I joined this group towards the end of May. I thought it would be a great way to stretch me in all kinds of creative (and not so creative as I've found) ways. Btw, Robin Atkins started the whole project. She's been an inspiration of mine since I bought her book a couple of years ago. Here is what it's all about:
"About the 2007 Bead Journal Project beadjournalproject.blogspot.co…
We are 240 women and 1 man who are dedicated and committed to creating 12 bead journal pages, one per month, for a year, starting June 1, 2007. We live in 13 different countries, including 37 states in the USA. Our primary goal during this process, is to stretch our creative and technical limits. The BJP is all about visual journaling using any media and techniques, as long as it includes beading."
I've recently had elbow surgery (boooo) and haven't really been able to bead until about last week. I began a 4x4 piece and my not so creative thinking head took over and I hated it. So I ripped it out and am starting the June page over. So the not so creative has limited me far more than the not being able to hold a needle in my dominant hand!
I'll be posting pics soon. But for now, get your butt going is my mantra. Not much time before June is over and gone!
