Bead Soup & other Bizniz

This is my pretty soup, but you can't see it yet because I'm mean.

A week ago I came home from the Philly bead show tired and wearing my cranky pants. While I was away my bead soup arrived. It was waiting for me. It pulled my cranky pants right off. I admit a cold glass of pinot grigio had already unzipped my cranky pants- but opening this lovely box of beads made them drop right to the floor.
I should mention who my soup partner is, her name is Jen Judd Velasquez. If you don't know of her you should definitely check out her work. She is very talented, and she is also in the Air Force which makes her extra cool. I am very excited to start stirring my soup.

Speaking of the Philly bead show, I was overwhelmed by all the wonderful friendships that were enriched there and the new ones that were started up from scratch. There are few things that make me happier then beads and beadie friends.

News for August

I will be at the Bead Fest in Philly in a couple of weeks. Pleaser take note of the NEW LOCATION.
I promise I will be in a better mood then I was in Ann Arbor. I realize I have probably scared many potential customers away with my last post. I blame the heat. Seriously it was like "this is your brain on drugs" but the egg was sizzling from the heat, not from any drugs. I probably wouldn't have been so cross if I had been high.
I would be all "dude my brain is melting and I see pretty colors everywhere"

Also I have signed up for the fabulous Bead Soup Blog Party again. This is hosted by the super talented and kind Lori Anderson.
I have done it twice and had a wonderful experience both times. I can't wait to find out who my partner is this time around.

And I don't know if this is a secret or not- but I'll spill a little bit of the beans. The fabulous and handsome Andrew Thornton is going to be using my beads this month in a special thingie.
You will have to read his blog to find out more when he is ready to tell all.
