August Update

I am having too much fun with this. I'm sure it must be illegal, immoral or fattening. With my luck it's all three. LOL. As you can see I made some progress this weekend. Took my oldest grandson to the coast and we kicked back, relaxed and had fun with each other. He's 17 and very artistic himself. He's even been known to bead a few things and worked in our LBS last summer. Haven't found the right name for this page yet. At least it's still speaking to me.

August start

I know, I know, July is not over yet. Can't help it. I have so many ideas running around in my head that I just have to get them beaded. LOL This page is done with most of the beads in our Bead Society challenge for this year. I wanted to do something in these colors anyway. This page will be displayed at our County Fair in October as part of our challenge. 75% of it must be from beads in the kit. It's only about a third finished.

July- "Swinging Summer"

Finished it this weekend. So many of you guessed correctly. After all the trauma in June, It was pure pleasure to do this page. Wish I was swinging here. Had a great weekend at the coast. Took a class, bought too many beads, and just enjoyed myself.

July page for BJP

This is an update on my July page. I still have a few key elemnts to add. This is really outside the box for me, but it's been a fun experience. Almost like painting with beads. Outside of a few flowers, it's done in 15's. The concept has grown since I first pictured it. Can anyone guess where I'm going with this?

I just posted my start on my July page on my blog: It's very unusual for me to start a project with a specific picture in mind. I guess that's what this project is all about-stretching ourselves. I'll update next week.

BJP July start

Told you this one would be different for me. This picture just wouldn't leave my head so I guess I was meant to do it. Have lots to do on it yet. I keep thinking of new things to add.

It just seems to express how I feel right now. I'll be working on it hard the next two weekends at the coast. My girlfriend and I are taking a class at Kandra's this weekend. Should be fun. Next weekend I am taking my oldest grandson (17) to the coast as part of his graduation present. He's the one most like me (poor boy), and we always have a good time together. We'll probably hit every bookstore we can find.

"Rage" is done

My June page for Bead Journal Project is done. This has been a learning experience for me. I used this page as some serious therapy to rid myself of some anger and frustration. I wasn't sure it would work, but it did. These colors are an unusual selection for me, but they seemed to express my feelings. Who knows what next month will bring.
