So if you’ve been following my blog you’ll know I’m involved in Bead Peeps Swap N Hop. The deadline for bead sending was this past Saturday but on Wednesday I picked up a new partner!
The best part about this pairing is how different her style is from mine. She very much an organic, freestyle, found object, kinda hippie and really fun. She’s a successful businesswoman that likes to challenge herself with surprise kits and reinvent things into awesome pieces. These are a few of my favorites:
She lives in SoCal, and loves the weather there in the winter, but says it’s almost unbearable in the summer. She has a lot of family back east and can’t wait for the reunion at Lake Tahoe this summer.
We actually talked very little about beads in our 3 hour chat, though I did find out she has a hard time writing for her blog because she just writes so much and can’t stop (if you have a moment check out this post she did about dyeing pearls – who even knew you could do that?!).
Luckily I was paid Friday so I hopped on over to my LBS and got to looking. I found some things that seemed right up her alley, then came home and went through my stash to find more that I thought would challenge her. I just went searching for the pic of her items and found I deleted it from my phone, I’ll have to check if it’s on my computer later – but her package did go out today!
update: this is what I sent her lol
Can’t wait to see what she scrounges up for me!(my only request was no seeds as my other partner is a seeder – I really want to stretch myself!)
