The sweetest thing

Rebecca Anderson is just the sweetest thing. I met her as my bead buddy in Lori's second bead soup party, and since then we are really connected. Rebecca lives in the UK and is a singer and jewelry designer, and a very talented one. She seed beads and loves wire work too. Her pieces are really cool - go over to her etsy shop here where you can buy some stunning pieces of beadwork.

So how cool was that when I won her recent giveaway - the book called Four seasons of beading. I have already fully absorbed it, and got very inspired by all the projects that are in there. But I was truely truely amazed by Rebecca's sweetness, when I found out that there was a little extra bag filled with beady goodness in the package when the book arrived. And when I opened it, I found out that it was not only some beady goodness, but it was the necklace she made from the beads that I sent her in the last bead soup party. And I L-O-V-E it. I have been wearing it a lot. And it always warms up my heart when I see it and makes me think of Rebecca.

Rebecca recently got married and looked really gorgeous in her wedding dress. I would have loved to be there. I wish you so much luck Rebecca and happiness you and your honey.

The bead soup party was surely not the last time Rebecca and I met - I have other projects in mind, some of them include a trip to the UK and a hedgehog cake. So keep visiting Rebecca's blog and mine to check for updates.

    I'm so glad the swap worked out that way! That's one of the intentions I'd hoped for, the making of friends!
