Before I go, I have to share that I received some yummy Bead Soup from my partner, Karen at Over the Moon Design, that I want to share with you. (You can click any of the pictures for a better view of them)
|Here's the beads, pendant, and clasp all piled together|
|Here's those same beads separated with the labels Karen sent|
|Karen also made these fabulous crochet flowers!!|
|She also included some chain and fiber for me to play with.|
|Here's how beautifully she had it all packaged.|
In addition to this news, there are a few giveaways going on right now.
*~* Lori Anderson, Bead Soup hostess, is giving away some items from her trip to Bead and Button. You should check out this awesomeness. She has FIVE prize packs. Head over to her blog to see what I mean.
*~* Art Bead Scene Blog has a goal of getting 200 Art Bead Scene readers to donate bracelets to the Global Genes 7000 bracelets of Hope Project this month as part of their July monthly challenge. I've made a few bracelets for this cause in the past and know that it's a worthy cause. You can read more about it at the Global Genes site or through Art Bead Scene. They are using sponsors throughout the month to encourage getting the word out and participation. Melinda Orr is just one of those sponsors and has a pretty prize pack.
Okay. . .I've got a ton to finish up today. I have yet to start packing the craft supplies. Sheesh! Here's hoping you have a great week. I'll see ya on the flip side. :)

You will have a lot of fun playing with this soup and that pendant is wonderful!ReplyDelete
Karen- I LOVE these beads. I'm finally hope from a convention and am SOOOOO looking forward to playing with them. I don't think I expressed that very well in this post as I was rushing. As well, I'm relieved that the beads I sent arrived safely and that you like them. WHEW!! :)ReplyDelete
Ambra- It will definitely be a good time working with my soup. Yes, the pendant is AMAZING! I've been dreaming of it since I left town.
That focal is delish! And I love the crochet flowers. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with them. Thanks for dropping by my blog - as for those wonder beads, that's what my partner called them so that's what I went with. Prior to that, I had no idea what they were called :-).ReplyDelete
Adlinah- Isn't is!? You are very welcome. I'm just glad you shared that "wonder beads" is what they are called. I had no idea those shiny beads had their own name!! :)ReplyDelete
