Searching For The Light--December BJP

I finished by December BJP before the end of the year, but it has been difficult to write about. Come to my blog Crackpot Beader to see why. Marty S

bjp 1212 - symphony in blue

I'm more than a little blue to be ending this series, but am certainly looking forward to starting on 2013!  How about the rest of you?  This piece was finished in December, but I didn't get a chance to take photos until a couple of weeks ago.  Then Blogger updated something and I couldn't post photos for some reason. Grrrr!!!!  I eventually figured out a workaround, so all is now good!

If you're interested in seeing more photos and reading the story, please wander on over to my blog.

I will miss my little houses though!!

2012 Finished

I completed my Dec piece last week on Jan 10, but we traveled this past weekend and I didn't have the time to post it. So, now, here it is:

I used blue, green, and silver for the holiday colors, Chanukah, Christmas, and a bit of sparkle. The charms start at the top with LIVE. Life is so short and we never know how much time we have, so it's important to live life to its fullest. Below that one is a ship to represent our December trip to the Galapagos Islands, a dream trip if there ever was one. It was fantastic and everything I could have wanted it to be. We were on a power catamaran (no cat charms) with only 8 cabins, and the guests on our cruise totaled 13. This is a trip I've been wanting to take for over 30 years and now was the time!
The other two charms obviously are for the two major holidays during December; of course there are others, but those are the ones I choose. Also, I used bells in the center to add a bit of whimsy.

Now 2012 is complete and on to January 2013.

So I have finally taken pictures of my 2012 year. I decided to just photo them all together, well six monthas at a time. So if you are interested in seeing them they are here and on my blog. Now on to 2013, see you there! (Oh, in case you wondered, the only one of these critters that was not in my yard was of course the swan, she was in the lake behind us.) The porky that stars in December, tried to come in the house one night. It was just awfully cold and the wind was awful, so I don't blame him/her for wanting in.
