That's All Folks....!

Well I 'think' I have visited all of the other 199 participants in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Hop to admire their handy work.... and Oh my, what amazing talent there is out there. It has been quite a humbling experience as well as quite tiring but Shed Loads of fun! Although the tiring bit could just be the man flu or the insomnia. No matter. I can relax a bit now! 

If you have not checked out my Bead Soup Partner's Fabulous Design,
This is an example of her lampwork. Beautiful!
Try her facebook fanpage too... she's only a few off 1,000 fans (hint hint!)

 I have been inspired by many things whilst 'hopping' and would like to thank All the participants for taking part and making it fun. Special thanks to Lori Anderson for all her hard work, especially with her being ill and in pain for most of it! Also, huge thanks to Dee Elgie for sending such a fabulous challenge pack for me to work with. I shall be returning to my comfort zone for a little while though, until I have recovered from it all and then I shall begin with the things I want to experiemnt with or take further: 
  1. Beaded Beads
  2. Wire Wrapping (especially having a go at making my own bead caps. Have no idea how yet...!)
  3. Mixed Media
  4. Allow my inner 'girlie' out a bit more
  5. Have a go at Vintage Glam
  6. Upcycle more
An upcycled piece I made in 2010

If I have not commented on your blog, please let me know and I'll pop over asap!


  1. Love that upcycled piece. It's so much fun making something new out of something old/vintage! Mom gave me some Sarah Coventry to play with and it was really fun to see her smiling face when I presented the new piece to her! Good job!

  2. Thanks Sandra! I think its one of my all time favourite pieces. Do you have a picture of your Sarah coventry made new? I'd love to see it :)
