Bead Soup has arrived!

The 9th edition of Bead Soup Blog Party is in full swing and I couldn't be happier! I can hardly believe this is my sixth time participating; it's been such fun every time! If you want to check out what I made for the past parties, click here

This time, I have been paired with Dyanne of Dee-Liteful Jewelry Creations. She sent me a wonderful mix of beads, including a Jade oval pendant (that I can't wait to wire wrap), as well as white quartz, ceramic and lampwork beads. She also wrote her note on a beautiful art work post card (by Shelly Graham Turner). There's so many different materials and colors, it has my head going every which way with possibilities. I love it! 

Unfortunately, the mail can be so rough on beads. One of the little teal tulips was broken when I opened the package. Bummer! So they won't be turned into earrings, but I think I've got the perfect idea in mind for the remaining bead. It's all about rolling with the punches!

Be sure to come back on March 25th for the reveal!

Almost Three Years

Typing out my first blog post in almost three years, it feels familiar, yet filled with new possibilities. I have missed blogging, and often think, "I'll start doing that again soon!", but it just never seemed the right time to do so.

Last month, as I was mindlessly scrolling through facebook on my phone, I saw a post from a familiar name, Lori Anderson, and it read that she was going to begin her famous Bead Soup Blog Party again. Oh, the excitement that I felt!! Participating in her event has always been a huge highlight of having my blog. I really enjoy the trading of beads, and the challenge that came with creating pieces for the big reveal. I just had to join the party!

I'm really hoping that I'll start blogging regularly again, and not just for the Bead Soup Blog Party. However, the next few posts will be all about it! I know you're as excited as I am!
