Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!

I'm a little late posting as I traveled from DC to Denver today.  Have my pics now and am ready to reveal my creations.  I received my bead soup from Denielle Hagerman of Some Beads and Other Things blog. The soup that Denielle sent is delicate and spring-like with flower and polka dot beads, crystals and pearlescent beads with a silver toggle clasp. A garden theme.
And here's the necklace I created with the focal.  I tried a technique I hadn't used in a while - micro-macrame.  I used an ombre thread for the macrame and some green glass beads to make the necklace.  A tassel completes the look.

Then I created a bracelet.  I love this look.

Thanks to Lori Anderson for hosting the blog party.  You can see links for all of the creations here.

Focus on Life Week 9 - Knock, Knock, Knock

Week's nine's Focus on Life challenge was to take a photo of doors.  This picture is of my neighborhood church.  Been thinking about going through these doors again.
