Kalmbach Bead Soup Blog Hop - Winners Revealed!

 
We have finally come to an end of a journey, many of us moving on to others. Some taking a rest before the hustle of the holidays. To see all of the contestants and get a better appreciation of the talent involved you should head over and check out the Kalmbach Bead Soup Creations Album.
 
These are the first round of winners, the round authors picks! Lori Anderson, has to pick her favorites. These lucky people win a bead soup kit, provided by Lori Anderson www.beadsoupkits.com, how exciting! I love the soups Lori puts together. I will definitely watch for their creations and blog about them at a later date.
 
 
 
 
 
The next round of winners were office picks. These winners will receive the new book, Crystal Jewelry Inspiration from the Create Your Style Ambassadors. This book will be available in January. http://www.kalmbachstore.com/67019.html
 

 
 
 

There were just so many beautiful pieces, there had to be more winners. Here are three more random winners. These winners will receive a autographed copy of Anna Elizabeth Draeger's new book, Great Designs for Shaped Beads. http://www.kalmbachstore.com/64957.html
 
 
 
 
 
 
After adding all the votes from facebook and those tallied from the office the final winners are selected.
 
I was stunned to find myself one of them!
 


I don't know that I can ever express the pleasure and joy I have experienced, just being able to participate. The joy of a bead soup is definitely one all beaders should experience at least once in a lifetime. I have been blessed to be in four soup/swap events and several other challenges since June. What a ride and all because I stumbled upon Lori Anderson's Bead Soup and participated in Bead Soup Blog Party - 6 - this was definitely a defining moment in my life.

Thanks for sharing a part of your day so that I can share a part of my life.

Be good to yourself and those around you and go make the world a better place by creating beauty wherever and however you can!
