BEAD SOUP REVEAL <-------click there
If you'll remember last week's BTW, I showed this pretty picture
These were provided to me by Vente of Vintage Beads from Europe. She sent me four half package (50 pieces) bead mixes in the following colors
|Yellow Bead Mix|
|Teal Bead Mix|
|Pink Bead Mix|
|Purple Bead Mix|
I received the bead mixes amidst all the bead soup brouhaha and wasn't able to craft anything with them until last week. I played around with the beads for a while and ended up making these three pieces.
If you'll notice, I didn't use any of the beads from the teal or purple mixes. That's because those beads are for YOU!! I saved my favorite two colors to share with you and challenged myself with the yellow and pink mixes. Anyway. . .
Yes, I'm having another giveaway!!
Leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite product is from Vintage Beads from Europe, whether it's one of the bead mixes, a button set, some of the metal findings, or any of the other cool items Vente has for sale. Just leave a comment with the item and you're entered to win both the purple and the teal bead mix. Easy peasy!! You have until Sunday, October 16th to enter. I'll draw a name on the 17th.
Speaking of giveaways, I stumbled on a few more today!
- My friend, Patty, from My Life Under the Bus is having a really great giveaway. You'll need to head over there to read the details. It's awesome!
- As well, the Vintaj Blog is giving away a really neat collection of items (see below). They just have a few questions they want you to answer.
I've got a list of some less-than-exciting tasks I need to get done today before I can start some new projects on my bead table. Oh, and I heard from Joyce and will be sending out her prize package soon. So there will not be another drawing for the copper bead soup set. I just wanted to clear that up! This copper beauty, however, is back in the shop for sale!
