I have to admit, finishing this Bodacious Bead Book project feels like letting go of a friend who I spent quality time with daily. This dear friend is now complete without me and we will go our separate ways. Ever feel that way about a good book you were reading? But, now you are better for having spent the time together.
I chose to put a martini on the front cover and coffee on the back because I've been striving to BE a person (inside and out) who felt somewhere in between what drinking an alcholic beverage and a stimulating cup of coffee feels like. And the fringe on the binding represents all the chaos and repetitious bits of life in-between our dreams and goals that may get in the way of how we strive to BE. I love the quiet clinking sound the fringe makes when brushing my fingers through it. It's good to make friends with the chaos and find its attractiveness.
I guess I can clean my house now or finish another of the deluge of UFOs waiting for attention. And now I can view my bead book friend from afar and every time I see it, it'll remind me how I strive to BE in the daily chaos that makes us forget.
