Bead Soup & a Teaser

"There are no great people in this world, only great challenges which ordinary people rise to meet." ~ William Frederick Halsey, Jr.

I wanted to post a quick shout out to my friend Lori Anderson who has just revealed the cover of her upcoming book called "Bead Soup: 34 Projects Show What Happens When 24 Beaders Swap Their Stash":

I am delighted to share that I have a spot in the book! I was so excited to be paired with my partner, Miss Jennifer Cameron of Glass Addictions. I only know what I have done with my soup ingredients so this new title will be such a surprise to me when I see it! But I can't share any more with you, so you will have to wait for the reveal just like me!

I am so honored to be in a book with the following people:

Lori's next Bead Soup challenge is coming up on March 3rd. I am not playing this time around due to some other commitments that I have, but I am looking forward to seeing what beaders from around the world do with their swaps!

Are you ready for The Challenge?

Back in November I hosted the 2nd Annual Challenge of Color blog hop. This hop has been so well received I pledged that I would do one hop each quarter of the year. Well, tomorrow is the start of the next quarter!

I have been thinking about this for months, and I think that this new challenge will be one that will allow you to really show us your personality and style with your choices. I hope you will come back and join me.

I have been banging my head for days trying to create a blog button for it, and hopefully I will be able to do just that...soon...if I don't drop kick my computer to the curb first. Why do these techno things have to be so hard?

Stay tuned for the big announcement tomorrow...with or without a blog button!

Also, I'm really psyched about the color challenge. Color is one of my favorite things about designing. :)

Thanks for posting this, Erin! I wanted everyone to be surprised by the creations that were made with the things they sent, so even the participants will have a surprise in their hands when their book arrives!
