January is National Soup Month!

Did you know that January is National Soup Month?
Did you know that January 22 is National Soup Swap Day?
What do you do on National Soup Swap day? Make soup, of course!
You make a big pot of your favorite soup and you call up some friends. That's what you do! I love soup! Who doesn't? If you want to have a Soup Swap Party, you will find instructions on planning it here.

So how do Beaders celebrate National Soup Month? By throwing a Bead Soup Swap Party, of course!

Hurry on over to Lori Anderson's blog and sign in if you want to join in. This will be my third Bead Soup Party and I am looking forward to it. There are over hundred beaders participating, and the number keeps going up... This promises to be even better than the previous two, judging from the number of beaders signing up. You have till the 24th to get your name in to Lori.

Thank you Lori, for organizing this, and handling the monumental task of pairing us up, emailing us, and all the nitty, gritty details that go into making sure all goes well.

Here are pictures of the jewelry I made from beads sent to me by my previous Bead Soup Partners. It really is challenging to work with beads that I did not choose myself, but the results can be so surprising, so gratifying and beautiful too!

February 2010
My partner was MaryMcGraw and she sent me this stunning ceramic pendant and some of the beads you see in my dragonfly necklace.

June 2010

My bead soup partner was Shannon of Missficklemedia. She sent me the spectacular Jasper focal bead and the wonderful Shibiuchi flower clasp.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the party!

Regina, love both of your soups! I've never participated in the soup party before. Pondering joining in the fun. Any suggestions?

Hi Regina. Trying to stop by as many blogs as I can that are participating in the Bead Soup. Just wanted to drop by and say Hi. Can't wait to see what you will create.
