Look What I Got!

I got my bead soup from Skylar!


I was just blown away by her generosity. I feel like I should send her more beads.


Check out this focal set and clasp. These are the "must use" components of the mix. the lampwork set is from Crystal Brashear. She is on vacation but you can always check her shop later.


Have you noticed the colors yet? The ones that are my favorite palette?


I may swoon!


This is truly bead porn, don't you think?


Seed beads! (As a matter of fact, I DO need more seed beads.)


There was also a lovely hand-written note from Skylar, some hard candy (snagged by T-man, but that's okay), and an added goody:


Look at this sweet little set! It reminds me of blue bonnets.


Okay, one final peek.


The big reveal is March 3. I do believe I'll be making something for myself. I haven't done so in a while, and I made a promise to T-man a while back that once a year I would make something that was solely for myself.

Be sure to keep checking in. I'll post updates with what I'm making. Tomorrow is trout fishing day (if it doesn't rain too much). Mmm - trout for dinner sure would be tasty. Cross your fingers. Until the next time, keep on beadin' on!

Thank you, ladies. She has truly overwhelmed me with what she sent and the photos do not do the stash justice! I am going to love working with these beads!

Jen, I know! She was incredibly generous, as I've said several times. I better come up with something FABULOUS, or I am no longer worthy to be a bead goddess!
