Bead Soup Arrived

A very generous helping of Bead Soup arrived in my mailbox today. Why is it that my partner received her package from me within a week from Canada but it took hers to me from the U.S. more than twice that long? I was getting anxious about its arrival. It had been so long since she sent it.

I could hardly wait to tear into the package the moment I got home. I did stop long enough to take a photo of the box it came in.

I held my breath in anticipation as I opened the box. Lots of goodies awaited, all individually packaged in small ziplock bags. I pulled each of them out and poured out the contents.  So many wonderful ingredients combined to make this special Bead Soup.

Now it’s time to get the creative brain working on a design or two that will do justice to all these fabulous components. I have some ideas brewing already.

Thank you, Shai. I am delighted with my Bead Soup. It's going to be so much fun to work with.


  1. A beautiful soup you got yourself there! Can't way to see what you make out of it.

    P.S. the wait is happening most likely at the border :)

  2. Such pretty beads, I'm sure you can't wait to get creative, Bonnie! I just had to comment on your "mail reception issue"... I have always found it took 2-4 weeks for most parcels originating in the U.S. to reach me in Atlantic Canada. It was only when I took part in a swap last fall that I noticed how lopsided deliveries were. What I sent got to the States in about 5 days, surprisingly; I believe it took 2 weeks by postage date to get my stuff from the same address (a large Midwest city). I regularly get parcels from Europe, the U.K., South Africa, even Australia and China in under 10 days. Go figure!

  3. Hi Bonnie, you have a great soup to bead with!!! LOL I think you will have a blast!Love the colors and the focal and just everything!!!

  4. I am so glad that you liked your soup and I can hardly wait to see what you do with it.

  5. Oh, what yummy bits! I know whatever you make will be awesome. Can't wait!

  6. Your soup is inspiring! I'm doing my first bead soup now and I had no idea what to expect.I am having a ball. This reveal is going to be like Christmas presents...for days. :-D Later, Billi
