My Bead Soup arrived today! YAY! Lori Anderson is to thank for hosting the Bead Soup Blog Party which consists of 400 participants. 400 is Crazy, huh?! So the Bead Soup swap is where to individuals are paired up and then they send each other a stash of beads for the other to design with and then they each reveal their creations on the official reveal date. Lori has it set up so that the reveal is broken up into 3 separate dates a few weeks apart so that everyone will have enough time to visit each blog to see what they have created with their soup mix. I'm in the third reveal which is scheduled for August 25th. Reveal 1 is July 28th, and Reveal 2 is August 11th.
My partner is Suzann Sladcik Wilson of Beadphoria. Suzann was more than generous with the Bead Soup she sent to me! She sent me tons of beads, 4 claps, an amazing focal she handmade and she sent me a signed copy of her book called “Simple Beginnings: Beading A step by Step Guide for Creating Your Own Custom Jewelry”. WOW! That was so nice of her. Here are some photos of the items she sent to me. I can’t wait to get started $!
