So sad :-(

It's so sad that the Bead Soup Blog party has had to be cancelled. 
I wish Lori all the best
 for things improving in her life,
 I bet cancelling the hop was the absolutely 
last thing she wanted to do! 

So many people look forward to the hop every year and 
 I, for one,  was very over excited
 and bought a brand new 
lovely, delicious, soup 
all ready to participate in the challenge..

I wonder if there is one person  out there
in the same situation.
If there is, and it's you and you'd like to swap beads
just leave a comment or email me because 
it seems a shame to let good beads go to waste!

Update: Can you tell I am really heart broken about this being cancelled!?
Decided to keep the beads ready for next time!

Creative Goals 2016

My creative  goals this year are; 

1. To play the Bead Soup Blog Party

2. Finish a bead weaving project I was working on last year.

3. Keep going with my bead embroidered cabochons and really
get to know what I'm doing there and expand my skills.

4. Make myself some jewellery!
 I say this every year and then
end up giving away
 what I make!
So  this year I aim to expand my jewellery
box by at least a few pieces!

The Bead Soup Blog Party Returns - Who Is Getting Excited...?!

9th Bead Soup Blog Party

I am SO excited to hear that Lori Anderson 
is going to host the Bead Soup Blog Party 
again this year.

Just in case you don't know, 
it's a really fun blog hop 
where you get assigned 
a partner 
and send each other a lovely surprise 
package of beads.

On a certain date 
everybody posts pics
 of their creations to their blogs
and hops about admiring all the designs.

It's really great fun and if you haven't played yet 
and are considering it do take a look at her blog for 
more details, you won't regret it! 

I have been online shopping to put a lovely soup 
together already (!) and the spooky thing is 
as I'm typing this post it has just arrived through my letter box! 
Woo hoo!
Do you get the idea that I can't wait.... !
- Just hope I remember to sign up on the 15th!!
