    Definitely new beadwork this spring and about 3 new sets of ribbonwork(get ready, Diane!)
    I had the opportunity to travel alot this past summer,and I will probably do so again this summer because my girls got a chance to dance all over: Ft. Hall, Rocky Boy, Ft. Totten,Shakopee,Prairie Island, St. Croix, LIttle Shell and we want to hit some different pow wows too. They did really well in their dancing and made alot of new friends all over. At times, they were the only southern dancers there, and still did well.
    but for myself, I need an overhaul on my outfits. I am ready to give my stuff to my girls and get all new for the spring, head to toe. No rhinestones, just cuts. No taffeta or sparkle satin, all bridal satin and broadcloth.
    I want to hit a few home pow wows, but mostly stick around up north for the majority of the summer and come back home in the fall and get ready for school and all of that boring stuff.
    Want to go to Cherokee for the 4th. I have been saying that and have never been yet. Hopefully, my family will feel sorry for me this time and we will go out there instead of Thunderbird. If I am going to sweat to death, I would rather be in North Carolina. Never been out there, want to give it a try.
    I am thankful for my grandparents, my parents, my brothers, my aunties and uncles, my children, my companion and all of those who influenced me to be strong and proud of being who I am and where I come from. Knowledge is power

      Last year I wanted to bead a whole new outfit for myself. However, that didn't happen. Last year I mainly beaded for my niece, and am doing it again this year.

      I beaded for some people last year, but now I think I am going to stick with beading for my immediate family now because I get quite a few requests. I hate having to turn them down, but I get so many that I have no choice. Plus, I hate putting a time limit on when I will be able to finish. :(

      Also, I didn't get to go to many pow-wows like I wanted. I have a job where I have to work some weekends, so it's a bummer. Hopefully this year I will able to go to some pow-wows. That'll be neat.

                How many miles have you traveled for PWs this year?
                by **jdazmum**
                We put 60 thousand miles on our new truck this past year. That includes work, traveling home to Arizona and powwows. Isn't that crazy or what?
