My Bead Soup Partner ......

is the lovely and talented
Sheryl Stephens of Cool Moon Creations & Beads.
Sheryl is a seed beader AND a stringer, so much talent☺
She sells her jewelry and some pretty awesome beads in her
And you can check out her blog at The Babbling Beader

It was seriously crunch time this morning!
I was determined to meet the deadline for sending out beads to our partners
and apparently my time management skills are on vacation
(I can only hope that they are enjoying sandy beaches and sunshine)

Well, I finished the last of the components that I wanted to make myself
(Nothing like waiting until the last minute, I work better under pressure,
yada yada yada☺)

Which meant I was photographing, bagging, labeling and boxing
everything this morning and I have to tell you that I realized just then,
that I make Bead Soup the same way I make real soup.

I start out with a small pot (there's only the two of us)
and I add and add stuff until I am using my largest stock pot
and poor Hubby has to eat soup for lunch for a week and there is still more
 left to freeze for later☺

Bead Soup I sent to Sheryl

Anyway, our little Post Office is only open until noon on Saturday,
so Hubby was warming up the car while I was finishing the packaging and he got it there
30 minutes before closing, YAY!
AND, there was a package waiting to be picked up
from my bead soup partner, Sheryl!

The only bummer was that as I was attempting to start cleaning up the enormous mess I created
while making bead soup, I realized that during my speed packaging, I forgot to include
the 'Just Because' bag.

See ~ I made up several "bead soups" over the last couple of weeks,
but kept changing my mind, and I had a couple of components that
weren't part of the bead soup I finally settled on, but I thought maybe
Sheryl would like them.

I will have to send them separately. 
 It's just as well, cuz I don't think they would have fit in the box anyway☺

By the way, I absolutely love what Sheryl sent me and hopefully I will have time
to show you what I got tomorrow.
It's purrrrty!


  1. NOW I REALLY can't WAIT! Come on postman, do your THING!
