Paired Up and Ready to Hop

The partners have been matched up, and it's almost time for the Bead Soup Blog Hop party to commence.

I'm so excited to be paired with Cindy Cima Edwards -- check out her beautiful work here and here. She's had her work published in some of your favorite magazines, so I can't wait to see what she cooks up with the bead mix that's growing on my work table.

And I can't wait to see what she puts together for me to play with!

This is my first time participating in this swap - can't wait! And thanks to the master matchmaker, Lori Anderson, for putting all of this together while dealing with an extra crazy dose of real life over the past couple of weeks. Remember the guy who used to spin plates on the Ed Sullivan Show?

I think Lori takes this masterful balancing act to a new level while she coordinates the millions of details around the swap, more like this:

I can just hear her saying "Yep, I can do that, with a woman on my head, rocking spandex and sequins, and looking calm."

And please don't point out how the Ed Sullivan reference dates me.
