So many great soups & beady goodness!  Y'all are so talented!

Now for my goodies Cool....

I received from Tero today! Grin 

First, the Soup (click on smaller pics for larger view)





            

I love my soup!  I can't wait to sort! (I get a great pleasure out of sorting beads.)  I have a few ideas already sparking.


Now, The Bird Lady arrives...



Here she is.
What secrets does she hold?





An Egg!





Such a pretty egg...



Let's crack it! 
Don't be alarmed; she told me to....
though it is such a pretty egg.....
How can I not listen to the Bird Lady?

:::tap, tap, crack:::








The Bird Lady gave me the gift of Inspiration!  Thank you Bird Lady. Kiss  Sometimes Inspiration hides from me, but now I know where to always find it.


Kiss Kiss Kiss THANK YOU TERO!  I absolutely LOVE my package! Kiss Kiss Kiss

So many amazing bead soup packages!!!!

Tero - that vintage glass button you got from Cackle is drool-worthy!!  And what a pretty beaded purse Cackle made!!  I'm glad those glass beads from me arrived intact and that you're happy with your package.

Ceemonster - I'd be jealous of your book pendant if I hadn't gotten one of my own!   Cheesy  It's so cool!

Abbeeroad - I love the bracelet you received from ceemonster and the big leaf clasp is awesome!

Pinkleo - that Bird Lady has got such personality and how clever of Tero to package inspiration in that pretty egg!  It would have taken me a while to break that egg because it's so lovely!!

Sorry calixita, I didn't make the purse.....it was something I thought Tero would like, so I added it to the mix!

Oh my dear beadelicious friends, wait to you see what Killiam Creative sent to me!  I'm such a spoiled girl and you're all going to be filled with "Oohs" and "Aaahs" over the beautiful package!  There's so much goodness that I've had to break it down into sections.  Please be sure to click on the thumbnails to see the detail shots of all the prettiness.


The Pearls & Shells



The Glass, Fire Polished Glass, Czech Glass & Crystal

 

The Stone



The Metal Spacers, Bead Caps, and Charms




And then the crafted goodies!  Killiam spoiled me by building two pairs of earrings based off things on my wist.  The first is a nearly identical copy of a pair of earrings I've loved a while now.  The beads are such a deep luscious red and catch the light so well.


The second pair is actually based on a bracelet made of labrodite and garnets.  She swaped the garnet stones out for a nice deep amethyst crystal, and the results are stunning.  I wore them with a pretty purple dress today and got lots of complements!


And I got one of Killiam's beautiful stick pins!


Plus, she sent me a Beadalon tote bag!  It's already in my stack of reusable grocery bags in the car!  Cheesy

Thank you so very very much Ms. Killiam!  I'm so in awe of your package, and I'm so in love with all of my new goodies, that I can't even decide where to start with building new pretty sparklies!  You are such an amazing partner!  Every time I run one of these swaps, it does my heart so much good to see just how amazing generous my fellow Craftsters are.  Thank you for making my day dear!!!   Kiss Kiss Kiss

So much beady goodness in this gallery! 

Abbeeroad, those are really cool and creative jellyfish earrings!

Calixita - lucky girl on that pile in the center... Feeling all covet-y here... Smiley

Lissablair - what a fantastic haul!

Crassy - holy cow I need that bracelet in my life! Lucky girl. Smiley

Tero - how fabulous that the earrings and bracelet match! You definitely made out like a bandit with our partners.

Ceemonster - can I have that bag of carnelian, please? Hey, it never hurts to ask! Haha!

Abbeeroad - oh how I want to run my fingers through that soup! I love the favorites you picked, especially the dark red one near the top right corner. Yowza!

Pinkleo - oh my... I'm speechless... Love the metal leaves and that soup is To Die For. I know Tero tailored your soup to you, but the grabby hands in me hopes my package from Tero will have a few of your goodies, too. Now, the Bird Lady is absolutely beautiful, incredible, inspiring. And really neat, too!

Watch - what a cool jewelry organizer. I'm digging your bead soup, too... Especially those blue "wheels" and the white bones. Fun!

Wx2dzug - nice stash from both partners! Those monster earrings are hilarious. Smiley

I'm so glad you like it all, Jennie! I have to admit I will be making the labradorite and amethyst earrings for myself... Smiley Every time I go to a bed show I get another Beadalon bag - I'm glad you can use it, too!

Cheers,
Susan

Yay!!! Everyone's beads look so shiny and pretty!  lol I feel like a little kid in a candy store when I look at all the gallery shots.
And speaking of gallery shots, here is what I received from crassy_mcnasty!

First up, the crafted item:

A super-long pair of adorable earrings (seriously, they're like 5+ inches long!) ^_^

Next up, the "group" shot ^_^

helpfully sorted by watch_it_break, who also helped me take pictures because my camera is super-lazy

(somehow I missed getting the seed beads in anyof the close-ups, but they're in a big pile in the groupshot ^_^)


Here's a close-up of the glass, shell, and metal beads:

Those pearls in the  bottom right are already destined for a rosary Cheesy

And a close-up of the plastic, acrylic, and stone beads:

Those red  plastic bows are too cute!

And finally, a close-up of the focal pieces!

LOVE that octopus!

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable swap.  Thanks again to both my swap partners, jennieingram and crassy_mcnasty!
