Bead Soup Party - Sneak Peek

Hm, my release date is the 23rd, on wednesday next week. But here is a little sneak peek of what's going on in my studio at the moment. Perhaps we could call it "the Round Theme". I guess we'll see when it is all released.

In case you haven't got a clue what I am talking about, it is the Bead Soup Party #2. Lori Andersson is the organizer, and people from all around the world are participating in the swapping of bead soups. The swapping has already happened and everyone is now creating things with the soup that was sent to them by their partner.

And the party will start on saturday the 19th. The day of the Royal Wedding here in Sweden. It was difficult for me to choose which one of the two parties I would go to, but I finally decided that Crown Princess Victoria and her husband to be, Daniel, will have to just live with the fact that I rather hang out with my beading buddies than royal people and other celebreties from all over the world.

There will be a cortege through the city on saturday, and my husband keeps asking my daughter Arabella if she wouldn't enjoys seeing that. I don't know, it kind of seems that HE really wants to see it since he has been asking several times now. Arabella doesn't seem too bothered at the moment. But I guess we will go and watch it anyway. But I simply can't make it to the wedding party in the evening. The Bead Soup Party feels faaaaar more important to me.

Janet, I have actually thought that you might have scandinavian ancestors. Don't know, something about your profile picture and maybe your ways. Weird isn't it. How did I pick that one up? I believe it is Maire Dodd's grandmother who is from Norway too. So you two have something in common. Norweigians and Swedes don't generally have any problems at all talking to each other. Our languages are so similar. Almost like the English and the Scottish ... or what does your husband think? My English husband think ... well, I don't know what he thinks actually. Do you go to Scotland every now and then still? I mean considering you used top live there. Bead Shop Scotland in Haddington is one of my favourite web-shops for beads. Scandinavia is paradise on earth in my mind. Sooooooooo beautful nature. Big variety. The fjords of Norway, the Hardangervidda Plain, the Stockholm Archipelago, the west coast of Sweden with for instance Smogen, Skagen in Denmark, and simply just Stockholm City itself.

I was going to photograph my garden for you today. But it's raining and thundering, so ... maybe in the weekend.

Stephanie - thank you! Just you wait and see the whole thing.

I'm so excited to see your finished piece, your sneak peek is very alluring! Glad to hear you like Bead Shop Scotland - I am originally from Edinburgh (where their 2nd shop is) and went to school 10 minutes walk from where it is now. Sad that it wasn't there when I was at school!
