Today was a dark and dreary rainy day, a good day to spend time inside in my studio with a cup of tea by my side. I started out the day by cleaning and organizing the studio and then set to work on my May beaded journal page.
My first journal page, entitled “A Garden in my Heart”, was completed in June 2007. When I moved out of my house 4 1/2 years ago and into my apartment, I had to give up my physical garden but it’s wonderful memory always remained in my heart, forever a part of me. Now that I live in a house again with a beautiful garden, I am able to open my heart to my new garden and let my flowers take root here. So, this is what my May page symbolizes. It’s not quite done yet. I have the next couple of days off from work and I hope to finish it by this weekend. Then I will just need to create a November page. My original idea was to create a page in memory of my beloved greyhound, Buddy. He passed away in August of 2001 so I feel it’s right that I create his page during the month of the 7th anniversary of his death. He was a loyal and lovable companion and I still miss him everyday.
Your beaded page is lovely. Thank you so much for the note on my blog and I will let you know when I am back in the blogosphere.
Thanks! Take care, Lynn!
I can’t think of a better way to spend a rain dreary day than working with such bright and gorgeous colors on so wonderful a BJP page!

Thanks Kathy! Yes, it definitely lifted my mood! 🙂
Oh Karen.. it’s turned out just beautiful. I can really see the door open and the abundance of flowers flowing out just like you had pictured… J
Thanks Judy! I’m happy that I was able to manifest the image I had in my mind!
