You have to make whatever I draw...Part 2

So here we are again with another pair of earrings designed by my little girl!

And here's the finished article...I was allowed to use silver wire instead of black this time!

I'm really enjoying her challenges, who cares about spelling when you're being creative!

Bead Soup Blog Hop Party today!

Today is the 5th Bead Soup party organised by Lori Anderson of Pretty Things blog. You've got to hand it to her, these parties span the whole world and require an organisational genius to run them!

Because of the unwieldy nature of the last bead soup party, this one was limited to 200 participants and I was really sad not to be one of the lucky 200 to be randomly selected. But it's ok, bead soup parties are infectious and I've enjoyed hopping around as much as I enjoyed taking part in the previous two parties. I've seen some stunning soup mixes and found some new blogs to can never see or learn enough!

So, I thought I would share some of my favourite soups du jour with you....
