Lets Party ! Bead Soup style!

Lets Party ! Bead Soup style!

Beadsoup Blog Party!

I have been very lucky this year to be a part of the annual bead soup blog party. I believe this is the 8th annual. So I signed up and was paired with Robin Showstack (her blog is here: http://heartsdesiresjewelryforyou.blogspot.com ). Wow was she generous. I have completed two necklaces, one bracelet and two sets of earrings to match some of the other pieces. I still have some left over soup and will make another set of earrings to match the second necklace and if there is anything left over after that I am sure I will find something to make. I am never without an idea or two. I am sure I will find a few on the blog hop too. So hope your having fun at the party. Let me know what you think.
Here is a link to the blog party list. http://www.prettythingsblog.com    And thank you Lori for all your hard work and Lisa for all your help. You both rock!
Hugs and Love and Peace to all,
Shari

UPDATED: 5/30/14 I hope these pictures are larger for everyone. I don’t know how to make them enlarge on click. I can’t find that option on the blog.

Bead Soup –

Bead Soup -

So this is the bead soup I received from my partner Robin. I am super excited to create something with this. That Geisha pendant is fantastic. I see it as the major focal of whatever I make. I hope that Robin liked what I sent her. I have stressed terribly over it being “enough” good enough, quantity enough, quality enough – you know enough! She said it is. I can’t wait to see what she makes out of the things I sent to her.

Life with Georgie

Life with Georgie is interesting to say the least. I know that he knows that he runs this home. What is wrong with that you ask? Well Georgie is a cat. Granted a big 18+ pound cat and he rules the roost. Why else would I open the door at 8 am before I have had coffee, just so he can look out the door. He nips and picks and pulls until I get out of the bed and do what he wants. He sits in front of his bowl and meows and tells me when its time to feed him. He even made the point that just because the food bag was the right one, and yes he knows, did not mean it had the right food in it. Yes life with Georgie is very interesting and I would not have it any other way.
Hugs and Love,
Shari and Georgie

Been a long time coming . . . . .

It seems like forever I said I am going back to school. Well I finally did that in 2009 and that is why I have not blogged in forever. But school is done. Yeah me! Beads never really became unimportant to me but time was more precious and blogging took a back seat. I think somethings just don’t stick the first time around but mange to the second. Hopefully blogging will stick the second time. So check back often I plan to be posting new blogs weekly.

Hugs and Love,

Shari

It seems like forever I said I am going back to school. Well I finally did that in 2009 and that is why I have not blogged in forever. But school is done now I have an AAS in Computer Science, and an AAS in Business Management. Yeah me! Beads never really became unimportant to me but time was more precious and blogging took a back seat. I think somethings just don’t stick the first time around but manget to the second. Hopefully blogging will stick the second time. So check back often I plan to be posting new blogs weekly.
