My Partner, Lauren Potts Has Recieved her Bead Soup

Now I can show you the bead soup I sent to my partner, Lauren Potts. She's a fantastic jewelry designer who I've learned from already. These are her fabulous photos!


In the spirit of Spring coming soon, I decided to send my bead soup in eggs with assorted chocolate bunnies, a gumball machine and m & m's in the shape of a carrot.







Here's what Lauren found inside of the eggs.

  6. I love what you sent and what you received. I especially love the creative way you packaged it. I've been eating healthy for about a month and while I've lost 18 lbs. that candy makes me tremble. Yummmmmm.

  24. As usual, I am never surprised at the creative ideas this group has. How cute is that? I love this idea. You left a message on my blog and I tried to join yours. It would not let me. I will try again. I haven't looked around much yet as my grandson wants to play on my computer but I love the background on this blog. Thanks for the invitation. My Bead Soup hop is on the 6th of April. I am all ready. Cherrie
