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.

The bag was made by our good friend and neighbor Jerry and has a long braided strap.

The bead work is done on Lacey's Stiff Stuff and then sewn on to the front.

 The bag hangs on the wall next to my table. I keep notes and other ephemera I have collected over the years, just stuff I want to remember from time to time.
