|My sister, Robin Atkins, started the Bead Journal Project. To participate, one had to do a piece a month for a year. I started in June, only to find that the piece I was going to use set the size for all of the following months. It wasn't until November that I became aware that it was a "Journal" project, and the pieces were to be about what that month was about for me. What followed were more personal, and I did change out the original piece for June and do a new one. Not quite a diary, but a commentary on each month from June, '08 to July, '09.
