A Year in Beads

It's finished! I put the last stitches on my BJP piece for May a few days ago, photographed Oct. - May yesterday, and my sweet hubby loaded everything onto my website today. My full year's worth of pages can now be seen at www.lisabinkley.com under the gallery titled "one year, one leaf, one meditation." This has been such a great process for me; and I know it has been for many others as well. Robin, thank you so much for coming up with the idea and for all you've done to make this such a great process.
I think it's going to feel a bit strange to start working on something that doesn't have a big beaded cottonwood leaf in the middle. But my head is already swimming with ideas for future beadwork. I'll keep checking in on the 2008 BJP, and I hope it's a great process for everyone involved.
If any of you are in the Madison, WI are over the summer, feel free to stop by the Overture Center for the Arts on State St. All 12 of my BJP pieces will be in a four-person show at the center in the 1st floor gallery (from June 21 - Sept. 14). If you're in town on June 27th, be sure to stop by and say hi at our opening reception that evening.
Best wishes and happy beading to everyone in the BJP. Lisa B.

I so enjoyed your leaf designs this past year. Wish I could see them in person at your exhibit . . .

Lisa, I'd like to see your work in person and meet another BJPer. Here's hoping that I can get to the opening!
