Good Saturday morning to you! I'm showing off the Bead Soup Mix I sent to my partner Cat. It's a lovely mix of reds, turquoise, ivory and copper. I made some small decorative beads with hearts matching the color palette. That's the great thing about making your own beads, creating a set of perfectly matched beads.
I loved it so much, I've made the beads available to you. Just visit my website if you'd like some for yourself.
Next week, I'll be doing the Bead Bloggers weekly links and joining up with the Crafty Bloggers too. I'm excited about it because I'll start showing off my other obsessions....errrr...skills and I can share beadmaking/crafting info there.
In the meantime, take a look at this week's beady links!
