So let's just try this blogging thing out!
It is my first attempt so please bear with me my friends and readers!
I want to start just by telling you a little about me; who I am, what I do and why I'm here (in the blogging sense, not the big picture kinda way).
So... I am Emma Dilemma. It is somewhat debated (mostly between my father and I) about the origins of my name. I think it was a babysitter who gave me the name but he seems to remember my Uncle Greg using it first. Regardless, it happened at about the age of 5 and has stuck this long.
I have 2 art school diplomas, an 11 year old son and a 5 year long marriage. I teach children art and spend all of my spare time (and yes after all of that there is still some!) beading.
Beads have been an obsession of mine since I was a darling young thing. Rolling them between my fingers, making friendship pins in the 80's, moving on to long strings of 'hippie' beads while in high school and then rediscovering them, with a renewed passion over the last few years and combining them with my now well tuned, art school knowledge of colour and my own particular sense.
I have recently opened my own online shop,experienced a tiny bit of success with it and a huge pile of pride.
