Bead Soup Blog Party® -- rev your engines!

Hello everyone!  Thank you so much for the amazing response to the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party®.  Over 500 people signed up for the three reveal dates.  That's a record!

This week I will be pairing people up and you will get an individual email from me with your partner's name and information.  That email should come over the weekend.  Between now and then, I will be visiting all of your blogs, checking all the information, and preparing for this massive event.

In the meantime, please look to the side bar on the right and enter your email to follow this blog by email.  That way, you should always be alerted if there is something going on with the party.  I also try to send mass emails, but with this many people, I'm trying to make sure you have a place to get the info and not end up in your spam folder.

You can get a blog button and link it to by clicking here.

For now, please start making up your soup
with these rules in mind.....

 :: One focal ::
 ::  One special clasp (not a lobster claw) ::
::  Some coordinating beads (no need to send a million) ::

No religious items -- crosses, Buddhas, goddesses, etc.
No political items.
No naked bits of bodies (yup, it's happened.)
No cabochons unless you're sending to a seed beader.

Please do not show what you are planning to send 
until after your partner has received it.

You can also join the 
to join in the chat and the excitement
and get tips and tricks from veteran Soupers.

Thank you and stay tuned!
