I left off beading for a couple of years. I worked and finished my masters and began working full time. I love working and putting my kids through college. I am very glad to be beading again. It's a highlight to my day. I'm almost 3/4th done on my June page. I am trying to complete something to enter the Dairy Barn's Bead International. So, the BJP is a great place to meet new bead friends. I love viewing everyone's work.

My theme for my journal is windows. I see this project as an open window to new skills, ways of thinking....I find myself wanting to use my tried and true techniques and it's an effort to learn new stitches. I have the embroidery book by Robin and I found another book that is more of a textbook on stitches. So, I feel all thumbs like when I first started beading and I have a sense of discovery...I am climbing through an open window!

Starting the Bead Journal feels like a big stretch. I think writing is a good outlet or a window into the soul. I think of beading as "catching the moment" or catching my moments.
I beaded above hat with the idea of "cathcing the moment' and there are many "moments" interconnected in the hat
One of my goals with the Bead Journal Project is to add other elements with my beadwork and this is will be a totally new effort.
