Bead Journals

Between 2008-09, I participated in the Bead Journal Project founded by Robin Atkins.  It was through this project that I learned I had a story to tell and that I could use my needle to document my life and my experiences.  Without Robin and her Bead Journal Project, I'm not sure I would have ever realized this about myself.   For that I am eternally grateful.

I completed 11 bead journals because 11 is a very special number in my life.  Here are their pictures and links to the original posts that tell their stories and show more detailed photos...

Number 11:  My Symphony

Anyway, Thank you, thank you for sharing your gift with us!!!!!!
