Time Is SO Catching Up With Me!

Here it is, August 30, only one more day until 2008-2009 BJP officially begins.  I am nowhere near finishing up 2007...  and I'm realizing that that doesn't really matter so much.  This has been a wonderful, sanity-keeping experience for me, having my BJP project to come back to after things went haywire, which they did on a regular basis this last year.  I can confidently say that I wouldn't have come through nearly as well as I have without the beadwork and all of you to encourage and inspire me.  At this point I have 6 and 5/6th pages done, just a bit over half of the 12 I'd hoped to have.  And my solution is to invoke my Artistic License and, well, cheat and declare that each page will represent 2 months.  :- D  Oh, I'll still be working on 2007-2008 as I go along,  but right now I can have that (somewhat false) sense of achievement and completion. Page 7 will  be finished up by tomorrow, and then I will start 2008-2009.  And I still haven't decided on size, theme (if any), or anything.  I can't wait to find out what I'll come up with!

Bless your heart, Lois! I so loved the pieces you made for the 2007 BJP and can't wait to see what you come up with for the 2008 BJP . . .

Keep on keeping on, Lois. Glad you are joining us again. Beading is wonderful in that it takes you away from the real world when you most need it to.
