Has it REALLY been since January that we've visited? My bad... it's been a madhouse around here. The single biggest show of my career to date is creeping up on me, and I've been in nose-down production mode since the beginning of the year. So much to do!
In the interest of keeping myself from going cross-eyed, and in hope of stirring up the creative pot, I took a little break and signed up for the Bead Soup Blog Hop....a bead swap with a built-in challenge. I heard about it for the first time ON sign-up day, and had to make a quick decision! My word for the year is "Embrace", so in that spirit, I embraced the synchronicity of the whole thing, and went for it!
My soup arrived over the weekend, and I haven't been able to keep my hands out of it!
All I can say about it is: Above and Beyond! I couldn't believe the treasures that kept coming out of that box, one after the other....
Lots of silver bits & bobs, including a collection of tiny Hamsa hands, eye charms, hearts and a world-tree....
And the focals. OH the focals! Not to mention mixes of blue , turquoise and purple accent beads, with a healthy dash of my swap partner's own lampwork!
My super-generous partner in all of this madness is the talented Cece of The Beading Yogini, who does incredibly gorgeous micro-macrame work. You should definitely pop over and have a look at her lovely pieces!
Reveal Day for finished pieces from this swap is May 3...the suspense is killing me!
