Whew! I've been making jewelry.......

If you will look at my previous post last, you will see all of the goodies that Judy Turner sent me for the Bead Soup Blog Hop July 2012 Project.  I also said that my personal goal was to use everything she sent.......

Well, with the exception of the howlite skull beads and the bone beads in the center of the photograph in the previous post (I am waiting on materials specially ordered for that project), this is all that is left.


I have made a necklace, bracelet and earring set, a necklace, and five pairs of earrings.  There is ONE yellow seed bead left....lol.....what fun I've had.  My husband is out of town and I stayed up until 4:00 this morning making jewelry.  I was having so much fun.....I haven't stayed up like that in a long time, but I was not tired at all and so having fun -- I just went with it.

It was hard on Jebadiah, Justice and Sophie, however.  They wanted to go to bed and wouldn't go without me.  Poor things......we slept until 9:30 this morning.  In fact, they are asleep right now!   I guess I'll have to wake them up for supper after while.  And, I bet we all sleep good tonight.  I have no such plans for this evening.

I can't wait until July 31 when I can show you the things I've made with Judy's soup.  As is the purpose of the Blog Hop, it is nothing like my normal style -- lots of flowers and sparkly things.  Stay tuned.....

I am so happy you have enjoyed the soup! I love to have people smile when they are being creative. I love to share in artsy stuff and I have found this to be one of the best and most fun ways to do so. I love love the soup you sent to me. I discovered those little sugar beads have a hidden sparkle that is so beautiful and the crackled topaz is so different! Thank you!

Jean, I can hardly wait to see what you've done and I'm feeling the same way, I want to show what I've done!

You've got me drolling already Jean. I can't wait to see waht you've created with your soup. I've been working on mine too and I've done something surprisingly traditional. Who'd of thunk!
