Hi everyone! I am so sorry that I have been MIA during the past couple of weeks. I've had reconstruction surgery to my right foot and had no idea of what kind of pain came along with the surgery! So I am slowly digging out of the email pile and updating my blog. The big reveal for The Bead Soup Party is here!!! For those that have not heard of this before: you receive a partner somewhere in the world and you exchange beads and a few required pieces to create a project. My partner, Tammy Adams, is from Maryland and not far from where I grew up and lived for 30 + years! Boy it is a small world. You can find Tammy on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PaisleyLizardDesigns and she has her own Etsy store. See her website for additional info: http://PaisleyLizard.com
You can also find her on Facebook: (https://www.facebook.com/PaisleyLizardDesigns)
