The Soup is officially On!!

Saturday morning I awoke to find a tiny little package on my front porch that Santa's elves (aka Joseph the mailman) had left for me.   Christmas had found its way to my doorstep and the above is what Santa (ie Karen Williams of Seattle, WA) sent me!!  The large center bead was hand-beaded by Karen and the compenent beads are fabulous.  She even included the beautiful hand-dyed papers that these little goodies are set upon (future mixed media painting material).  So -- the challenge begins as I allow the beauty of these tiny wonders start to magically morph into an enticing jewelry design in my mind.  So many many possibilities.  I can't wait to start playing :-)


  1. I am soooo happy you like the package, because the soup mix you sent me is fantastic! It's currently simmering quite happily.
