More Goodies Coming Your Way~!

(New post at Lemon, Sugar, Hold the Lyme -- just click here.)

You will not BELIEVE the things I'll be giving away and coordinating sooOooOOnnnnn!

A gift certificate from -- beautiful masquerade masks and a very generous gift certificate. I sent them photos of Zack in the mask I bought from them for Zack's black and white masquerade ball, and they loved them, took a look at my blog, and thought we could come up with something fun for you.

I also have some VERY good jewelry design books that I'm very excited about. One, in fact, I was so anxious to get I pre-ordered it!

I'll have the 9th Bead Soup Blog Party badge and info up soon. I hope people will be in the mood for it!

Petty packaging.

Pretty beads! 

A beautiful focal and special clasp are required.
Coordinating beads are sent to help give the recipient some ideas, 
but they don't have to be used, and you can make as many pieces as you want.

Information about the party

Past Parties 
(We've had eight so far, with nearly 500 participants!)

(Party #6)

(Ignore the header -- that was for the last party, and I have to take a year off as
I battled and continue to battle Lyme disease.)

I'll also be giving away something I adore and have long since it became a huge trend -- coloring. I have a huge new container of Crayolas, the largest they've made, and I haven't opened them yet. I 'm waiting for when less is on my plate and I can PLAY! I love the smell of a new box of crayons. Now, that's not to say I haven't been eyeing as set of markers that cost nearly $200 but that is not going to happen. Nope. But that's OK!

152 CRAYONS!!!!
Click here to get them!

In between that is card-sending, gift wrapping (or rather, the easy way -- gift in a gift bag, tissue paper, ribbon, tah dah!

OK, I'm getting to where I can't see a danged thing. Good night to all, and to all a good night.


  1. I have been eyeing up that box of crayolas for over a year I think!

  2. Count me in sweetie for sure

  3. Looking forward to the fun.

  4. I am waiting for the next Bead Soup.
    I love it , I had so much fun with the last two.

  5. Yeah! I am so excited about the next Bead Soup Blog Party. Zack looks cool in his mask. I bought a set of colored pencils and a Tessellation Patterns coloring book, but I have only played a little bit. It is fun though.

  6. I am so excited! I've been wanting to do a bead soup for YEARS! It's on my 101 goals in 1001 days list which ends this summer. I am in for sure.

  7. Zach has a really cool mask, love the smell of fresh crayons too. Can't wait for the next bead soup, I always got such interesting partners.

  8. More awesomeness from Lori! Fun!

    I too have always loved to color, way before it was trendy.
    Robert Fulghrum said, in one of his books, and I paraphrase...that crayons could save the world. If we dropped crayons instead of bombs, we would have world peace, because no one can resist a fresh box of crayons. Yep, I believe it.
