I probably should have asked this question when I was making the bead soup, but ... I got distracted so I'm asking now. Did you find yourself grabbing a bunch of the same beads to put in the soup? Or did you grab less? I made sure to have at least two of the same kinds of beads but I didn't include more than 10 of the same type. I suppose this may depend on the preferences of the swapper and swappee? What do you guys think?

I think I just got overwhelmed Cheesy

Initially I was grabbing a few beads here and there, then I just started shoving them in there.  I have some large focal items in there, and some medium items, chips, cube or triangular beads.  I lost track and got confused by all the beady goodness I was surrounded in on the bed.

I love the imagery here  Cheesy  I wish I could be surrounded by beady goodness all the time!

But as for the original question, I did a mix of both.  Usually only a few of the bigger beads, and bunches of smaller ones.  Because really, what are you going to do with like, three little pearls? Smiley

Hi Ladies,
Just checking in to remind you all that tomorrow is our send out date for this swap!  If you are going to be late, please let your partner and I know ASAP.  Ok, back to work for this little girl today!  (Where did my 3 months of summer break go?!?!?!)

yikes! Will definitely have mine in the mail tomorrow!

Everything's all ready to go, but our post office closes before I get out of class. Hopefully I can get in and out of fee payment quickly tomorrow so I can still make it to the post office on my lunch break!
