Today is the perfect day for making soup, as it is cold and rainy in southeast Texas....something we experience
quite way too often this time of year.
But, instead of being "stuck" in the kitchen stirring a huge pot of warm simmering soup,
I am happily sitting in my studio,
working on "soup" goodies that will be wrapped and put into a box to be carted off to the post office early tomorrow morning.
It will be en route to Michigan, headed to my Bead Soup Blog Party partner,
I think her blog name caught my attention right off the bat,
Melissa is a lampworker.
Something I am not, or ever will be!
So how did I get here today?
A question asked of me by Lori Anderson, of Pretty Things, actually.
She is the originator of the Bead Soup Blog Party.
With all that extra time I have had since retiring (LOL),
I thought I would give this party a try....
me and around 209 other jewelry artists in the USA and way beyond!
So, here I am, doing what I love best~
putting together a lovely package of goodies.
And, because Lori has a heart of gold,
AND connections like PJ Tool and Supply,
she is having a few give-aways along the bead soup "party" road.
The first one is here, and the drawing is tomorrow.
And, since I am not a big metal stamper,
as you can probably see from above,
I want to win this cool set of stamps.
Maybe you do too!
You won't want to miss it.
When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life,
or in the life of another.
(I too love quotes. This one if for you Melissa =)
