Bead Soup Party is ON

My partner in this great Bead soup Party , Nikki Banham -Hall, received her bead soup from me yesterday. I think she likes it. Head on over to her blog and check out all the cool things she is up to, and check out what she got in her soup mix.

My Bead soup Arrived

happy mail today. I got my BEAD SOUP from Nikki Banham-Hall in the UK. I think the British postal system beat Canada Post as we mailed our packages on the same day.  I got mine today, just over a week from Britain to Kilmarnock ON. Not bad at all.
Here is the great mix Nikki sent me
they include: -hand made ceramic beads ( one focal leaf pendant and three pairs of coordinating rounds )from BLUEBERRI BEADS in the UK.; great big smokey quartz rounds , some are very light in colour and some are almost opaque grey,( that's the great thing about natural stones, there is so much variety from one bead to another.); the medium size ones are fossil stone, so creamy and soft in colour, and finally gorgeous faceted amethysts (my mom's birthstone) and a handmade toggle clasp in copper.
I love this mix of colours and I have a thing for LEAF focals, love them, and this one is stunning and purple, my fave colour .
thanks to Nikki for this great soup , i already have some ideas churning in my head about what to make with all these fab beads. I don't think I'll have to use any of my stash to make something spectacular. we'll see >>wink<<
I hope Nikki gets her soup soon. Can't wait to hear if she likes it. (hope she does)
Update: Nikki got her beads the same day so the postal race is a tie.
pop on over to  her blog to see what I sent.

Bead Soup Blog Party

I got my partners name for the upcoming BEAD SOUP BLOG PARTY.
Time to get my package on the road to her. It will have to wait till Monday as my postal outlet isn't open on the weekend. This will give me time to add a few more bits to the parcel.
Can't wait to see what she sends me and what we make with our BEAD SOUP.
This is going to be SUCH FUN.
Once I know she has received the soup I'll post a photo for you to see the goodies I sent.
