This is Susan (on the right). This was a Very Good Day for me.
Susan is one of my Cyber Friends. We met last year when while participating in the Bead Journal Project. Susan and I keep in contact occasionally via email. When she and her husband were going to be visiting family that live near me, I am so glad that she contacted me to see if we could meet.
It was a lovely visit. She brought some of her BJP pages and I brought mine. Its really neat to see other beader's work in person. I hope that we will be able to share more time together in the future.
When Susan's husband asked me why I chose an octagon shape for my pages, I really didn't think much about it. My answer was that I want them to fit together nicely. I am planning to use them to embellish a tote or purse.
But, if you know me, you know that I know there is a reason for everything we do, every choice we make. That got me to thinking about why I chose the shape. I played with it quite a bit to get each side the correct length. Six sides would have been easier. You might remember that I mentioned that my theme for this years project is Celebrate Who You Are. Well, an octagon shape is perfect for my Me Celebration. I am multi faceted, multi talented, multi personalitied, just plain multi. Maybe Eight is Not Enough!
