My last beaded journal page is done

Well, talk about getting down to the wire! With the 2008-09 Beaded Journal Project poised to begin tomorrow, I have completed my last page of the 2007-08 year, my November 2007 page. With my annual jewelry show in November, that whole month is dedicated to preparing for my show. Instead of creating my November page in December then, I was inspired to jump right into my December page at that time. So, November never got done until now. However, I always had what I wanted to create, a tribute page to my greyhound Buddy, in my mind. It was just a matter of getting the fabric paper to put in my printer, updating my printer cartridges and getting started on it.

I’m so glad to be finished with all of my pages. I feel a great sense of accomplishment even though I finished late. Now it is time to turn my sights to the new year and start on my first bracelet!

    karen, i commend you for sticking to the project and completing it – something i always have difficulty in doing. and such a beautiful, lovely page it is – x

    Thanks Nina! Sometimes it was easy sticking to it but a lot of the time it was really hard. I just kept plugging along though, slow but sure. In being a part of something like this, I sure did learn a lot about myself…

    What a wonderful tribute to Buddy. My DIL’s parents also had a greyhound named Buddy. He also has passed over the rainbow bridge. They are wonderful pets.

    Thanks Arline! Bless your DIL’s parents for opening their home and their hearts to one of these magnificent doggies.

    Thanks Ellen for your kind words!

  11. What a wonderful page. My sister has a Buddy ( bichon) and my grandson has a Buddy (named after his great grandpa) who is of mixed origens. Dogs make life extra nice.

    I’m getting there on my last page. I am also starting on my new page for this year. Hopefully I won’t get so behind this year.

    Glad to see you back.

    Thanks Timaree, glad to see you back, too! It sounds like Buddy is a very popular name for a beloved doggie. 🙂

    Good luck with your last page and your first page! I’m hoping not to get so behind either.
