7th Bead Soup Blog Party: The Soup!

It's been quite some time since we got our partners for Lori Anderson's 7th annual Bead Soup Blog Party. Due to circumstances beyond both of our controls, my partner Kelly and I had a little issue getting each other our prospective soups; life just happened and our soups were put on the backburner.

Pun somewhat intended.

Thankfully, we were able to get our soups to their homes and I for one couldn't be happier with what Kelly sent me!

A mixture of greens and blues with handmade copper components, this soup is downright magical. Especially with the handmade copper bound book focal Kelly made for me--I nearly cried when I saw that beauty!

"Once upon a time. My story by KP. And they all lived happily ever after."

I told Kelly she doesn't realize how appropriate and meaningful that gorgeous pendant is in regards to my crazy life. I definitely can't wait to give that pendant a perfect home so it can be a reminder to me everyday no matter where my story leads, we'll all live happily ever after in the end.

Now I'm just waiting on an Amazon shipment of copper wire to dive into this blue and green sea of bead and copper goodness!

On to the bad news...Do you remember that sneak peak I put up of the soup I sent Kelly awhile back? Unfortunately I must have misplaced or accidentally deleted the pictures because I can't find them anywhere! If Kelly posts pictures of her soup, I'll see if I can snag one and post it up here.

Regardless, I can't wait until our reveal to share what I make and see what Kelly makes from what I sent her ^.^

Did you get your soup already? Leave a link so I can visit and fawn over it!
