The Wandering, Meandering of a Drunk Beader

Yeap, you read that right. It's been a while since I've drank wine and boy did it hit me hard. Unfortunately it wasn't really even good wine. That's what I get for buying from the clearance bin, ok, it's actually a water trough, at my local grocery store. So while in my bad, wine, altered state, I decided to work on my Bead Soup Goodies.. Not really a good idea. This picture is the result of my attempt. Sorry Deci, it doesn't do your contribution justice at all! So this morning I pulled the plug on this attempt. I've been looking and playing with the beads today between taking care of MY 3yo daughter and the 1.5yo & 6mo grand-daughters.

Some history....I'm not a stringer. I started making pendants and really tend to stick with that. if I do string, it's on ribbon (like this)or musky woven fishing line(like this). So Even though I want to use the Bead Soup as a chance to expand my comfort zone, I think that stringing is out of my comfort continent...Sooooo back to the drawing board. And Deci, I still love what you sent, and I'm enjoying this journey!!

Well, Margee, I did send you that green aventurine cab...You might need to mix it all back up again. But, then again, maybe not.
I added another row to mine yesterday.

Oh Margee, you won the magazine! I'll send it out tomorrow!

That is just too funny, I love the title of this post!

I'm not a stringer either, I went right to my comfort zone of embroidery with my soup, I had to! The clasp was challenge enough for me to attach :-)
