As the hostess for the Bead Soup Blog Party, and this party covering three "mini" parties, I have three partners. I've already blogged about Patti Vanderbloemen, and Marcia Dunne, and today I'm going to show you what my August 25th partner, Cece Cormier sent to me.
Cece makes some awesome macrame jewelry that's always inspired me, and she sent me a huge soup that is full on inspiration! But first the cute packaging!
The contents were pretty amazing -- and daunting. I do love pink -- but I'm not entirely sure what I will make (which is a good thing).
First, thread to use and learn macrame with!
Love these colors so much!
This is nearly all of it. Matching Raku beads for the one pendant
didn't show up on Picture Day.
I have two focals to work with, one easier than the other:
And I loved the wrapping paper!
Totally appealed to my "Oh-I-still-wished-I-lived-in-Asia" side.
This is what I sent to Cece:
Marsha Neal ceramic, copper and crystal, cool Czech glass I picked up from the Bead and Button Show, waxed cotton, DMC thread, pietersite, and dyed shell. I hope she likes it, but I know that with her skills, she'll rock anything.
