The Soup is Simmerin'

Delicious Ingredients

My soup mix from  Melissa Mesara arrived this week !
I am THRILLED ! Her lampwork beads are Gorgeousssssssssssssss!!!
She even made me a darling  little manatee !
I named her "Sassy "after Homosassa Florida were I  met the manatees.

In the past I have challenged myself to use all of my soup goodies in one design.The bead soup rules  only require that we use the focal bead and the clasp .We are allowed to make as many pieces as we like.
But,I have always had fun trying to make all my ingredients fit into one"pot". However, this time I have two ideas in mind. I have one plan for"Sassy".I want to make something special,so I can see her everyday.
I have another design idea for those wonderful glass beads.

 I'm in the second soup group. I have until the April 6 reveal date to bring my design ideas to life . I hope the ideas in my head will work out when I actually have the beads on the table. Sometimes I have a vision.But ,the beads seem to have a mind of their own.
We'll see if that happens with my new soup plans !
In the meantime, I am excitedly waiting for the first group reveal on March 30  
This week feast on beautiful beadie inspiration
