Studio Tour Sunday

 I snapped a quick picture of the Bead Soup collection that I mailed out to my partner, and now that I know she received it, I thought I would show off the goodies.  I am excited to be participating in this next upcoming Bead Soup Challenge.  I really need a push to start beading more regularly, so this will help.  I am looking forward to getting my goodies in the mail and to get settled into my newly moved beading studio (after just a little bit more cleaning) and get to playing with beads!
And here is what some of my beady blogger friends have going on in their studios this week:
