A beading party with 500 new friends and I am invited! On February 2nd I will get my special partner with whom I will exchange "soups" made with wonderful and magical ingredients . . . BEADS! My challenge is to create a piece using these beads and perhaps a few from my personal stash and then share it on this blog (my reveal date will be assigned soon) with all my new friends! I have resolved this year to challenge myself more deeply so I will continue to grow as an artist and person . . . this is my very first challenge! Special thanks to Lori Anderson, the coordinator of this amazing project. Follow the link below for more information on this wonderful craziness and stay tuned to my blog for updates on my creative imaginings!
