BSBP Sent: Here's what I cooked up!

UPDATE (Saturday, 7.7.12) NO soup yet and I am starrrvving! Guess I gotta go to the grocery store if I want any today! :(









So it's safe now...my BSBP partner, Jenny Vinberg of Sweden, has received and posted the Bead Soup that I sent her. Now I want you to get a look at it too!







 

 

So here are my ingredients...

 

 FOCAL Bead (handmade),





 

 

 

A few extra beads (handmade),


 



 


 

                                                          A little extra to spice it up,  





 

And the clasp (handmade).


 

 




 AND then just to make Jenny smile,

I added a few magnets I made...


 


And my kids think I can't cook...

                                well maybe just not in the kitchen!

Isn't this BSBHP6 way cool? So neat you have sent your lovely handcrafted art work to Sweden!!! Love the clasp, focal and beads you created! Your packaging is so cute too. It inspires me to make my packaging special. Jenny must be delighted!!:)

Thanks Marla. I hope my mailbox has some soup in it today!

Shelley Graham Turner said...

THanks again Marla...did you notice I sent a few little pieces of what you had sent me in our swap, they just were perfect for the color palette. AND I sacrificed ONE of the fabric/ribbon tie you had tied my goodies in...BTW, where did you get it? I love it!

Shelley Graham Turner said...

Love the "brownies" you received...when you going to reveal what you sent? Did I miss it?

Ginger Bishop said...

I love your packaging, your fabulous creations & your silly rabbit pieces. Why could I have not found your blog when I was living in Norfolk. Oh well!

Shawn Mills said...

I am really loving these hand made beads...beautiful mix...can't wait to see what you do with it....

Sherri Stokey said...

I thought I recognized that ribbon!! :) I got a little box tied up in it & saved it to use in something special! Lovely soup, Shelley - as if your talent with the beads isn't enough, you have to put the packaging over the top?

Tammie said...

Very cool, can't wait to see what Jenny makes of your goodies :-)

Charming Peggy said...

Your funny! I love the soup you sent!

Shelley Graham Turner said...

Thanks Sherri. I love playing with packaging, makes it much more fun to send as well as recieve! Appreciate the kind words Sherri!

Haha Ginger, when you were living in Norfolk I was probably still in New York, just retired here in March! OKINAWA! I love those round pieces you get from the beach. How can I buy some I want them just to display, wouldn't be able to part with them. I am getting ready to put some of my beach treasures in my etsy shop - I think the ocean-worn fragments are sooo beautiful and when I polish them they come to life!
