I've spent most of this week trying to get as much done as possible for two projects. The first is the decorations for a murder mystery dinner theater thing I'm on the committee for and the other is the Bead Soup Blog Party. I've gotten done what I can.
Today I play catch up. . .
- Finally getting to the e-mails I barely glanced at then saved
- Actually participating in twitter, facebook, and G+
- Perusing some of the beautiful and fun things on Tumblr and Pintrest
- Reading the blog posts I've been missing
- Checking my stats
- Posting something in the shop
- Writing this blog post
- Cleaning the craftroom after the whirlwind I created in gathering, prepping, and packaging for the Bead Soup Blog Party
- Possibly creating something
- Taking photos of the items that have been made
- And so much more that I've neglected.
Let me start with the picture of my craft desk that I took on Wednesday for Bead Table Wednesday. . . but couldn't get around to posting.
It was my mess of just some of the bits I pulled out while working on my package for my Bead Soup Partner.
Speaking of which, let me tell you that my partner is Andrea Morici of Beadaholique. She also has an Etsy shop, Noon Blue Apples. I was a little intimidated by being paired up with Andrea since I can tell from her BTW posts that she often works with seed beads. AND. . .she works for a jewelry supply company. However, she assured me that I could send her whatever I wanted and the wonderful Lori Anderson of Pretty Things (and the creator of the Bead Soup Blog Party) also re-iterated in one of her many e-mails that this IS supposed to be a bit of a challenge to work with materials we don't always use. So, here's a teaser of what I sent to Andrea yesterday.
Lastly, I can knock listing a new item off that to do list as I put this beauty up for sale. . .it's a favorite of mine!

I know there were other things I wanted to say in this post. . .but they've completely flown out of my head. Ah well, I'm sure they'll come to me later! (and knowing me I won't write them down and will forget them once again.) HA! At least it's Friday!
