Small Swap Surprise from Suzann, Ssssss!

Look what I found in my Mailbox today -- -- --
I opened it and felt like Aladdin in the Cave with all this beadie-goodness.

This is from a continuation of Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Swap revealed in February. We just could not get enough of the suspense and anticipation of a swap, so we sent off boxes filled with beads to our partners (the boxes were supposed to be large matchboxes or something of similar size). Check out Suzann's blog: Beadphoria.

Anyway, look at all the lampwork glass beads and pearls, and glass. There is even a strand of tiny quartz hearts.
Look closer! Mmmm! There is a whole lot of inspiration on my plate! ;^)

YUM! That platefull of yummys should keep you awake until the wee hours with visions of sugarplums dancing in your head.

I keep reading about this matchbox challenge and I am bummed that I didn't get in. I am not, apparently, invited to the party, although I have tried. If I was in before I apparently somehow lost the connection...I will keep trying because I miss all of you! This looks like a fun stash to have. I think these swaps are just too cool. Thanks for sharing, Emanada! Enjoy the day! Erin

That's exciting! She was my swap partner in the original bead soup - and she sent me a lot of goodies then too :)
