It's Time for Lori Anderson's 7th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party...And To Meet My Partner, Jean Yates!!

Good Morning Y'All~
      ~I have been abit buried-Quite literally! Under  3 FEET of snow!! Charlotte did a great job at putting everything into a major stand still. Our car is still buried with a 4 foot drift of snow around it- Yup that is my car!! We finally got plowed yesterday evening, and now I am at the mercy of my poor 16 yr. old daughter to be able to dig out the car. It is definitely going to take her a couple of days to get all that snow moved, so I am definitely housebound until Friday...Boo Hoo!!! I want out!!!

         But this blog post is about Lori Anderson's 7th Bead Soup Blog Party and my partner, Jean Yates! Here is her blog: and her facebook page:!/jyatesnewyork?fref=ts  Please go check them out!  I am so excited to have Jean as a partner because she seems as though she is a very warm, approachable, loving person with no B.S. beans about her! Turns out, Jean is in N.Y. and just a stone's throw from me in  Ct.! -How cool is that? Maybe someday we might actually be able to meet! I decided to just go with what I feeling when it came to the colors I was going to send Jean for her bead soup. Whether they are colors she loves or is familar with, I think she will still have alot of fun with the "ingredients" reguardless. I got such a great feeling from Jean from the very first intro, I feel as though it is really important that she enjoys her "mice en place" I Cannot wait to see the gorgeous creations Jean comes up with! I love suprising people, and I love suprises too- that is just one of the reasons why this hop is so much fun!
                                       So stay tuned, and follow along, maybe you'll want to participate in the next Bead Soup Blog Party!!My next post will be a cryptic photo of the "ingredients" that Jean is getting-make sure you come and check it out- I bet you won't be able to tell a thing! ...I hope!!
                                        So, until then, have a great day, and let your creative self shine!
