Got my Bead Soup package from my partner, Michelle Burnett, today. Here is a quote from her blog, "She paints, she beads, she cooks, she collects, she knits! Coming from a long line of DIY-ers, she was born to craft!"
Not only is she talented, as evidenced by her blog Reverie and Revival, and an amazing artist, she calls this her "Old Art Blog", but drop dead gorgeous.
My goodies came packaged in a lovely box tied with an extra surprise of angel wings (could easily add these to my "to do list"), with the sweetest note from her explaining her most generous contents.
I opened the box to find an absolute treasure trove of beads. Turquoise, my all time favorite to work with, and a plethora of orange beads for contrast, something I have not thought of using. The focal she included combined both colors, and that along with the awesome toggle clasp and findings she added completed a total package that will have me in creation heaven for weeks.
