Fairy Tale/Spring Blog Hop -- Bead Soup Blog Party Light

Lori Anderson has done it again!  This time with fewer players and a theme.  The swap theme was "Fairy Tales/Spring" and the only requirement was that we design a piece and post for today's blog hop.  Imagine my delight to discover that my partner was our hostess herself.  I don't know what thrilled me more, receiving beads that Lori had selected or the opportunity to have her design a piece using my beads.  I sent Lori a selection of my polymer and some accents, but you will have to visit Lori's blog to see what she created.  Lori sent me a wonderful selection of playful resin, flowers, charms and crystals along with two lovely lampworked beads.  The minute I opened the package I saw this:

Right here should be a picture of the beautiful charm
bracelet that I made with Lori's beads.  Unfortunately, I had camera
problems on Friday and asked my son to take pictures
for me early Saturday morning.  Much to my dismay, while
cooking, he sliced his palm, which led to the hospital and stitches
and life got in the way...  Life sometimes gets in the way of art...
Stay tuned (Please!).

I know that you are excited to see what everybody created, I'm sure everything will be amazing.  Without further ado, here are our swappers:

  1. OH NO! I've sliced through the bottom of my hand before doing the stupid thing of trying to slice a bagel. I mean, what was I THINKING??? I remember running around in circles, literally, saying, "What do I do, what do I do????"

    Email me when you're ready, I'll send out an alert! I can't wait to see what you made!

    And hugs to your son.

  2. I wasn't able to post mine either, ironically due to a hand injury, so don't feel too bad! Can't wait to see what you make!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I truly appreciate each and every one!
