3rd Bead Soup Blog Party reveal is this Saturday -- and Kalmbach is throwing a Bead Soup party on Facebook!

This Saturday is the final installment of the 6th Bead Soup Blog Party.  I can't believe how many people joined in this time, and am already looking forward to the Jan/Feb time frame for the next one!  Just in case you missed it, I am ONLY going to be having this party once a year from now on, so I do hope to see you in Jan/Feb.

In addition to the traditional blog hop, Kalmbach, my publisher, is launching the book with a Facebook Bead Soup hop.  Multiple bead shops are donating their beads for you to work with, and on a certain date, you'll post on Facebook.  Want to learn more?  Click here to sign up, and visit https://www.facebook.com/KalmbachJewelryBooks to keep up with the various soups!

I still have some books left for sale (over on the right side bar there) which included three free tutorials unavailable to anyone else, and it includes shipping to the US!  International orders will be billed a 7.50 charge to cover Priority Mail.

As for this weekend's soup -- I've been really pushing myself!  I've played with copper, torn apart about three macrame creations (I need to see someone actually DO the stitch rather than read it) but I've ended up with some unique things.  I'm not done, but I'm on my way!

  1. I so want a copy of this book but I have to wait until I see what my paycheck looks like.

  2. I can't wait to see what you've made. I know everything will be fabulous!

    I've already thrown my name in the hat for the Kalmbach Facebook Bead Soup and crossing my fingers.

  3. I must say, that is a brilliant way to promote your upcoming book! What a creative publisher they are :)

    I've already signed up and my fingers are crossed I'm one of the lucky few!

    I can't believe the third reveal is Saturday-I can't wait to see what people have done.

    Looking forward to the reveals! I also have added myself to the Kalmbach Bead Soup entries. Wish me luck! :)

  5. I've signed up for the Kalmbach Bead Soup party. And I'm hoping to get a copy of your book soon. I'm anxious to see what everyone thinks of my BSBP pieces this weekend in my reveal, also. And already looking forward to the next party in Feb.

  6. WOW you have really taken this Bead Soup Party to a whole new level! I love being a fan but maybe just maybe it is time to soup it up!

  7. Since I won't be at Artbliss to get a signed copy from you, I just ordered one. I haven't participated in the bead soups recently because of the timing, August we are in full swing at the restaurant and no time and Jan/Feb we are away and then getting ready to reopen for the season, bad timing for me, miss being a part of it!

  8. It’s truly a nice and useful piece of info. I am satisfied that you shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.
