A new experience ....

I took a deep breath, a big leap of faith and signed up for ........... Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party.  Having read about previous Bead Soup happenings on Lori's very interesting blog, I decided that I would like to try it for myself.  Some 362 participants have signed up and I am number 95.  I have spent several hours today (should be working) visiting blogs and viewing some of the awesome creations by very talented beading people.  Don't think I quite fit into that category but I am so excited to be part of this event.
So I now need to start searching through my considerable stack of beads to put together a focal, a special clasp and co-ordinating beads to send to my as yet unknown partner.  I will receive a similar parcel in return and get to show off what I have made on September 17th.  This will be a challenge for me as I am not very confident in designing my own jewellery but I am looking forward to trying something different.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend


Faith and doubt both are needed - not as antagonists, but working side by side to take us around the unknown curve. ~Lillian Smith

I know your creation will be awesome Wendy. I can't wait to see what you decide to make for your very lucky swap partner!

I LOVED the new earings you found at the charity shop! They are gorgeous. I can't believe they were at a CS.
