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,

Happy New Year!

Happy 2010 Everyone!

Dear Friends,

We are into a new year today. I've been reading about some wonderful blog posts about starting fresh and starting over and bettering oneself through resolutions, goals and commitments. Some of the posts have been really beautiful and inspiring. It is so easy for me to say, "I want to do that resolution too!" As much as I want to make myself an all around better person, I'm sticking with the two resolutions I told you about. I am going to menu plan faithfully throughout 2010 and hopefully it will become a habit to carry me on throughout life. I've been thinking about menu planning seriously for a couple of months now and I'm so hopeful to be consistently successful at it. I've written about menu planning HERE, HERE, and HERE. I'm also going to listen to the Daily Audio Bible that I mentioned HERE a few days ago.

Hopefully by keeping my list short and sweet I will be successful with these two things. One other thing to mention about resolutions that I read about is to focus on something you are really passionate about and that will help you be more successful in keeping your resolutions.

I've also read something several years ago that stuck with me. It was an article about starting over with making good decisions in life, for instance healthy eating. It said that there are 31, 556,926 seconds in a year. You can start over or start fresh during any one of those seconds. If you eat junk food and have sworn off junk food, you can start over right this very second. You don't need to wait until tomorrow, or wait until Monday or wait until January 1st. You can start over right now, this second. That is just a statement that really struck a chord with me and I've always tried to remember it.

So I'm sending all of you wishes for good health, peace and joy for 2010.

With love and blessings,
