Double Infinity - August is done - What a trip!

Okay, i know i posted an almost finished copy awhile back, but now it's done and i've added it to Flickr at

For those who were wondering, the center is a pressed celluloid button which i fell in love with.

I must say i am really touched to have been involved in this project. I have definately learned to trust my creativity. When i look at those 12 4x4 squares on my wall, i am amazed at how i transformed some tiny glass beads into glimpses of my soul.

I'm thinking of beading button covers next time. You'll just have to wait and see! Bye for now...

Registration for next year

The correct date for registration for next year is:

Promoting the Bead Journal Project for Year 3

Last year we found that the best way to get the word out about the bjp was to mention it on your blog. Whether you're continuing or not, if you can let readers of your blog know that the project is continuing, it will be greatly appreciated.

Important info:

The Bead Journal Project starts in January, 2010.

Registration starts October 15, 2009 at

No experience is necessary! The goal is to create one visual journal piece a month for a year that includes beads.

Participants work can be seen at

Thanks for all your support!!!

That Makes it a Year!!

I'm finished!!
I'm finished!!!
The last month's bead journal page is another departure from my regular 'reproducing my sketchbook' approach. Instead, I decided to reproduce a work by yet another artist in my family in beads.
SO... feel free to click here, or on my sneak peek to the left and check it all out! The year is COMPLETE!!

Hmmmm... now to think about next year....

August Finished

Well, all the beading is done....I've still got the last 7 pages to back and add sleeves to, but there's lots of time for that since we won't be starting next year until next year!
It's sure been a great pleasure meeting all the "new" participants in this years BJP and I hope to see you all (and a bunch more) in january!
Thanks for the inspiration!'s the link to my blog with a photo of the whole piece which I'm calling, Goodbye/Hello to Turtle Island.

August almost done - Double Infinity

I said i was going to make a doozy for the last month, and i think i've accomplished that! It's not quite done as i ran out of the 4mm pf cunes and the clear blue 6's. But don't despair - more are on the way! Not knowing how long it will take to get them, I decided to post a picture here of it 'almost done'. It is a mandella of sorts as the year has come full circle once again. Hope you like it.
