Bead Hoarders Blog Hop

The fabulous Lori Anderson is hosting another blog hop. No swops or partners are involved this time. Instead, we just use long-hoarded beads from our stash to make something. Or many somethings if we feel like it.

July and August are busy months for me and I'm a nut to think of even signing up, but the Hop sounds like too much fun to pass up. Plus I have loads of hoarded beads that need to come out and play. Hopefully this Hop will make me feel less guilty about my hoarding tendencies. The reveal date is 20 July, so do come back then to see what I end up creating. Your guess is as good as mine!

Winning.... not something I do a lot. So I'm always stunned, disbelieving and finally thankful when it happens. I'm especially gobsmacked and grateful this time around. Why? Because my Sparkly Scrap Shell that I made for the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party won itself the Out of the Box Award in Lori Anderson's BSBP7 contest.

I have no idea how it won when there were hundreds of other stunning creations. But I'm very very honoured to be among the winners. Thanks a million for picking my dish, Lori! And thank you June for giving me such a hoard of beautiful beads!
I now wait in anticipation of the certain-to-be awesome prize that is coming my way from Lori's very own stash. Woo-hoo! I can't wait! I promise to blog about the prize when it arrives. Till then, happy creating everyone!
