BSBP Hoarder's Addition - Meet my Partner

Hey Y'all,
I'm back after taking a year off. 2016 was a year of changes and readjusting, but all is well now and I am back.
I follow Lori Anderson on Facebook as well as in the blogs, but I must confess I am on Facebook more than on the blogs, I saw that she decided to do another BSBP and the sign up was going to be on January 28th. I said to myself, this is just the thing to get me back to my blog, so I signed up.

This time around Lori made it about hoarded beads and that when making up our boxes for our partner we were to include a hoarded bead or beads and these are the must use items in our creations.

Lori partnered me with Babette Cox out of Rowlett, TX this is Babette's first BSBP.

I forgot to take a before picture of what I sent to Babette, but she was kind enough to send me the pictures of what I sent to her.

The hoarded items I sent, well to be honest they are all hoarded items, are a lampworked glass focal bead by Juli Cannon of  Studio Juls and a brass and copper clasp handmade by Melinda Orr of ORRTEC. I also included a cabochon that I made and wire wrapped. The rest of the beads are from my stash of beads. I put them all into the box I had made for a challenge by Janet Bocciardi in October 2014.

Here is what Babette sent to me.

The hoarded beads are the turquoise nuggets, the coral, the teal hashi beads, and the clasp these are treasured beads, because they belonged to a dear friend of hers that has passed away. The lampworked bead was made by Babette just for me.

Babette made the card she sent.

Babette is like so many of us creative people. She does lampworking, stamping, PMC, and much more.

The BSBP reveal is March 25, 2017, so come on back and see what I created with my beads.

Happy beading Y'all,
