8th Bead Soup Party Began

I received the following soup from my partner, Mary Howell Govaars. I loved what I received.  I dug into it right away and by combining the soup with additions from my collection I was able to make quite a few pieces – Thank you Mary Govaars.

Mary sent my bead soup in beautiful packag (blue satin bag) and 2 bars of delicious chocolate.  One is gone and I am still eating an occasional bite of the second one.

Mary sent me some “bonus” beads, which I did utilize in my projects.

I had one white pearl and one blue pearl remaining from the BEAD SOUP Mary sent.  I am pondering a ring??  But cannot include in my reveal because I have not made it yet and definitely was not done by the deadline. I was a busy girl and had a blast.  The soup I received was perfect for my taste and abilities.

Thank you Mary Govaars for making this so fun and worthwhile.

Additionally I want to thank Lori Anderson for the opportunity to participate.  I am heart broken that I was not able to participate by the deadline.  I was so pleased with my soup, I dug into it and did not stop until I had nothing left.

My computer will not stay on.  Luckily I had updated my external harddrive where I was able to locate most of my pictures.  As best I can tell there are 2 – 3 pictures of projects I cannot locate.  I will edit my reveal when I retake those pictures.  I have not mastered photography yet and I do not have any editing software on my son’s old laptop (the computer I am now using).

My next post will be my reveal.  I will be posting multiple pictures of most projects because I have not mastered photography skills, nor have I learned the best method of showing the best features of a project.  I do quite well when I can edit and crop.

Unfortunately, I am having severe computer issues and have been unable to post pictures. I will try again Sunday, May 4th, if you want to check back to see what I created.

I do realize photos where to be posted by 12am.
