The following is my year-in-review wrap up with links to all BJP related posts, but not to worry. At the end of this post is a list of links to just the finished works. A beader's digest version, if you will.

THIRTY-ONE, the post that shows the completed page for March, entitled Ostara.
THIRTY-TWO, in which the April page is shown completed. It is titled Air/The Sylph.
THIRTY-THREE, in which we see the finished page for May, entitled Beltane.
Now we come to it. How will the pages be displayed? As I mentioned, they are all interchangeable flaps for my "extra pocket" purse.
As promised, here's the short form:
The link for the project itself is now defunct.
Oh. One last thing. That box I was working on to house the pages? Well, there was a bit of a kerfuffle there and the lunchbox had to be scrapped. The upshot is this: we're going on to Plan B. I used to make padded boxes, so with the remaining black leather, some mat board and an afternoon at my sewing machine, Something Other will be produced. And will be the subject, along with my final thoughts on the BJP, for another day.
EDIT: Here's a little shout-out to the nice folks at Jewelry & Beading, as well as Needlework/Craft Gossip.
