8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party
This is my where do I start?!?

I was partnered with Mary Ellen who is an outstanding designer from Alberque, New Mexico.. Mary Ellen has been beading for a number of years. She is an avid crafter.  My "soup" arrived on Saturday and it was all I could do to contain my excitement! I tore open the Bo's only to find a book or what I thought was a book. Much to my surprise it contained a treasure trove of goodies!  They were beautifully wrapped and identified. Enough of the chatter, here is what I received..
