I have started

Hi all,
I have posted my progress on my blog and written about the Bead Journal Project so others will know more about it. Here is what I said about my progress so far. You can see a pic on my blog. maryhardingjewelrybeadblog.blogspot.com
So here I am into the Bead Journal Project. I have decided to feature at least one of my handmade ceramic beads on each page and have begun with a square raku bead that I really like. So far it is going well. I chose a moleskin burgundy fabric that I have fused to a light weight pelon and that seems to be working. My page size is 4 1/4 x 6 inches. So far I am really enjoying the process and I am working on two peyote stitch necklaces with my ceramic beads, simultaneously. I have already met a fellow beader who is also interested in putting handmade beads in her journal, Andrea Blum. Thank you Andrea for choosing some of my handmade ceramic beads.

I think it is a great idea to put one of your beautiful beads on each page, Mary! They are so amazing and I am very excited to put them on one of my journal pages as well. Andrea

seems like featuring your handmade beads would be an integral part of the "journal" aspect of this process. They are so beautiful.
