My partner for the Bead Soup Blog Hop

My partner for the Bead Soup Blog hop is the wonderful Rachel Mallis. She is so nice and sent me the most wonderful soup to play with. I wish I had more time to use everything up that she sent me but life has just been crazy here. I took time to make myself a beautiful necklace and then I was inspired to use the wood chain that she sent me and pair it with something that my son made me a few years ago but I never knew quite what to do with it but thought it would be perfect now. I didn’t think of it soon enough but I want to find a royal blue sari ribbon to run through the chain but since I don’t have that color in my stash I need to order some but ran out of time. I used what I had to give you an idea of what I want to do. I still have some beads left for a few things when I have more time. Rachel also shared some leaves with me that her Grandmother made out of tiny beads. I’m just going to hoard these as they look too fragile to use. ¬†Thank you Rachel for being such a wonderful partner and for the great soup that was so neatly wrapped along with a great letter explaining everything.

Thank you also to Lori Anderson for hosting this hop again, you still put on the best hops. Here’s the link to the rest of the participants.

Now for the pictures of what I made.

My partner is from HI and her name is Cris Peacock and she sent me an awesome soup in a really neat little bag. This is her blog: She made the neat little bird nest focal for me and I really love it. Come back soon to see what I have made with the soup that she sent me!image
