2007-2008 Bead Journal Project

The day after I turned 49, June 1st I started my first BJP piece and today May 31st I have achieved 50! and am posting my BJP journey! Achieved because it hasn't been the easiest year of my life 2 of my beloved, treasured and cherished pups went to the Rainbow Bridge. My Dad passed December 8th and my Mama passed February 25th....I miss them all. Several of my pieces I worked on while tending to my parents. Beads are my therapy, they keep me sane...well sane as I'm ever going to be! It worked out that the window here in my bead nest is 72" wide, divide that by 12 and voile' I have a valance! here are June, July & August:

Wowie, how cool to get to see all of your pieces at one time. They are fab. I really want to see a pic of the entire valance!

Cyn,
I know what a hard year you have had. To see what you have still accomplished is inspiring. They are stunning and will make a great valance.

Happy Birthday, Cyn! How neat to find a birthday buddy on the BJP -- it's my birthday, too.

Love your beaded pieces -- they are so unique and extremely well done.

Super stuff Cyn, I love your idea - what a perfect way to display your work & as usual it is amazing like you

Happy Birthday dear friend, this past year has been a tough one for sure

These are amazing, Cyn! I love them all, but particularly Dec, Jan, Feb and March. It almost seems that January's angel is looking after your Mama and Dad. And there you are in May, celebrating your birthday month. Ok, maybe I'm being too presumptive, but it's almost impossible not to put stories to these wonderful beings. I love the triangle shape - one that can represent goals, dreams and ideals. I also love that you put the hangers on them and agree with Viv that I'd like to see a picture of your valance. Great idea! Congrats on finishing and happy 50... may it be a wonderful year for you!

It's amazing how many of us turned 50 during this BJP experience. Like everyone else I find your pages extremely inspiring and would love to see them hanging as a group.
