Bead Soup Blog Party

Oh! What’s that?
On the right hand side there? That purple box thing…what is it?
I’ll stop being an idiot now. I’m getting far too excited but it’s because I’ve just signed up for my very first Bead Soup Blog Party run by the incredibly talented and also incredibly foolhardy Lori Anderson. If you click on the button it will take you to her blog page all about the Bead Soup.
The Bead Soup Blog Party runs twice a year and involves the following:
Sign up between August 1 – 3: you must have a blog to participate.
August 5: Lori partners everyone up with another beading blogger (see what I mean about foolhardy?)
By August 17: you send out a collection of bead soup to your partner, which must include a focal bead, a interesting clasp, and some coordinating beads
You then photograph your beads that you receive, make something, and then everyone reveals their fantastic makes a month later on September 17 and you take about a week to tour round all the blogs. I’m very excited because, at last count, there are 150 participants from across the world! I’m looking forward to reading new bead blogs and interacting with some new beaders – in fact, I may have already started putting together my bead soup (because I’m like that).
If you’d like to take part you still have another 2 days to sign up, so get on it.
