BEAD SOUP BLOG PAR-TY-YIPEE!!

Good Morning Everyone!!
     What is the saying the 36th time is the charm??? I sure hope so!! I am experiencing technical difficulties!! I tried to set my blog up to post at 5:00 a.m. this morning and all heck broke loose. I must say Blogger and I do have a love/hate relationship- and-  I do get hiccups-and-  of course my blog had to choose Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party to get those hiccups!... Well let's hope this will all be  behind us and my blog will save and I will be able to post it...NOW ON WITH THE SHOW:
     
          Welcome to my Bead Soup Party Page!! The hostess of the Bead soup blog Party is the  wonderful and ever-so-helpful Ms. Lori Anderson! Being a newbie to the party I cannot say enough about how well executed, and easy to follow everything has been. You can follow this link and it will take you to all the other participants of the party and their lovely creations: http://lorianderson-beadsoupblogparty.blogspot.com/
              Now let's talk about that necklace up there!! This is the necklace I made with all the ingredients my  BSBP partner, Anitra sent me. I decided to Crochet all the beads into a necklace and then wrapped the Crocheted beads in Burgundy Greek Leather And  Varigated Hand Spun Silk. I made a Lariat Design with the toggle clasp Anitra Sent me, and accented the toggle with the focal bead and some beaded charms that I made.I  made a charm out of the butterfly Anitra sent and included it half way down the toggle Accent.
              My partner Anitra is From North Carlolina , and I had a great time getting to know her and becoming friends with her during this whole creative process. You can find her blog at: http://www.leelucreations.blogspot.com/.
.....ok now, I am going to stop while I am ahead because I almost lost this whole thing again while trying to add a photo of Anitra's beads when she sent them to me. I will post that photo seperately.
                       THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING!!
