Hi folks,

It's OVER?

Well I just don't know what to say! I had such good intentions when I signed up, I even drafted up my actual postcard images AND did the writeups for each of the months too! It did not pan out for me except for the September and October postcard tops that I did finish off. I do intend to complete this project one of these days as I think each month portrays something that is a deep part of myself and will be uplifting and fun for me to do - when - who knows though.

I just want to say that I've added Susan's blurb for the 2010 year and hope that some of my friends may sign up. Sadly I will not do such this time but who knows maybe again in the future. It has been fun checking on the various blogs and I will check out the main site to see what has transpired this past year! Have fun all!

These are the rest of my pages I made for my granddaughter . She loved her book for graduation. The story is embroidered in her own writing . This concludes my BJ for 2008-09. I've enjoyed the project and I am looking forward to doing the 2009-2010 Beading Journal. Evelyn.

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 1, 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!!!

Almost Finished

I have completed all of my blocks for this challange. I had no idea when I started with a tribute block to my son, that I would lose my husband before the end of the project. My blocks are ready to be put together into a finished wall hanging. I am going to try to get it done very soon.These are photos of them in groups of three. I really enjoyed doing this and loved viewing everyone's work.

July and August

Hello all! I posted July and August, please take a look. Hope everyone is well!
