Bead Soup ingredients..

Here's the ingredients I will be sending out to my partner today, I know I am two days late, but had to be done. She's very close to me, so hopefully Canada Post will be on time!

I hope this photo is not too revealing, I wonder if she'll think I got her pink beads!! Maybe I did, mayby I didn't. It is supposed to be a challenge after all, right! But that would just be cruel.

Anyway, here's what will be going out today to Lynne of Islandgirl Insights. I like what I put together, it is totally me. I just hope Lynne likes it!!

Just playin' around...

on a gorgeous sunny Sunday. I decided to try out my camera and take a few shots of a couple of bracelets I've made recently. I haven't done this in a long time. I used to take photos of my cards ages ago but nothing since then. I had a beautiful sunny window to work with but I think I need to work on the zoom. These aren't close enough, I don't think.

Here's a little silver and pearl beaded bracelet. Just simple and easy, but I like it.

And here's another one, I used the black cinnabar beads and some wooden beads on this one.

And the final one is just three easy little stretchy bracelets, I love the colors of these beads.

Well, that's my first time posting any of my jewellry and after seeing all the players in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup I think I am a little out of my league. I didn't realize there was sooooooo much talent in the soup. My partner, Lynne Bowland, designs gorgeous beads. Her blog, Islandgirl's Insights, showcases how talented she is as I am sure most of you already know. I hope she's OK with having such a beginner like me as her partner. Well, I am sure it'll be a good learning experience for me. You all sure offer lots of inspiration.
Happy Beading,

Day One...

Day one on the blogging bandwagon again. Way back, when I was a cardmaker, I used to blog but haven't in two years less a week. Hope one or two stop by and have a look.

I am fairly new to the beading scene but love it. I need to have some sort of creative diversion in my life in order to keep me sane, I am sure many of you can relate.

Anyway, I'll try to be a good blogger and won't bore you with many mundane daily life details...
