BJP Announcements + Thanks!

Hi Everyone!

Participants ~ Just a quick note to let you know our group, started only 3 weeks ago with a single post on my blog, now has 154 participants - way, way more than I thought we might get! Heavens... we already have 99 posts on this BJP blog, which is more than I've managed to write on my personal blog in a whole year. Way to go!!!

Deadline ~ I want to remind you all, in case you have friends who are thinking about joining, that the dealine is only 4 days from now... May 30th. I'm planning to be firm about the deadline.

Posting pictures of our bead journal pages ~ I've been following the discussions about showing picturs vs. not showing pictures. I'd like to propose a three month grace period... Let's not show any in-progress or finished project pictures until after September 1st on this blog. You are welcome to show pictures on your own blog or website before that, and you are welcome to make an announcement about it with a link on this blog. That way anybody who wants to see can go take a look; those who don't want to see don't have to look. After September 1, we can all post pictures here if we wish. Does this plan sound OK?

Thanks ~ Some of you have been writing some very complimentary things about me and my books here... BLUSH... I just want to thank you so much and also to thank you for giving your energy, heart and time to this project. We will have a fantastic journey together!

September 1 sounds like a grand plan to me. Thanks Robin - stop that blushing, you deserve it!

Great idea to wait until Sept 1 for showing our journal pieces here. I am a fan of individual work, but have learned over the years that I can glean new ideas from seeing others' work.
Way to go, Robin! You are getting well-deserved kudos for your knowledge, grace and skill! No blushing allowed! You do FABULOUS work!

The deadline works for me and Robin, you're a great inspiration. Please take a bow. =)

That's a good compromise Robin about the bead journal pages. After 5 days camping in Northern Michigan, I have a couple of ideas floating around in my head!!
