The Beaded Book Competition

Hey, guys - don't know if anyone still stops in here - but I wanted to share an update concerning my beaded journal. I entered it in Beadwork's Beaded Book Competition and I just got the news that it's been selected as a finalist! Now I just have to deal with the trauma of sending off to a bunch of strangers for a few months (insert deep breath here).

Many, many thanks to all the 07-08 BJP gang and especially Robin, who shoved us all down this rabbit hole in the first place., encouraging us to put beads to cloth, expressing ourselves in ways both familiar and strange, stretching our creativity and learning so much together and as individuals. The experience remains one of the richest in rewards - both personal and professional - I've ever known.
However this turns out in the end, I'm already a winner.

I agree with you -- this has been an excellent adventure down the rabbit hole ... even as I scramble to finish & catch up & learn more about beading!
