Got a Little Sidetracked, but That's a GOOD Thing...
I fell heir to a very battered but perfectly working iPod. I've been spending time figuring out how it works (yay for downloadable manuals) and transferring lots and lots of music onto it. I have about 2,500 songs and spoken word items on it, and have used up maybe 1/16th of its capacity. It's been worth the time, because now I have many old favorites and new favorites close at hand and can work along to a fine supply of music that I like. I'm back working on January now, though, and enjoying it much. Having the music device has made the direction change a little, in ways I really like.
Just realized people are actually reading my blog! I have answered your kind comments there, finally, and I will pay more attention now.
A step by step tutorial on how to set up your own blog can be found here.
About the Bead Journal Project
The brain child of Robin Atkins, the first Bead Journal Project, which began in June of 2007, included 241 women and 1 man who were dedicated and committed to creating 12 bead journal pages, one per month, for a year.
The BJP is all about visual journaling using any media and techniques, providing it includes some beading. We are free to structure our bead journal pages any way we want, as long as all 12 are the same size.
The current years' Bead Journal Project runs from September, 2008 through August, 2009. This blog is a means by which we may support each other in process, techniques and design. Participants (many with links to their personal blogs or websites) are listed below.
Due to the limitations of blogger.com which places a limit of 100 authors per blog, there are three Bead Journal Project blogs this year. Be sure and visit all of them.
