I'm so proud of myself! Proud and lucky too that the weather cooperated this week. Had a few warm days so had time to torch & make some pretties for my Bead Soup Blog Party partner, Kristie Roeder or Artisan Clay. I took a photo of the beads yesterday. Wanna see??
What's wrong? Can't see the beads?? You didn't really think I was going to post the REAL photo before I send the beads on their way, now did you?? lol!

YAY me! I finally remembered to apply to participate in the Bead Soup Blog Party this time around run by Lori Anderson. It's a fun event where artisans are assigned random partners. Each person then selects a focal bead, a special clasp & a collection of other fun beads to send, from which each person will then create a fun necklace, bracelet or anything else their creative minds can come up with.
My bead soup partner is Kristie of Artisan Clay on Etsy. She's a potter & creates such fun designs! I love her work & can't wait to see what she sends. And, no, the beads in the bowl are not what I'm sending. That remains a secret until they're out the door. :-)

My day just got brighter! I took in the mail, only to find this wonderful lap blanket from Amy Dutsch of Mama's Little Monkeys. I completely forgot that I had won it. It's in beautiful blues & greens, that I just happen to LOVE & has a nice warm fleece backing in lime green. Perfect timing! Off to snuggle under it with a warm glass of tea!
Check out her wonderful handmade sewn designs at Mama's Little Monkeys, such as this cute little pin cushion in another fun color combo! Isn't handmade so much better than mass produced??
Thanks so much Amy! I will think of you whenever I use it.
