Bead Soup Blog Party!!

Hi everyone.... The reveal day is here!!  This is my second Bead Soup Blog Party and it was just as much fun the second time around.  It was organized again by the wonderful Lori Anderson of Pretty Things - Thank you, Lori for all of your hard work pulling all of this together (especially when you aren't feeling well)!!  

My partner is Lecia (Lisa) Woessner from Copper Roses.  She is a transplanted southern belle living in Easton, MD.  We chatted a few times and she is very sweet. Check out her boards on Pinterest

I debated whether to participate this year because I am very busy visiting colleges with my daughter this year (she is a Junior).  We are actually visiting Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore on Friday - So, I am finishing this post before we leave.  But it all worked out (especially with the extra week Lori gave us!)

Here is what she sent me (Sorry about the pictures - I took them with my iphone):



TWO BEAUTIFUL FOCALS

                                           
                                  
LOVED THE CLASP.... JUST MY STYLE


THE PACKAGING WAS SO PRETTY AND FUN TO OPEN....



A PRETTY BOWL I WILL USE IN MY CRAFT AREA

THIS IS THE PICTURE LECIA POSTED ON HER BLOG - I THINK IT DOES THE SOUP MORE JUSTICE THAN MY PICTURES....



Here is what I made:















I am in the middle of making a second bracelet - I will post that when I finish!




I hope you enjoy hopping around I know I will!!
I can't wait to see what Lecia made with the soup I sent her.

Here is the link where you will find all of the participants ENJOY!!:
