Upcoming Jewelry and Beading Blog Hops

Just a quick reminder of two beading blog hops coming up soon.

First is the Memories and Thanks Blog Hop, which will take place on January 12th.  You can learn more about this blog hop by clicking here.

Technically, the deadline to sign up has passed, BUT, as this blog hop does not involve swapping beads, if you want to participate, you can email me by clicking here.

Next comes the Bead Soup Blog Party®, which is now only taking place ONCE A YEAR -- and sign ups are coming up fast!  You do NOT want to miss this one.  The last one had 400 beaders from all over the world, in all genres, in all skill levels, and the book about it (with tutorials and a gallery from past Bead Soupers) can be bought by clicking here.

To learn about this blog hop, click here.

To grab the button for your blog, click here.

You can also go back through the Bead Soup Blog Party's® page,  
and see what the past six blog hops have been like.  
You are guaranteed to meet a lot of jewelry designers 
and bead makers you've never met before, 
and you'll be inspired by all the creativity!

If you'd like to join the Facebook group Bead Soup Cafe, go to and click to join.  Due to Facebook rules, once the group got past a certain number of members, I couldn't change the group to a public group, so don't worry that it says private -- just a minor inconvenience that one day Facebook may get around the changing.  Here is the blog button for the group if you'd like to link it on your blog:

I have several other unique blog hops in store for the year, but these are the first two!  I hope to see you soon!

  4. Hi Lori, I am looking forward to your memories blog hop. I have my plan for what I am making & now that Christmas is over I will have time. I can hardly wait for the bead soup hop. I have learned a lot from the few hops I have done & it is so much fun. You have done so much for the beading community by showing us others who love beads the way we do. Thank you.

  5. I can't think of a better way to start the year than by joining the BSBP!
