WOW.  That's kind of all I can say right now.  WOW.  I got so spoiled, I'm not sure what to do with myself.  I want to dive in and start crafting with all my new toys, but I know I have to be a good girl and post pictures first!

Let's see, where to begin...

First, a hot and delicious cup of bead soup!


Next, what could be better than a whole bowl of button goodness?


A detail shot of a few neat buttons and beads:


Headpins, silver spacers, and blank tiles to make pendants:


Chandalier connectors, BEAUTIFUL beatle wings, rose quartz, and


A bundle of adorableness; ceramic owls, glass flower, bunny, carrot, mushroom, eyes & hearts, silver moon, owl, and sew machine charms, and cute little acrylic owls:


A-FREAKIN'-MAZING focal pendants, right off my wist:


Close up of the faerie pendant:


Close up of the Green Man bead:


My beautiful handmade goodies, a lovely sewing bookmark, and sweet owl earrings:


THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU TERO!  I've been feeling all sickly and gross for a few days now, and was all curled up on my couch, when my dear husband went to get me cold medicine, and found your package in our mailbox and brought it back in to me.  When he got back from the store, I was still playing with it all, and made him look at all my treasures too!

I am so happy you liked everything. Smiley I was kind of nervous to get you as a partner so I am happy that you liked what I sent. I was pretty excited when you had so many things on your wist that I had just hanging out in my house. Smiley I made the fairy pendant as well.
It was a ton of fun putting it together for you. Hope you get to make wonderful things with it all soon. Smiley

I received from babiestarlite13 yesterday!

I had everything arranged in neat little piles and then my cat thought they looked fun so they aren't that organized in the pic. The cloth came from her too! It's vintage and has little cross-stiitch fruits printed on it.
There are cell charm dangles, bottle caps, sequins, neato-burrito stripey beads, twirly and swirly brown beads and a bunch of other fun stuff.



Here's a closeup of the pretty red bracelet I got too!



I don't know what I'm going to make yet.  I just know I feel inspired to make . . . SOMETHING!  I don't know about y'all but I swear I sit and stare at my beads for hours before I get a good idea.

THANK YOU!  BABIESTARLITE13!

I'm so glad you liked everything!!  That wine cork should have a hole in it for you to use as a bead.  I sent a few days ago for the cocktail swap and thought u guys might enjoy having a cork to play around with too!

Here is my round of Bead Soup, part one Smiley

I received from HB2K (also known as Hotty_blond2000)

Here is a picture of selected glass/acrylic beads from the soup ( part had come in a bag but it had ripped during transit Sad )

The three dark teal teardrop beads and the aqua bead caps are my faves at the moment.


Some odds and ends including a big strand of millefiore chips


Most of the rest, seed pearl like ones, seed beads, and more millefiore chips, I have not had a chance to sort the rest so here is my stew


And two pairs of pretty earrings


Thanks for sharing Hotty_blond2000!

Alright... both of my partners packages arrived on the same night!! I was up super-late sorting through everything and giggling maniacally. This is a great swap for me... I don't really make jewelry, but use random beads in a lot of other projects. I always hate having to buy a whole pack of beads when I only need three pink or whatnot...

Firstly, from babiestarlite13! Everything can wrapped in this great pirate fabric... I think I'm going to make a zippered pouch out of it. One can never have too many zippered pouches. Then, she made me this fabulous bracelet! That green is the exact color of my favorite hoodie... so it'll get worn all the time!



Then... onto the great soup- check out these great beads!! Sorry for no close-ups, but I forgot to take any in my mad rush to sort everything. Wink



---------------------------------

Next... my stash from Tero! For starters... this great bookmark and bracelet... These (along with most of the soup) are in the sea colors I asked for!



Here's the soup:



And here are some of the great focal beads that I did manage to snap a picture of. That owl bell was straight off my wists AND Christmas list. Now... if only I could remember what I wanted to make with it...



Lastly, here is a fun assortment of buttons! I think we ought to do a Button Soup swap. Smiley



--------------------------

Thanks to both of my partners!! I feel so spoiled and happy. I've been sitting at my craft table sorting them and purring like a contented cat.  Cheesy
