**?????** Important Question **?????**

Fact #1 ~ We have several dedicated women who have been doing their BJP pages faithfully, but unofficially (because they didn't know about the project until after the deadline).

Fact #2 ~ We've just been doing a survey of member participation, and have learned that several members have had to drop out of the project.

Question ~ What do you think about the idea of allowing the unofficial members to take the place of the drop outs????? Their status would change to "official" and they could post to our blog and join our Flickr group. Also, they would be able to exhibit/publish their work with us if/when such an opportunity arises.

How do you vote on this one?????

I agree! The more the merrier. Can't wait to see what our 'unofficial' sisters/brothers have been doing.

I think this is a great idea. I don't want people to miss out just because they didn't make the deadline. And I always want to see more beaded work!

I am also in favour of including those who may have missed the official deadline but have been unofficially keeping up with their beaded journals. I can think of two women right now (Cindy and Dee) that are making amazing beaded pieces and I enjoy reading their blogs very much.

Yes, yes, yes, by all means. We are learning from each other and I would guess they have much to offer our group.
