A busy weekend

Hi all. I have an art room. I love it down there but I don't bead there. I have tried but I can bead for hours and then I've gotten myself away from the family too much. So here is the family room and my corner of the couch where I bead. I do a lot of work here and my family put up with it! Here is a good picture of Springer, who was so curious about what I was doing - but more because I was in the kitchen and he was hopeful!

In other news, I have cut the material for several of my Beaded Journal Project. I had tried a 4x4 variety, but that was really too small so I have upgraded to 6x6. These are some of the materials I want to work with, the first one being the lime green with the swirls. It's such a great spring colour!
The BJP is a new project started by Robin Atkins and I am so happy to be part of it! If you want to join, you need only visit Robin's blog, read the rules and sign up before the end of May.

These last two pictures are of a 4x4 page that I made for a monthly swap. I love doing mixed media and I rarely show what I have made on this blog - mostly because I just don't take pictures of it! So I thought I would, just to show you all a bit more of what I do.

One more thing. I am working a project that has been inspired by a topic over on Bead Art on Delphi Forums. It's called "Through the Looking Glass." I can't show you pictures because it is going to a vote but as soon as that is all done, I'll post pictures of it. It has been a fun and unique project that has enabled me to raid my stash of beads and use some of the more unique ones! I'm really happy with the way it has turned out - it is almost finished. Then I'll take pictures, enter it in the contest and when the contest is over, I'll post pictures.
Cheers, Denise

hi denise...I really like the fabrics you have for the bjp....and your beading space looks cosy! I like to bead all over the house and out on the sun porch, but have to cover stuff when I'm done as we have a new family member (6 mo. old kitten) and she's not "bead-trained" just yet, LOL!
