As I look out of my window the world is getting whiter and whiter by the minute. We haven't had this much snow in The Netherlands for about 30 years! Opening my mailbox and finding the invite to joining this BJP blog made me feel like the white outside is somehow a reminder of the 12 blank canvases I will use to bead my story.
Before I even signed up I had a preset idea of what it all had to become after I was done. Those who know me a little from my blog know that letting go is not my strong point. Still, I have let go of my idea and at this point have not the slightest clue as to what is going to happen over the next year. To be honest, this has made me happier than I would ever thought it could have. Even before starting, being a member of the BJP has tought me a life lesson and helped me discover something that I hold dear.
For the past weeks or so I haven't touched a bead, just listened to what thinking of january brought me, looking around for inspiration, and a little pondering about my material. I can't wait to start my journey... ah well, I guess it started already somewhere in september. I wish all of you a very, beady 2010.
