This one was tough....

I finally completed July after being unable to bead for a few weeks. I am so glad it is done and I can move onto August. I am really hoping this one is a bit easier and gentler. When I started this I never thought that much about how much of a journal each page would truly be, but it is amazing the thoughts, feelings, emotions, etc. it brings up as I work my way through the month. Has anyone else been having this experience?

If you want to check out my last page or extended ramblings lol, you can find it here. July Page.

I've definitely been avoiding starting my August page because of the feelings my thoughts about it have already stirred up. I've considered doing something totally different, but that wouldn't really resolve the issues that August brings up for me, and I'd still have to deal with them next August. Meanwhile, I keep procrastinating...Susan

I agree, beading, and especially through the BJP project, brings me a lot of "strange" thoughts and emotions. I use it as a meditation and healing process.

Being naturally more at ease with words and dreams, it is really good for me to explore something that goes through my fingers, and rebellious threads, beads and fabrics. However some nights I can't sleep, thinking of my next piece :)

I'm having a tough time finishing my July page. There's not much left to do really; the direction it took just surprised me so much I haven't gotten over the shock I guess. And what's left to do isn't going to be "fun" necessarily...
