You can check out the whole post here on my blog.

Have a bead-iful day! Susan

YIKES!!!! Last day to register for 2010 BJP ~ Pictures!!!

December 15th is the last day to register for the 2010 BJP...

If you're undecided, take a look at my blog, here. I just posted pictures of some of my favorite pieces from the past year of the BJP... 42 pictures (most click-to-enlarge)... work by 40 of our participants!!!! I was erratic at saving pictures, so I didn't get all of my favorites. Also some members don't have a blog or didn't post pictures to the website. However, the pictures I posted will give you some grand inspirations and incentives to join the 2010 BJP!!!!

Happy holidays, everyone!!!

PS... If you're having difficulty registering or have questions about it, you can email

me: robin[at}robinatkins{dot]com
or Pam T: pamtru63{at]gmail[dot}com

PSS... Thanks for your well wishes about my Mom. During the week I was in Minnesota, she rallied nicely. I'm hoping she'll make her 93rd birthday in January!

Following the Inspiration: Part 3

I have posted part 3 of my Following the Inspiration series about how I am coming up with my ideas for my 2010 BJP.  ~Angie

Hi from chilly Minnesota...

Hi everyone!

My dear Mom took a turn for the worse a week ago and we thought her time among us was at an end. So my sister (who lives in Everett, WA) and I flew back to MN to be with her. Luck for us, she has rallied and we are spending some quality moments with her.

In the meantime, I've been having a little time to bead again with Julie, Pam and Brenda, all three BJP participants living in St. Paul, MN! Tomorrow we're going to Pam's for another session. We're having great fun talking about our ideas for BJP 2010. Brenda's working on a special beaded box that will hold her 2010 pieces. I won't spill the beans about it, but it's going to be amazing! Pam's talking about wanting more texture, more dimension to her pieces. Julie is still very undecided. Me too, although I have lots of ideas and I'm pretty sure I'll do some shape other than 4x6, the postcard shape I've been using for the past two years.

What about YOU????????

Will you be with us? I hope so!!!! There are only 5 more days to register. Really, truely, it is not hard. If the registration information on our website seems to difficult or doesn't work on your computer, just email Pam T or me and tell us you want to be in. We'll take care of it.

One current member emailed me to say she hadn't finished this year's pieces yet and therefore felt she shouldn't do it again. My answer is this: Don't be bogged down by last year's business... If you think you'd like to try it again, go for it. Let 2008-09 rest and move on!!!

May you all have a deliciously wonderful holiday season. May your stockings be filled with fabulous beads!

Hugs to you all,

Following the Inspiration

I will be writing a series of posts to my BJP blog about my inspiration and how I am going through the process of deciding what I want to do for the 2010 BJP. I published the first part today and will continue to add new parts during the month of December and maybe into January. I would love to say how often I would be posting but since we will be moving into our new house just before Christmas and have painting and other projects that we want to do before we move in I am not sure how often I will have the time to add the other parts but I will do my best.

I hope that you all have a wonderful Holiday Season and hope to see lots of you in the new year as we start our 3rd year. ~Angie

Can a Behinder Still Post

If a behinder can still post, I'd like to tell whoever is still out here listening that I have a page done finally. It's May which means I still have three to go. I can't believe I'm even thinking about doing next year but it keeps nagging at me. I don't want to give up the group but I am having trouble seeing so have to work this one out. Anyhow, I have my newest page up on my blog here.


Seven registrants since last Sunday, the 15th…. 2 are returning members, 5 new! Total registration so far is 178!

Homelands for the registrants of the week: QUEBEC CANADA -1, NEW YORK – 1, NEVADA – 1, OHIO -2, ARIZONA – 1, WASHINGTON – 1

Only a few more weeks to get your registration in for the 2010 BJP – past participants, send in those registrations so you don't miss out on the great experience you have had with us in the past!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
