I'm finally blogging about the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party . . .This party is what finally got me off my duff to start a blog in the first place! I wanted to get out of the shadows and go to the Party! Woo Hoo!
I lurked in those shadows for years and hopped along at each reveal but I'm in the shadows NO MORE!!! My lovely and talented partner Lori Bergmann and I put our exchange date on hold while she fostered a new pup and Steve and I cleaned out our "other" home on the Eastern Shore (auction of contents is next month and will probably warrant another blog!). But we will exchange our soups next week! Until then, I wanted to say a few words about my new friend and BSBP partner.
She lives near Seattle, WA (yes, the other side of the U.S.A. from me), with hubby and two daughters and two pups. She's a graphic artist turned lampworker and jewelry artist.
Her list of lifetime accomplishments, 400 published craft, art and jewelry projects, workshops, etc., boggles my mind. She also is author of a book on Creative Painting. Busy lady!

I finially got all the beads together that I'm sending Lori and will put them in a soup bowl to mail when we get back to Frederick. Lots of enamels, of course! It is a lovely soup - if I do say so.
See. . .
and here is one focal and the lovely Bali silver clasp. . .
What do you mean. . .you can't see it clearly? You wouldn't want me to spoil Lori's surprise, would you? One clue is that it's blue. . .
I'll post again with better pictures when Lori's arrives next week. Our reveal is March 30!
Till then, soup's on!
