Bead Soup Party

As some of you know, I am a part of a Facebook group called Bead Soup Cafe, every year Lori Anderson puts together an awesome blog party called The Bead Soup Blog Party

This year there are over 500 entries from all over the world. We are paired with a partner and we send each other a "soup" of beads. We then create pieces from those beads and reveal on our given dates. 

We have to use the focal and the clasp, but we can use some of our own beads in the creation too.The sky is the limit!!!

This year my partner is Carmen from Little Maketto.

Here is a wee sneak peak of the soup I sent Carmen...

 And here is what she sent me....

Look at all the interesting beads and colours...

Stay tuned for the reveal next month.... until then I'm going to have so much fun creating.

Take care everyone,

  5. Wow! What a fun idea!!!

  6. I can't wait to see what you create! What a fun project/party to be a part of!

  7. Oh my word! I think there's a reason I don't craft with beads! I look at them and think...what the heck could I possibly make that would look good. And you, you just make such gorgeous things. Talent, baby!
