Oh no. Heavens no.
This book is about all of you have participated in the past Bead Soup Blog Party® blog hops, and it's about the talent of the 25 contributors who joined me in bringing this book to pass. Whether it was their talent for creating beads and soups or their talent for creating jewelry tutorials, everyone is appreciated and should be celebrated -- and that's what this Bead Soup Book Blog Tour is all about.
Starting tomorrow, come here to see who is on the list for the day, who will be giving their take on their tutorial or bead soup. Each person will be giving away something, from books to beads to discounts in their stores. Each day, leave a comment here and on the other participants blogs to win -- and for every post you make, you'll be in the running for the Grand Prize, some of which is shown here:
:: Faux sea glass donated from Z-net Shows
:: Cultured pearls and a large brass toggle
:: Handmade necklace from the BSBP6 donated by Sandi Volpe
:: Fiskars square and round mandrel and two nail files for metal work
:: Heavy-duty utility apron with "I'm a Bead Souper"
:: Handmade notebook with lampwork bead accents
:: Tacky Glue for your tool kit
:: Color palettes donated by Brandi Hussey
:: Polymer clay pendant donated by Erin Prais-Hintz
:: Wooden bangle Bead Soup Kit
Plus you never know what might end up in the box!
So please join me all this week in celebrating the book launch
and the amazing people behind the book
without whom it could never have happened.
