Soup's on!

Several days ago I received this marvelous pile of beads from my Bead Soup Party partner, Sue Kennedy of SueBeads. Lucky me! There are an absolute ton of jewelry makers participating in this fun party and on February 10th we will all be blogging our final creations. If you follow the party link above you will see the complete list of all of the participants and on February 10th you can spend all day hopping around from blog to blog seeing what everyone made. Sounds like a perfect day to me! The only rules are that we have to use the focal bead and clasp that was sent to us. The additional beads are optional. At the moment I am suffering from I-want-to-roll-around-naked-in-the-beads-syndrome so I haven't had a moment to really think about how I will transform these beauties. Oh, what ever will I do??? Must think...

I wanted to thank everyone for all the kind birthday words from my whiny post yesterday. I had a lovely day and a big part of that was due to all of you! Just think....if it weren't for the internet I would have spent yesterday alone, with only my rabbits to comfort this aging artist, working on my manifesto and drinking Red Cat until I passed out....

Just kidding! (I prefer whiskey.)

Yes, let's party in May! We should do a weekend getaway somewhere! Maybe a few days in NYC? (if we can find a super cheap hotel, that is ;)

awesome bead soup ingredients... and, really, to look like you do (who will be gorgeous always, because it is afterall, YOUR face) how can you worry about age? except for the dumbing down part - which had me laughing so hard the kids wanted to know what i was reading...

Happy Birthday! You look beautiful in that self-portrait. . .I'm a decade ahead and probably at least a decade behind (see my blog becoming an artist in midlife), so I'm jealous and impressed by what you've accomplished!

Enjoy the bead soup; I've got some, too.
