I'm new to the BJP this year and am looking forward to it. 2008-09 has many personal challenges ahead for me and I'm hoping to let the bead journal help me sort it out. I'm from South Lyon Michigan, near Ann Arbor, and am mainly a glass beadmaker, but I'm drawn in many different directions...seed beads, bead embroidery, PMC, glass fusing....etc.
I have a shape and symbol plan for the year, and will let the beads and experiences guide me. Hats off to all of you have participated before and returned, and a grateful thanks to those who make this project possible.
