Yes, its true, I am no longer with Interweave–not full time, anyway. Too many friends there to say I'm not part of the "family."
But there were too many other paths I was jonesing to travel. Though being the BD online editor was jammed with excitement, I missed having time to make own stuff, set my own pace, as well as many other things I had no time for during my tenure as a full-time editor.
So, back to being a maker! Woohoo! Busier than ever now, I have two new DoodleBeads DVDs in the works, tons of new jewelry designs sparkling on my work tables that I hope may be worthy to be in Beadwork and other magazines and books, and will be teaching at Bead Fest in Philly in August, as well as (hopefully) Texas in October and Santa Fe in March. I may even find my way to Tucson in February, too.
Watch for my new web site with a gallery of my work (including this Steampunk herringbone cuff!), kits and a shop, and a more detailed calendar of my workshops and travels: www.leslierogalski.com.
I may sneak in a video or two as well. ;-) So stay tuned, and friend me on Facebook.
Send me an email to be on my mailing list at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure to welcome the new editor of BD--Kristal Wick is a dynamo!
