Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night!

Another Bead Journal Page

... and here's the latest Bead Journal Page that I started months ago and just now finished ... now I'm "only" two months behind schedule!

(October, 2007) - She Waits

She Waits, side view. This page is very dimensional ... actually "stuffed" inside with batting.

Painted Z-Coils

I spent a couple of days painting my beloved Z-Coil shoes to wear to the Festival Hill Gay Men's Chorus Christmas Concert in Round Top yesterday, then ended up with The Dreaded Migraine, and didn't get to go. So here are my shoes, since I didn't get to wear them yesterday ;^)

Bead Journal Project

I thought I'd catch up on posting some photos of my Bead Journal pages that I've made for Robin Atkins' Bead Journal Project which she started back in June of this year. It's a year-long project, with a "page" per month. I've chosen to make my pages post-card size (4x6"), and here's what I've completed so far.

(June, 2007) Desert Tortoise - painted background, lightly beaded.

(July, 2007) Eye of the Beholder - using a painted background and a taxidermy eye.
(subtitled The Migraine.)

(August, 2007) WWND? (What Would Nancy Do?) - A reference to my friend Nancy Dickey.

(September, 2007) The Lizard Constellation - Painted background, with beaded button.

I'll post my October piece in the next day or two.
