Bead soup party beads have arrived!

Let me first start off by saying what a small world it is. As you've seen, I'm doing the bead soup party through Lori Anderson's blog. The gal that I've been partnered with is currently living in Peoria, AZ and is here in Portland this week visiting her sister. Out of 360ish people and random match-ups, what are the odds that I would be paired with someone from AZ (where I lived for 10 years) who is here in Portland now. It's amazing!
We got together this week to have a treat at Peet's coffee house on Broadway and exchange beads. Here we are smiling for the camera...
And here are our delicious treats. I got a trail mix bar and caramel frappachino thing and they were delish!

Here are pics of all the luscious beads she put together for me:
 Here is an overview of the beads, and not one, but two toggles!...
Here are the blue beads, in ceramics, stone and glass. Tribal and earthy...
Look at that handmade toggle Joyce made; exquisite!
Joyce treated both of these charms, and stamped the word "create" on the copper disc...
 Here's the second toggle. I got not one but two!  How cool is that?
And here is the focal bead in glass; aren't the mix of colors lovely?

I'm looking forward to getting started!

Hi there partner. I just updated my blog. Got home yesterday, safe and sound. It was great to meet you in person. Thanks for your beautiful beadies! I'll try and make something excellent!

Peace - Joyce
