8th Bead Soup Blog Party is Here!!


I had to take a break for a bit from my blog because of
life.
But what better way to come back,
8th Bead Soup Blog Party.

My partner is Mary K McGraw
from


Here is what I made....


I then found some cute cultured sea glass in the soup
and created a pair of earrings.


I had no clue what to do with the starfish beads
until.....

And the last pair of earrings


I still have a huge amount of beads left to play with so I guess
a to "bead" continue is in order.

I want to thank Lori for putting on the blog party  &
thank you to Mary K for being my partner.
Now to find the rest of the partiers
you can go to
