A Bayou Midnight

I keep working along - making coils, wrapping things, trying to do what Kerry taught us at Art Bliss... I'm feeling closer now...

Sip of Soup

This is a picture (like you didn't figure that out?).... of the clasp I made for my soup sistah - Jessica Dickens. I figure it's alright to post images of the beads I sent now because she's already seen them.... right?

And.... here's the soup mix I sent:

 In my head - I can see exactly what I would have done with these beads. I can't wait to see if Jessica sees the same thing! That's always been my favorite thing about the BSBP - seeing the beads, having a vision of what I would do, and then seeing the reveal.

A Lazy Sunday

It's 1:00pm on a hot, hot Sunday afternoon and for the first time since we moved in May, I'm alone in the house. It's so rare to have time just for me, to do whatever I want, (ignore that list!).... so far, I've put dinner in the crockpot, set up my photo box, worked on the Bead Soup Party (almost done!), planned my trip to Beadfest in August and gotten the groceries. I want to wake up every day - and have no pressing engagements... they call that retirement don't they?

Just so you don't feel cheated ~ this is an eyeglass chain that I just finished. I used some of my stash from Yvonne Irvin - I love ALL her stuff! (http://www.etsy.com/shop/MyELEMENTS)
