BJP ~ September 2008



Here is my first BJP project piece.
September 2008
All 12 months will be little birds of this shape
When finished, I hope to place them in a grapevine wreath 
and place it above the fireplace.
I know this will be a fun year long project.

Jackie,
Oh my God is that beautiful.
You are a amazing lady. I think the
idea of the wreath sounds great.
You've out done yourself again.

Happy Beading,
Toni

JACKIE!!!!!! How stunning is 12 months of birds going to be!? They are going to be wonderful. I also think that it's interesting that we have both started with birds. I am so going to love checking out your progress every month.

Jackie,
Love the little bird. What a super idea and it's something you can easily work on if DH goes back to the hospital. Very clever of you.

I love the bird! What a great idea and what a lovely wreath they will make at the end of the year. Hope your DH is doing well and that you are too.

Hi Jackie:
First, I hope your husband is doing better.

When I got the email that you had a new post, my husband was at the computer when I opened your page. Man, was he impressed with your dolls!! We both love them.

Since I am Beads and Birds, you know I love your choice of projects this year! I love you first and can't wait to see the next.

Terrific idea, Jackie! Your first bird is so beautiful -- this wreath-to-be will surely be stunning when it is finished.

Oh, my, thank you all for your thoughtful, sweet, comments. I'm busy doing the finishing touches to October Bird --- These little birds are such a delight to bead -- the little bodies were made by Ronda Kivett.

Hi Jackie

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. It was lovely to hear from you. This little bird is gorgeous and I look forward to seeing the other one's you create over the next 12 months!

Gorgeous work as usual.

Much love to you and Joe xoxo

What a clever idea Jackie, I will look forward to seeing your birds each month

Robin said...

OMG, Jackie!!!! Like everyone else I am in total awe of your idea... I love birds and the thought of having 12 little, beaded journal birdies on a wreath just sends me! May I copy it for the next BJP (09-10) if there is one?

I hope your husband is on the mend now.

Hugs, Robin A.

Jackie...these are darling! I saw these birds in Rhonda's Etsy shop! She had a special for the comfort doll project last month! I didn't get around to purchasing one and when I went back to peek...they were all gone except for one! Now I know where they all went...~SMILING~!!! They are adorable and it is a wonderful idea for the BJP!

They are absolutely delightful and your beading is lovely! Looking forward to seeing them all together at the end of the year!

Lisa - I special ordered the little birds from Ronda - they weren't from the comfort doll special - I think they may be smaller ones than the comfort doll special. Ronda has the nicest forms -- and with DH being hospitalized so much I knew I wouldn't have time to make them myself.

Donetta said...

Oh! I just fell in love with that sweet little bird. I am going to try may hand at it. TOO cute!

Gammie said...

Jackie:

The lil birdie is fantastic and the idea of the wreath at the end is priceless. I love it.

Hope all is well,
Jeanne

I couldn't resist coming back to look at your birdy again. So gorgeous Jackie!

Kivett Studio said...

Jackie you did a beautiful job with the bird form... It looks spectacular! One down, 11 more to go and I can't wait to see them all.Thanks so much for sharing ;-) Ronda

Tracey N. said...

Oh Jackie I just LOVE this piece. I too love birds. I tried to find these forms and it looks like Ronda doesnt have any for now. What size are these? I cant wait to see how they progress through the year. What a great idea! Tracey
