  • *Working All Day*

    How many jinglers here work a full time job, then you want your new dress and beadwork to get done for the new powwow season? You don't have all the time you'd like to get things done. Do you stay up late sewing and beading during the week, then have to get up for work the next day?

    I do. :(

    And I'm picky about who helps me because you want things done a certain way only you can do. lol. Working all day and then sewing at nights play havoc on my poor back. Seems I can sew for an hour now, as opposed to sewing nearly all night, I have to stop and take breaks a lot. *ouch*

    I did that for my first set of beadwork and dresses. I would bead/sew in the evenings and all weekend when not working to get it done for a specific pow wow.

    With my upcoming arrival, I doubt that I will have time to spend hours beading and sewing like I did. Good thing I have my older sister Debra for that. She is awesome and I totally trust her judgement when it comes to making my stuff. I get the feeling that I will be relying on her alot more.

      I did that and my son was a little over a year but I really wanted to have new beadwork. I stayed up tons of nights and any other time I could just to lay more beads down. Now w/two I don't know how I'm going to finish anything...

      I'll be your cheerleader though... YOU CAN DO IT!! GO ojibwaysweetie GO!!! :)

        Aren't sisters awesome?! I have one sister who will come to my rescue at times. She has a lot of her own sewing and beading on the go, but makes the time to help out.

                        Beadwork: Lifestyle or Chore?
                        by Wojapi4Me
                        I've been talking with some people lately about beadwork and how it fits into their lives. I know some people really view beadwork as a chore or a necessity that they have to do to pow wow, but to me its just a part of my life. I love doing beadwork, and usually bead about 4 hours a night. I always...

                        I just got back from a trip to Oklahoma where I had a wonderful conversation with a Kiowa man and a Pawnee man about fancy dance and its hitory and also its future.

                        Hi there. I'm 26 years old, I have a little munchkin daughter that will be 2 in September. This past weekend, she begged me to take her out into the arena with the other kids to dance. I did. I felt bad because she wanted to do this on her own... I owe her an outfit...
