If you have answered yes to three or more, you may have a beading problem, too.
