The Bead Soup Blog Party, a new event for me, will begin with sign-ups starting August 1 - 3. If you would like to participate, or check it out, click on the button on the right or click here.

I am going to participate in this even if I have to stand and make my jewelry. I guess my motto will be "Where there's a will, there's a way". I have cleared the top of a chest of drawers to use as my work space since I have had so much trouble sitting for long periods of time with this ol' back!

I am excited and a little nervous, too, since I am always in such 'awe' of the beautiful designs I have seen produced from the soup mixes. I certainly am not a seasoned designer, but love beautiful jewelry and have enjoyed my journey of learning to make the few things I've done so far.  This should really stretch my imagination and my abilities. I hope I can do this activity justice! Time will tell!
