Soon I'll get to find out who I'll be partnered with in the 4th bead soup blog party. There are 363 participants this time. I was amazed at the number of participants there are. This will be my first, can you tell I'm excited. I love to get new beads, all the better when the inspiration comes from a fellow bead artist. I'll get a focal, a clasp and some accent beads. I can't wait.
