I love Lori Anderson's blog. It's always full of inspiration and she hosts regular Bead Soup Blog Parties which are such fun to participate in. I've only been able to participate in one of the blog parties but it was great fun and I got to meet a wonderful jewelry artist - Kathleen Lange Klik (http://modernnaturestudio.blogspot.com/). During my last trip to DC Kathleen hosted me at her studio, we had lunch at a fun outdoor cafe, listed to live music and went on a bead shopping trip. Kathleen has a design featured in the latest edition of Bead Trends (http://northridgepublishing.com/magazines/bead-trends-magazine/) which I found during my last Barnes and Noble visit. Kathleen blogged about it here (http://modernnaturestudio.blogspot.com/2012/07/walk-in-woods.html). Check it out.
Back to the giveaway. Lori Anderson has five giveaways posted (http://www.prettythingsblog.com/2012/07/finally-five-bead-and-button-bead.html) with wonderful items in each. The giveaway is open until July 13.
Here's a sample of one of the giveaways.
