Bead Soup Book Give Away!

Once upon a time a very talented artist named Lori Anderson asked me and 24 other wonderful artist to participate in a wonderful book called the Bead Soup Book.


That was at least a 1 1/2 years ago and finally its going to be released! So to celebrate Lori is organizing some wonderful give aways from the participating artists and today I am one of the artist! Soooo leave a comment and I will pick a winner from the comments and announce who won either Oct. 8th or 9th.

Here is a picture of the Bead that is similar to the one in the book. It is just waiting to be grabbed up and made into something wonderful! ALSO I plan on adding some other goodies to go with the bead but they are a surprise!



So want to have a sneak peek at the book! First I was matched up with Lori and got a wonderful soup! 

When I first received it I was blown away by the wonderful clasp and the colors. You will have to wait to see the step by step.

 But here is a peek!


 I got to send beads to the wonderful Cassie Donlen. Cassie lives in the same town as me and I have known her for several years.  I was super excited to find out that she would be creating with my soup. She is so creative and talented. 

Here is the soup I sent her but you will need to go to her blog to get a peek at what she made.
All in all let me just say the book is wonderful. It is brimming with ideas and will get your creative juices flowing. I think it will be the book that will set the bar!

  8. Hi Libby I would feel bless if I won this awesome bead. Brandi Hussey asked us to pick a favorite from the book & I picked Cassie's necklace with the soup that you sent her. Pink is my favorite color so one of your pod beads in pink is over the top excellent. This book is one of the best bead books that I own. It has so many exciting designs from all different points of view. There is truly something for everyone, whatever your style. The last BSBP is the first that I participated in & I will be back for more.

  9. Beautiful! I so love your pods and the necklace that Cassie made with it is one of may favorites in the book. The treatment you used on the clasp you received is a perfect way to showcase something that deserves to be front and center. Happy to be on this Bead Soup journey with you! Enjoy the day. Erin
