Bead Soup Blog Party #7 Reveal

Time for the first reveal at the Bead Soup Blog Party # 7.

First off, I was thrilled with all the beads, charms and bits that my partner Debra Behrends (Hopeful Journeys) shared with me.

So much good stuff that I could not fit everything into my limited design time.

Next up, I’d like to thank Lori Anderson (Pretty Things) for hosting this event and at the same time, to thank all the party goers who make this such a blog blast. Reserve some time for blog hopping. It’s a treat. Participants links are here.

A few words about my design process. Mostly I just sit down and make stuff. Not much for sketching, or grand design planning. I trust that the piece will come into being and to be what it needs to be. And, that it will appeal to someone, somewhere.

Ingredient List for Bead Soup 7

Love it when I get to the Post Office Box and there’s a package waiting.

My Bead Soup partner, Debra Behrends (hopefuljourneys.com)

mailed a super generous package of ingredients of both beads and findings.

She also sent a small sized hand bound paper journal too.

To state that I’m thrilled with what she has shared with me would be an understatement!

Thank you Debra.

Take a peek at all the beady goodness:

(BSBP teaser photo of the loot I mailed to Debra.)

We have a few things in common besides melting glass.

We both have funny little white dogs who do tricks.

Her dog does a handstand thing and one of mine does a tripod standing thing when he eats.

We both eat gluten free and paleo.

Both of us dabble a bit in journal making, and it seems we both like a lot of color.

We both have busy schedules.

We also have a few polar opposites.

I live in the Mojave Desert and she lives in Minnesota.

She’s a Momma fours times over and I have no children.

Debra has chickens and I have none. (I am quite envious.)

So, this should be an interesting swap.

Stay tuned for more BSBP posts in the future.
