Aren't they just fabulous? This is why the BJP is so inspirational and so much fun!!! They're arranged alphabetically by the first name of the participant. Sorry, I didn't have time to look up and link to everyone's blog... maybe after Christmas, I'll have time to do that.

Today, as I post these pictures,
is December 14th.
Tomorrow (Dec. 15th)
is the last day
to register for the
2010 BJP.
After seeing these pictures,
how could you resist???

Happy holidays everyone!

PS. If you've gone bonkers over one of the above pieces and want to see more of that person's work, try finding them on the alphabetical BJP Participants List. It's located at the bottom of the right sidebar, here.


  1. Awesome, Robin! I feel so honored to be included with all these exquisitely done pieces.

  4. ZOMG everyone, all this work is just FAB-U-LOSUS!!! What a fine bunch of beauties...and all the feelings that went into these, gads, almost too much to take in in one sitting - I'm going to have to come back a couple more times so that I can let them filter through...

    Robin, thank you so much for posting these niblets of inspiration - a lot of work on your part but so, so appreciated. I LUVLUVLUV seeing this gorgeous beadwork! Bravo, each and every one!!

  5. What beautifull eye-candy! Gives me a real boost for next year!

  6. WOW, the whole time I looked at each one all I could think of was OMG how beautiful & how creative.

    Each one is "unique" & reflects a wonderful colorful image of what is inside each of us in what we "see & how we feel".

    I feel very honored to be a part of this group in *2010*

    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Gosh Robin,
    You picked some of my favorites too, and included some that I don't remember seeing. Perhaps I appreciate them more now.

    Reving up for the next year.

    Happy Holidays.
    Hope all is well with you.

  8. These are fantastic. I'm so excited to be part of the upcoming 2010 group (and a little intimidated I might add) *smile*.

    I'm overwhelmed by the beauty, skill and creativity in these pieces. Iwouldn't participate next year if this is a competition. I'm looking forward to challenging myself, no matter how my pieces come out.

  12. I finally joined up, Robin! I certainly hope I can measure up to these beauties you have posted today. Thanks for all you do.

  13. Thanks Robin, I am so honored you have posted 2 of my pictures, it's very encouraging, yes I am proud, very proud like a peacock (lol). I was, I am undecided but I have only finished 6 pieces, I am finishing the borders to offer them , I am the french turtle!
    So I prefer to take a break, I would want to make the other pieces and will join you next year in 2011. Perhaps I'll get better in english,I have often renounced to give a comment to all these beauties because I was just capable of repeating the same words :'beautiful' 'so nice' etc...grrrr
    Thanks for all you do, thanks for supporting each member Robin . And thanks and bravo each one.
    Joyeux Noël et bonne année à toutes

  14. Well I'm well stocked with 15s and into the FeederWatch Program so it all should be great fun...

  18. Thanks so much for including not one, but two of my little triangles. I'm thrilled! I'm looking forward to connecting with both new and old friends in the 2010 BJP (btw, you're now an "old" friend). If only I could settle on just one shape. LOL!

  19. Beautiful!! I enjoyed this so much.

  20. The creativity is endless!.....That is the biggest miracle of all....

    Robin -

    I just got to see this today. Thank you so much for including one of my pieces with all these beautiful creations. I'm so looking forward to this next year's journaling. I've mentioned this project to several friends but I don't know if any have signed up. This is such a wonderful way to express one's self and I thank you for the opportunity.

  22. Oh, what beauty and what talent !

    What a pity so few people sent their pictures to the BJP official website :o(

    I love them all and feel honored that I beaded with Phyl K and her piece is one of the photos you picked. She and all of you are very talented artists. Looking forward to 2010

  24. I am so tickled you picked one of my beaded babes from the BJP for your "faves"!!! Oh, every piece from every beader is so gorgeous......thank you for your ongoing inspiration; and yes, I did sign up to do it again in 2010!!!

  25. Robin,

    It is an honor to be included by you in this group of talented artists. Thank you so much for your support of creativity through BJP.


  26. I am thrilled and honoured to be selected to have one of your favorite pieces. I have 5 more to go to finish the year. Late this year as the wind was taken out of my sails. Hopefully soon, I will have them completed....

  27. Truly fabulous!
    I've got to finish all my BJP#2's so I can join this amazing group. AND I aim to finish in a more timely fashion with BJP#3 this year, ... at least that is today's goal!


Thanks you for joining the discussion on this post today!
