I think I have a soup hangover...

Whew! That was quite the party! I was feeling a little hungover but went back for more. Nothing like a little hair of the dog that bit you... right?  

I'm still working my way through all the blogs.  I think I have now viewed 140 of 210 blogs.  If you're looking for my Bead Soup Reveal, it's one post down. :-)

My strategy for visiting all the party goers?  I broke them into blocks of 10, I covered my own block of 10 first and then hopped all over the place (in groups of 10) in no particular order.  Being in the middle section (at #140) I know these people have not gotten as many visitors as those at the beginning and the end of the list. 

What I have gained from this experience: 

-First, I have gained blog followers.  Welcome everyone!
-Second, I have found many new blogs to follow!  Talk about eye candy!
-I have also found many new bead makers who make me feel the need to hide my wallet. ;-) Drool!!
-I have gained a huge amount of inspiration!  If checking out 210 gorgeous pieces of jewelry doesn't inspire you, nothing will.
-I have gained some great new ideas for my own blog!  Check out my new signature on the bottom of my posts.  This cool idea came from this blog hop.
-I have gained an enormous amount of respect for people who organize blog hops.  My goodness, that must have been a lot of work!
-And last but not least, I have gained a big ego boost from all the lovely comments that were left on my blog. :-)

Thank you so much everyone!

I also wanted to share a photo of what came out of my kiln on Saturday morning!  I've been dying to share but wanted to hold off for a bit to let the dust settle from the party.

I'm going to get back to blog hopping.  My goal is to visit and leave a comment on every single one.

Have a great day!


  1. Hi Lisa i hopped my way through all of them finished late this afternoon, i started at the top until 100 them from bottom back up, such a wide range of unique and inspiring creations, cudos to Miss Lori for organizing and coming up with the concept for this wonderful sharings of our love of creating. i really love the burgandy set of beads Lisa Yummy!!

  2. know, I got so much from this bead soup than I ever, ever realized I would! I loved this post. It made me think of all the things I learned & gained from it....besides being super fun =)

  3. I know what you mean! I'm still not finished, but I'm having so much fun exploring. I've followed a bunch more and I've gained many new followers too. All the sweet comments made me feel much better about my necklace. Reading everything really made me wonder how I ever doubted it!

    I'm definitely going to participate in more challenges and things like this - it's really inspirational.

  4. pretty pretty beads Lisa. I know what you mean about a hangover..I don't want to see another link list until September! lol

  5. I am still swimming in soup! I did the first blog and the last blog (and my partner of course) and then started by 1s, 2s, 3s, etc. Now I am just going back to the blocks, much easier!
    I love that you learned new things, found new friends, sparked new ideas. That is what it is all about.

    Love the signature. Wonder if I could do that? Is it hard to do?
    Love your eye candy...those are so juicy I want to bite right in!
    Enjoy the day!
