Bead Soup Blog Party...Coming Soon!

Hey guys and gals! Ms. Lori Anderson over at Pretty Things is at it again. She's hosting another Bead Soup Blog Party (referred to as BSBP from here on out). Read more about that here. Sign ups are August 1-3.

A what, you are asking? A BSBP is where Lori pairs you up with a partner and ya'll send each other beads (or whatever but it must include a focal and a clasp) to create something fabulous with. On reveal day everyone blog hops checking out each other's work.

I recently did my first BSBP this spring. Honestly, I was intimidated. I mean, have you seen Lori's work??? :) I didn't know what to expect. I'm so glad I signed up because I can't tell you how inspiring it is. I never imagined the creativity that everyone put into their pieces. And it was a learning experience for me, seeing the different mediums that people incorporated into their jewelry. I highly recommend this to everyone from beginner to jewelry maker extraordinaire.

See you at the party!

Taylor Swift Concert Pics

Recently I took my niece to see Taylor Swift in concert. It was very exciting as it was her first concert, like, ever! We had really good seats too. And my camera that I bought for myself as a Christmas present allowed me to get some really great shots!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
Waiting for the show to begin...You know when you're driving in the car and the kids keep yelling "Are we there yet?" Yeah, it was like that..."Is Taylor coming on soon?????????"

 Doesn't this pic look magical? Like she's a fairy princess goddess emerging from the mist...

My favorite. :)
