Hello, dear Fellow Beading-Journalists, and special greetings to Robin, the woman who kicked all this off and holds the beading strings in her hands.
Interesting community – interesting experiment! Last year, I did initially register, but dropped out again almost immediately. For several reasons, I just couldn't bring myself to taking part in the project. But this year – well, circumstances have not changed, but my attitude has, and so I am taking the plunge. I very much wonder what will happen and develop during the coming twelve months, inside and out.
Have I got a concept for my BJP pieces? Yes, I do. My little grey cells are teeming with construction plans, by and by the details are forming before my mind's eye. Hope the practical side will follow suit. The final mounting of the twelve „pages“ will not present a problem: I have an electric cable to fill, so to say – a cable running beneath my kitchen ceiling from the socket in the middle of the ceiling to the lamp hanging over the table. So, after twelve months, if all goes well, twelve ... hmmms will dangle from that boring, naked cable. I don't do a lot of cooking, so cooking fumes won't spoil them. The month of creation of the individual pages will in each case be identifiable by an accompanying text attached to them. No more for now.
Just a short introduction to my person: I was born in a town that was at the time a German town, but is now situated in Poland (if you attended history lessons, you can now roughly estimate my age). I have always enjoyed doing things with my hands, with the exception of drawing and painting. Eighteen years of my life I have lived as a foreigner in several places, i.e. places outside Germany. At present, I am living in a very pleasant town that I love, but refuse to say that I have settled down for good. This may be so, but I always need the back door wide open.
Alright, let's go, get together, learn new things and have fun!
