3 months - up to date!

So I was totally swamped with school and work, etc. and I got a bit behind schedule, but I've managed to catch up, before the end of the year!!!! :-D

So for October, the month my latest niece was born, in honour of her name here's a beautiful moon.

November is represented by the Creative FX colour challenge "Burnished Gold" in one of my favorite motifs - paisley.

And finally December, the month that contains the birthday of my sister-in-law and my elder niece (on the same day). The maple leaves are the translation of my niece's name, and the cherry blossoms are for her beautiful and sweet mother.

Now, onto January... I've started a phoenix, in the hopes that 2009 will rise out of the ashes that were 2008.

Here's hoping that 2009 brings good health, happiness and prosperity to all.
Happy New Year!!!

BJP - September page

Well, it's done.

I must admit I haven't trimmed it yet, but I'm not sure I'm how I'm going to end up mounting my pages yet, so I want to leave extra around until I do.

The original digital photo, prior to beading:

So I decided to only bead the needles from the front two trees, so the beading would completely overwhelm the photo, and for the sake of expediency.

Now, what to do for October...

First ever blog

I've never been a big journal writer. I had a diary when I was little, and I think I wrote 4 entries, so this will be a stretch.

I'm working on several growing experiences this year. As always I'm trying to finish up my Baccalaureate in Art History, all the while working full time as a graphic designer, and feeding my beading obsession. In the vein of the latter, I'm participating in the Creative FX colour challenges from one of my bead suppliers, and will be participating in the 2008 Bead Journal Project.

I'm not sure where I'm going to find the time... :-O
