Winner of the BSBP Scavenger Hunt #1, and get ready for Scavenger Hunt #2!

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner but it took Zack and I a lot longer to cut up the strips of paper than we had thought!  Without further ado, the winner of the book "Linked -- Innovative Chain Mail Jewelry Designs" is:


Mitzie Crider of Needeful Luxuries





Mitzie admired the work of 

Adlinah Kamsir of DreamStruck Designs

I hope you'll visit both of their sites!  
Adlinah not only used chain but I noticed she actually 
made chain herself for the first time.  Serendipity!



Congratulations, Mitzie, on winning the book, and to
Adlinah, for rocking her soup!


(AGAIN!)


I know the Bead Soup Blog Party is enormous and everyone has things going on in their lives -- jobs, kids, family, shows, etc -- so I'm continuing the Scavenger Hunts for a couple of weeks to encourage hopping (AND COMMENTING!).  Are you having fun yet?  I know I am, and I still have a ton of blogs to hop!


I'm running this on the honor system.

and scroll towards the bottom to see the loooong list of designers.


Visit until you find someone
 who used ORANGE or RED


Please don't just start at the top -- 
give people in the middle and the bottom some love, too, 
and comment, even if don't find the colors!



Do not leave a comment with the name of the person on my blog, but email me at 
lori at lorianderson dot net with "Scavenger Hunt 2" in the subject line.

The winner will receive this batch of Bead Soup I mixed,
 using crab agate, mother of pearl, lampwork, vintage ceramic, and more!




This Scavenger Hunt will end sooner, since I have a wedding to go to this weekend,
so ready, set, GO!
I'll announce the winner this Thursday, May 22nd.


Please feel free to announce this on your blog, Facebook, and Twitter!


Remember,
do not leave a comment with the name of the person on my blog, but email me at 
lori at lorianderson dot net with "Scavenger Hunt 2" in the subject line.


Happy Hunting!

Bead Soup Blog Party Scavenger Hunt #1 -- win a book!




As the Bead Soup Blog Party is enormous (nearly 500 blogs to visit and comment on), I thought I'd add the fun of some scavenger hunts to the mix to encourage people to visit. 

 You do NOT have to have participated in the Party as a designer in order to win!


I was delighted to review my editor, Karin Van Voorhees's new book, 
"Linked -- Innovative Chain Mail Jewelry Designs.



Karin gathered noted artists John Fetvedt, Diane Miller, Anne Mitchell, Laura Poplin, Sue Ripsch, and Vanessa Walilko to create beautiful, accessible jewelry using jump rings.  There are 22 projects, as well as information on how to make your own jump rings should you wish, how various metals will affect your work (and your hands!), a great page on soldering (soldering is NOT require for the majority of these projects, but the soldering that IS required is easy to do.  I didn't burn anything up.)


Other than the projects, my favorite pages are about aspect ratio, how to control your rings, and how to know what size to use for what project.  I like to make my own chains, but I often have to wing it and take things apart when I don't have a good grasp on what 3.5 mm versus 4.5 mm will do. Too small, and your piece can be too tight and crimp up.  Too large, and your piece may look wobbly (but then again, it could look really cool, as I've learned when making King's Maille with huge rings.)




I'm running this on the honor system.

and scroll towards the bottom to see the loooong list of designers.

Visit until you find someone who used chain. 
It does NOT have to be handmade chain, just chain.

Please don't just start at the top -- 
give people in the middle and the bottom some love, too, 
and comment, even if you don't find chain!



To enter, make a comment below, click here to email me 

with the subject "Scavenger Hunt" 
and the name of the blog
in the body of the message.

(that way, people won't see the comments and go to that same blog).

A winner will be chosen Friday, May 16th.


I'll then add another scavenger hunt!

Ready

Set

Hunt!

Some tips as you hop!

EDITED TO ADD -- does your "About Me" button on blogger have your email address?  If not, no one can respond personally to your post!  If you go to Blogger, look in the upper right and you should see your icon.  Click the down arrow and choose "Blogger profile".  That's where you can add it.


Just emailed this out, but wanted to post it here as well:


Some tips!

First, thank you to all of you who could participate -- there were a lot of folks who had to drop out (many for very painful reasons, so say a quick prayer if you would) but we still have a LOT of people to visit! 


1)  I do not expect you to get this done in a day.  

However, it would be so awesome if you could try and visit as many as you can in the next two weeks.



2)  I'll make that easier for you if you visit my direct link, 

http://www.prettythingsblog.com/2014/05/welcome-to-8th-bead-soup-blog-party.html

As you will see, some people have links by their name and as time goes on, the links change to the actual NAME of the blog.  That means I've visited them AND made the link go DIRECTLY to their Bead Soup Reveal page, so you don't have to search for it. You'll also see how I hop around all over the place to make it as fair as possible.



3)  Some people can't post until Monday or so because of Mother's Day.  

It is TOTALLY MY FAULT for moving the reveal date, so please don't give them a hard time.  Just come back later!


VERY IMPORTANT


4)  Please Pin your creations WITH YOUR URL LINK AND NAME to

http://www.pinterest.com/limamike/8th-bead-soup-blog-party/ 

I have an ambitious plan in mind, but if you don't add your piece AND YOUR NAME AND URL, you won't get included.




5) I forgot #5.  It probably involved having a fun drink and some pie while you hop.  Yeah.  That's it!

It's Reveal Day!!!!

Here's the permalink to my page if you don't want to list all the participants on yours!  I'll be updating that list as I go so each link will go directly to your bead soup creation page.  Just give me some time!

http://www.prettythingsblog.com/2014/05/welcome-to-8th-bead-soup-blog-party.html

Have fun, I'm going to be, I'm giddy I'm so exhausted!  Will see you all later!

8th Bead Soup Blog Party Participant Link List

PLEASE check and see if your link is correct.  I know this is coming with only 24 hours notice, so if you find a mistake, please message me on Facebook for fastest attention ((www.facebook.com/limamike).  The list is in order of when you signed up, so use CTRL-F to open a "find" window to find your name.


I have an overloaded inbox, so if you told me you cannot participate and still see your name here, please message me.  If you can and are so inclined, it would be great if you would write a brief bit with the link to your partner's link.  Thanks!


Please see the previous post for the permalink if you don't want to post this entire list to your web site.
