Today is Tuesday, so it is time for another installment of Tips and Tools! Here at Beadphoria, we have a hot tip for you! There is another one of Lori Anderson’s Bead Soup Blog Parties in the works!

The first Bead Soup necklace "Caramel Swirl" by Suzann Sladcik Wilson

Beadphoria has been involved in the first two Bead Soup Blog Parties and had a blast! Want to join in the fun? First, you need to have a blog. Second, hop on over to Lori Anderson’s blog Pretty Things and let her know you want to join. Next, put a widget on your blog to let everyone know you are part of the party, (see, mine is over there on the right).  Lori will then let you know who your Party Partner is and a list of all of the blogs participating in the swap.

This is where the fun begins! You send your partner a focal, some coordinating spacers or beads, and a special clasp (no lobster claws, please!). When you receive you beads from your partner, post a picture of them on your blog. On Party Day is when you reveal on your blog  the beautiful creation you have made with the beads that were sent to you. You also get to see what everyone else has done by stopping by their blogs.

So grab your invite and join the party!

Also, don’t forget to visit my friend Theresa Cifali today. She has a great tool to share with you that if you do paper arts, you don’t want to miss!
