B-BHOP sub-group proposal

I'd like to propose a new subgroup - the B-BHOP's - Busy Beaders Honoring Our Process.

  • We have no guilt that we are busy living our lives
  • We bead when we can and when we have energy
  • We remember that we joined this just for the fun and learning
  • We contribute to the world of beading with our wonderful work, whenever it is completed
  • We do not need to apologize for anything
  • We honor our artistic self and process by accepting its pace
  • We love and support ourselves and each other
  • This is just for us. This is our place and our time to let it all hang out, to let ourselves be carried away in the moment, to let go of judgments and interpretation and planning, to go deeper than words! (from Robin A.)

Anyone care to join me? Any additions to my list of credos?

I have nothing to add, you did a fine job with the objectives!

Aurora said...

great! one thing about being in this group for me--is the reminder to keep going, but I long ago gave up trying to keep up with anyone else...;-)
no guilt

Keeping up is not the name of the game.Sometimes we work fast and sometimes we don't.You bet I'll sign up for this.
Speaking as one of the world's greatest procrastinators, we need more groups like this. The support is incredible as is the beadwork.

Love it! My favorite, which I will write in my journal tomorrow -
"We honour our artistic self and process by accepting its pace"
Thanks Vicki

Okay, but I'm going to change one little think. I will apologize when I'm wrong about something, but I won't apologize for not getting my beads done 'on time.'

What about a logo?

I'm in, just sign my name on the dotted line you have my permission becausemy life is so busy and I haven't got the energy to do it myself and because I'm beading to relax I won't apologize for not signing myself up. Hum! I'm in! LOL

A place to bead with no pressure! Is that heaven or what? I'm in! Actually, I think that could be just what Robin had in mind with her "just sew a bead down, pick another one and sew it down" stuff. I am certainly enjoying seeing everyone's work and it really doesn't make me want to hurry or change what I do. I'd say that's because this is a wonderful group of sharing, caring people.

This is such a wonderful affirmation of the spirit of BJP! Thanks Vicki!!!

At the bottom of our blog, I wrote: "This is just for us. This is our place and our time to let it all hang out, to let ourselves be carried away in the moment, to let go of judgments and interpretation and planning, to go deeper than words!" Perhaps this could be added to the B-BHOP? I especially like the goal of going deeper than words.
