I have joined the Beaded Journal Project for 2010.  Tommy and I had been talking about my doing it and him designing some of the pictures for me to bead.  Now I am using the project as a way to work through my grief and remember all the wonderful memories we made together.  I had several images chosen to work for different months depending on what happened within that month..for example our wedding anniversary in April or his birthday in May.  I was planning on doing an outline of each of the different states we lived in...things like that.  Once I got started though, things have taken on a life of their own.  I actually have the first three pages done.  I am really quite happy with them.  The fourth page is in progress and also going quite well.  Of course, only one so far has gone as planned...but then aren't plans made to be broken or changed or whatever?  I will post pics soon.  Don't want to upset anyone by having so much done yet.  It has just taken on a life of its own and when I'm working it just seems ot come pouring out.

I'm so glad you've found a healing project. Not everyone has the ability to do this, and I think Tommie would be proud of you.
