And the Winner Is!

Ali McCarthy of Northwoods Creative Studios.

This has been such a great idea and I can't thank Lori enough for including me in not only the book but this Contributor's Hop.

I got to look at all the wonderful things that were offered and all I can say is WOW. 

I would love to see what everyone makes with their goodies so make sure you post and let us see.

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!
