Here are both my March and April pieces. I really had finished my March journal piece in March, but we were in Panama and I didn't have a scanner hooked up. So, I had to wait until we returned, earlier this month. Then, I waited until I finished April's entry, waited a further week, and finally scanned both pieces. Yeah!!!! So, please go to my website, MermaidsJewelz , to view them. Click on the photo showing the month for the description of each.
This is such fun.

So, I'm picking right back up where I left off and I hope that's okay. If you'd like to visit, I'd love for you to swing by. Now that I can breathe...I look forward to visiting you again also. ~Lisa

Oh my, oh my, oh my. It is the middle of April and I'm just finishing March. I love March so much. It is a time of change and infinite possibility. The red-winged blackbirds return to our pond and they are the theme for me this month. I love their feistiness, their raspy song and their energy! I'm always looking for more energy, especially as I begin a new career and find my brain having to study, learn and take tests. (Needless to say, my college age son only laughs when I complain!)
I'm going to start April this weekend and hope to finish on time. Please take a look March's piece and the first 7 pieces together here . I'm so happy I signed on to this project and grateful from everything I have learned from it. Thank you Robin!

Visual Journaling with Beads, Fibers, Threads and Fabric
View over 200 beaded journal pieces by 42 artists participating in the 2007-08 Bead Journal Project! Compelling and inspirational, this unique beadwork tells stories, reveals emotions and follows important events in the lives of the artists who create a visual journal each month during the year-long project. In this presentation, you will see how the first year of the BJP developed into quite an amazing body of art!
I also posted a progress report for my April BJP, which has some BIG challenges for me!

I've got a 'side project' going, as well. While in Europe, I've made a deal with an amazing Barcelona artist, Fatima Tocornal, to exchange a piece of art. We agreed to make a new piece based upon what we found inspiring of each other's personality. I've begun on a 'fallen woman' just for her - inspired by her work. I'm really excited to have one of her pieces in my collection! So... I'll be posting the progress on that piece also, soo!
Keep Beading, All!

When Michelle asked me to write an article, I jumped at the chance. My only regret was that I couldn't use everyone's work... She asked me to choose from a variety of themes. What a whirl... All the work is so fabulous... so I sort of did a "pin the tail on the donkey" kind of thing... spun around and pointed...
