Scent of a Soup - Soup Sent

Can you smell the Soup simmering?  Here's a peek in the pot of The Scent of a Soup that I sent for Carolyn Young Chenault to feast her creativity into and come to a full boil on Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal Day, Saturday, May 10, 2014.  I fashioned together this Uniquely 4 Ewe Recipe Gift Tag to encourage and inspire her success:

The BSBP Recipe Teaser???
Here's the hidden variety of natural treasures
awaiting my partner to unleash her creativity!
Bead Soup Ingredient Peek!

     Looking forward to seeing what deliciousness Carolyn designs with her soup. She almost always creates necklaces or bracelets, but this Soup "has given her great inspiration".  She may make a new accessory item.  I've been excited, dreaming about what creative item she will come up with.
Handmade Focal Bead and Antique Copper Clasp
      This flower focal bead I made specifically for Carolyn's Bead Soup out of two different sizes of daggers, drop beads, crystals and seed beads. Carolyn said it reminds her of the sea anemones she sees in the tide pools on the Oregon Coast.  I had only seen this focal as a flower, but she's right, it looks like an ocean creature.
Handmade craftCADDY

      I also tucked in a fun gift, I hope she will find as useful as all the crafters' in our family do.  I sent her a handmade craftCADDY made by my dad. It can hold your crafting tools or tubes of beads for a project you're working on.  It's coming soon to our Uniquely 4 Ewe Etsy Shop for you to to stop by and check out this handy goodie.  Your craft table just might not be able to live without one or two! 
     After receiving our Soups, we thought it was funny that we picked similar color pallets for each other. Can't you just smell the Scent of a Soup that's simmering in Carolyn's Studio and getting ready for The 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party organized by the creative, talented and inspired Lori McDaniel Anderson.
     Must go set the table in anticipation of BSBP Reveal Day, just 1 week away now on Saturday, May 10, 2014!!! 
Bon Appetit Beaders!!!
