Soup is ON…

Well, hello!!!!!  Today, is the day of the BIG reveal of what,  I did with the fabulous bead soup from my very talented partner Shea Zukowski of gr8findings. If you remember, Shea totally spoiled me ( thanks again, Shea). She sent me a ton of GORGEOUS beads.  So many in fact,  I was able to do three projects. YES, three!

So, lets get this party started! Lets start small with project number one.  A sweet and simple pair of earrings : “Moons of Saturn”

Next up is my favorite piece: ” Hazel K on a wing”

The only thing I added to the mix that Shea sent me was some sead beads in size 8.

Now we are to the BONUS round! DING DING DING!!!! Project number 3: ” Nature Walk”

Of course on the bonus, I had to use a few more things from my stash.Seeds beads, clasp, glass brown pearls, vintaj metal piece, and one of my handmade charms.

Now, please go check out what Shea did with the beads I sent her. I can’t wait to see. I know she did something outstanding. After you are done with her blog check out the others. Here is a link to all of the partners on Lori’s blog.

I would also like to thank Lori Anderson, for all her hard work with this enormous group (362). It’s a ton of work to partner and monitor all these folks! Thanks so much Lori! You totally ROCK!

Thank you for taking the time to come check out my soup. Enjoy the rest of the soups. Come back any time and see what I am cooking up! SMILE!
