May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Basket Weaving, Basket Making, Candle Holder

Today was a good day. I am trying to put weaving as a priority on my schedule and I did get a basket woven! It is a cute little market basket with a swing handle. I made it out of some space died pastel reed and some pink stakes. It was nice to complete a basket from start to finish. I'll swap out this picture for it when I get a picture taken of it. I sent my check of $30.00 for the Church craft bazaar so I will have a craft space. I plan to sell my baskets as well as get some classes lined up to teach. I've never done a craft show before so I have hopes of making $200 and scheduling 5 classes to teach. I wonder if I've set my goal too high or too low. Well, if I achieve the $200 and the 5 classes I'll be super excited. If I don't I'll be disappointed. I've already been having feelings regarding fear of failure. Fear of failure has stopped me countless times for starting my own business. I have to be in charge and not let fear stop me this time!
