Wow! What a summer! Our family has been soooooo busy!!!! I have so much to blog about, but right now, I want to tell you all about the Bead Soup Blog Party!
The Bead Soup Blog Party is an online party. Lori Anderson is the one that is hosting this fun activity. She assigns you a partner and you both exchange beads. After taking a picture of what you receive, you then start creating. After you finish your creation, you then take pictures of your finished product and post and blog about it. Then everyone involved in the Bead Soup Blog Party comes to visit your blog. There are so many talented artists! I love seeing what people come up with. Last year I created several nice pieces with beads sent by Stacy of Park Avenue. You can read about it on my blog by clicking here.
This time my partner is Heather Marley. You can check out her blog by clicking on her name. As those of you who have been reading my blog know, this has been quite the summer, with two graduations, one of our children entering college, and one getting married, I have been extremely busy. After the wedding, I decided to take a trip with my mom and dad to visit with family in Colorado. When I got back, our internet was not working ( and still is not---I am at the library blogging :P) Anyway, I was excited to hear about who my Bead Soup partner was going to be, so I had my daughter get into my email to check it out. I was so excited to hear that she is a member of the same church I go to. It seems too that she is a photographer too, just like me! It seems like we have A LOT in common. What fun!
Well, today, I have sent off her beads. I hope she likes them as much as I do. I had to buy some for me too, and have already made up a piece with some of the same beads I sent her. It will be fun to see what she does with them, hehe!
Well, better get back to my gazillion and one emails....
