For my bead journaling I am using a 1" diameter wood ball and beading around it. For January I have chosen the theme of snow, because this year our winter in Michigan broke all records for snow, and it was amazingly cold as well. Interestingly, because it was so cold, the sky was often blue, which is unusual for our winters. Usually it is gray and depressing. What was depressing about this winter was how unbearably long it was and how it actually hurt to go outside because of the cold.
