March 2010 BJP

Here, finally, is my piece for March, 2010. March was quite an intense month, to say the least, complete with drama, a suicide, and all the fallout from that. I'm not sure what this piece says about it all, but here it is.

November (I think... ) BJP

Even though I haven't been posting, I have been working along on various things. Here's my November BJP. I'm still working on September, October, and December, and of course, the mysterious March is coming right up, too.

November was a month of things being very disconnected from one another and continuity being disjointed. There were too many events, as usual, and a major disaster. We took in a(nother) giant feral cat, and had to replace both our computers, which we'll be paying off for a long, long time. I lost a friend over ethics problems (the ones I had with his ethics). I wrote 50,702 words in NaNoWriMo, making me a winner(!!!) and proving to myself that I could actually do such a thing. I'm not sure how much of all of this is actually reflected in this piece. I found I liked the art deco feel the design took, and the colors appealed to me. You can interpret it however you will.

Materials used were beads of 10, 11, and 15 sizes, and cheap square shell buttons I got free at a crafts conference.
