~~ Pretty Things -- The Community Blog! ~~

I'm so excited to launch this NEW Pretty Things blog community!

With the massive help of Ana of Liven Design, we worked together to create a blog that will hopefully appeal to a wider audience.  In those ovals at the top, you'll find:


and then of course

and


This main page won't change -- I'll still blog as I always have.  When there are new posts on the other pages, I'll start the post with links to those pages so you won't miss anything (but you're always welcome to browse!)

The Bead Soup Blog Party page will give the party a home, and my plan is to make it a hub for the ever-growing party.

All Cup of Bead Soup entries will go on its own page, with icons for all the participants to make them easily accessible.

The Quotes page will be updated daily.

YOU are an integral part 
of the D.I.Y page and the Guest Blogger page!
Visit those for my email 
and send in your ideas and requests!  
I want to see your work there!


I hope you enjoy the new blog format!



Lori Anderson creates jewelry for her web site, Lori Anderson Designs, and wrote the blog An Artist's Year Off.  She's also a contributor to Art Bead Scene.  She is also the creator of the Bead Soup Blog Party.
