I am so proud that I finished my commitment to myself with these BJPs as I have struggled with starting my third series before finishing either of the first two years of BJPs! But now, one year is complete ... onto my Portraits series for 2008 BJP series .....

Actually, Christy finished her BJP pieces for this year quite a while ago and is now working on the current year's BJP. Finally, I got around to photographing her last four pieces and put them on my blog, here.
Christy and I worked together to prepare her 12 pieces for framing. Thinking our process might be useful to others in the BJP, I wrote a tutorial about how to do it. It's the second half of the post (here.)
Great work, Christy!!!!! Thanks for allowing me to share it with the group!

In this presentation, you will see the best of the best!

Morwyn, I'm excited to see that your BJP '07 piece will be in the Beaded Book exhibition. Congratulations! Our group from two years ago will be well represented. I've got a new (post BJP) piece that is also in the show. It's called "Metaphorically Speaking" and it's a beaded cigar box inspired by Joseph Campbell's "The Power of Myth" (and Mary Oliver's book of poetry "House of Light"). I wish I could see the show in person but will look forward to seeing it in print in the June/July issue of Beadwork. Are there other BJP'ers in the show?

I took one month away to bead a pair of ballet slippers for an exhibition. Now, I'm proud to say that I finished my December BJP and have started my January BJP. I hope to catch up before the month of March. In the mean time, here is my Dec. page.

Many, many thanks to all the 07-08 BJP gang and especially Robin, who shoved us all down this rabbit hole in the first place., encouraging us to put beads to cloth, expressing ourselves in ways both familiar and strange, stretching our creativity and learning so much together and as individuals. The experience remains one of the richest in rewards - both personal and professional - I've ever known.

I've also posted pictures of pieces by Christy H. who just finished her last piece for the year! You can see them here.
I am so very proud of these two gals (and many others unknown to me) for their perserverance!

Well, I finally finished all of the fire on my Elemental Fire panel. I still have to choose the colors for the inside - it will be green, like the leaf in the center of Elemental Air, but more of a true green as opposed to green-blue or blue-green.
Part of the reason this is going so slow is because I am doing a lot of writing lately. I have written a couple of new poems. I am also taking an Intro to Fiction Writing course online through UNC-Chapel Hill which is a blast - but tons of work.Kassie - The Beading Butterfly
