Bracelets and April BJP

I’m so excited to announce that my bracelets have been posted to my website! You may view them here.

I’ve been diligently working on my April journal page. It represents my moving and settling in to my new home journey. As the garden has been blooming in bright colors, I decided to use a vibrant color palette to reflect that and my blooming happiness. I’m hoping to finish it this week.

My camera renders oranges and reds so intensely that I had to really tone down this photo quite a bit in Photoshop. It still appears like the background color is overtaking the colors of my beadwork. I don’t know how I feel about the empty part in the middle of my heart. I’m thinking of filling it up with something, possibly pearls. I may leave it empty though to represent an open heart which I aspire to have. What do you think?

I’m starting to meditate about my May page. I want it to represent a link to my very first page from last year called “The Garden in my Heart”. Now that I have a physical garden once again, there will be a connection with that. I’m still thinking about it…

    I think I like the design open. As it is now it shows the home is “filled” with your heart and yet there is always space for more love.

    Karen, your bracelets are gorgeous ! The colors and styles are so varied, each one is a work of art. You did a great job with the photography…speaking of photography, I just received my NikonD40 yesterday ! It’s exciting but overwhelming at the same time I’ve got a lot to learn, but hopefully will start to get some good shots of my work soon….

    Thanks Kathi for your feedback about that. I think I’m leaning towards keeping that space open, too.

    Thanks so much, Dora. Have loads of fun with your new camera! Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions about the D40.
