I've been slowly working away on the first piece of my bead journal. I had a change of heart on the shape and am going with a rectangle about the size of a credit card. It just came to me one night and I liked that I could have the pieces turned one way or the other. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten around to taking any pictures yet.
But I wanted to post some pictures of my Birthday bag. J.P. gave me this for my birthday years ago. I beaded the front piece about 6 years ago and it has hug on my studio wall since then.
