This is what I have done so far on my June page. This past month or so has brought many frustrations to me. Rather than explode from trying to keep them all inside, I decided to express them in colors I rarely use. The title "Rage" says it all.
I look forward to working on the pages for the rest of the year.

Soon I will be escaping to the Central California coast. Yea! My 17 year old grandson will be going with me. It's a part of his graduation gift. I used to take him there when he was small. I know we'll have a great time. I really need to get away for a while. Both work and life in general have not been kind recently. I find myself angry and frustrated much of the time. Sometimes the pressure gets to be too much. So, instead of whining about it anymore, I'm going to do something constructive. My June page for Bead Journal Project is going to express all the rage I can put into it. I'm not sure why this is so important to me right now, but it seems to be the right thing to do. I don't know that the rest of my pages will follow this theme, but maybe I'll just express the emotions I'm feeling each month. Maybe not. My page is about half done. I'll post as soon as it's finished. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy the ocean waves.

This is a piece I've been working on for a couple of months now. The inspiration was the beautiful face by RAMA. She made me think of Arabian nights and jewels. It was fun trying new techniques and is by far the most extensive thing I've done in bead embroidery. I'll post a better picture when I get it framed.
