Well, this is certainly outside my safety zone as I have never beaded before, except to scatter a few beads across an embroidery in lieu of French knots! I'm really weak in coming up with original designs/ideas. And "journaling" is NOT in my comfort zone.
So I bought some books, got out my large collection of seed beads, etc. (why do I have so MANY when I don't bead? Must be the same gene that makes we want one of every color of floss ever devised! LOL), and "jumped" in.
Here are the first two entries in my 2010 Bead Journal! I'm using 5" x 5" fabric square to bead on; to date, I've pieced the fabric but that may vary. Also I've stuck with seed beads because that is what I have but I am no finding myself drawn to the local bead shop... really dangerous! LOL

What do you do to get yourself out of a style slump?
