Whew! This post is LONG overdue! It has been crazy busy around here with shearing, lambing, and just plain old regular household and farming duties, that I haven’t had a chance til now to sit down and write about the upcoming 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party, hosted by the amazing and wonderful Lori Anderson of Pretty Things Blog!! Lori is such a strong, inspirational woman, and despite the hardships of slowly healing from devastating health problems, she still manages to trudge on! She has an amazingly supportive husband, and a wonderfully helpful, handsome young man of a son, and together with the support of her friends in the online community, she bravely faces her illness head on, and doesn’t let it change what makes Lori, well, LORI! Please take a moment with me, and send some warm thoughts out her way…
This is my third year participating in the BSBP, and I’m excited! I have been partnered with wonderful artist, Heather Richter of Desert Jewelry Designs. Heather creates all sorts of beautiful jewelry pieces, and is an awesome seed bead artist! I just love her cute little owls!!
I may not work with seed beads much, if ever, but I was very excited to learn that Heather is also into mixed media. I hope she enjoys the soup I sent and cannot wait to see what she creates with it! Here’s the soup I received from Heather:
A sweet, natural agate slice, bone beads, brass flower toggle clasp, a pair of glass beads and beading cord! I knew immediately what I was going to do! I have already started working, and am looking forward to our reveal date of May 3rd! Make sure you check back then to see what I have come up with! Til then, keep calm, and enjoy life! =^..^=
