I Just Got Seriously Souped

First...thank you, Judy!  I just opened up this wonderful box of bead soup and I am flabbergasted and excited and grateful!!  She made me a personalized Jen Judd Rocks tag!!!!  How cool is that!?!

Judy's Bead Soup Nametag

Before I go on rambling about Judy's soup, I have to say that I picked up a couple of bead packages from my mail box on the way home. I've had a really long day--started with a hard workout and then meetings and too much time on the computer.  Even before I opened the the packages I had to take off the combat boots, put on my pajamas and grab a beer. That's pretty much the same process as most evenings, but it's waaaaay better when there are bead packages.  Since I had the camera out to shoot the beads, I captured the pure joy of a Miller Lite and a dinner of string cheese. 

But, now that I'm finished with the cheese , I'm ready to show some more of my Judy Joy.  Here's a luscious set of blues along with some really kickass vintage pieces that she picked just for me!  A "J" typewriter key, a skeleton key (even though she doesn't know I grew up in a house where they were the norm), and a military button.

As for the focal I get to work with, Judy wrote to say that she couldn't choose just one etched copper pendant so she sent them both.  There's a little bit of Paris there, but I'm in love with the butterfly.

Again, thanks Judy.  I truly appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness!  And, thanks to Lori for hosting another bead soup part! Oh and thanks to my rebel for coming out to play and helping me capture the fun and surprise and excitement of opening an awesome beady package...and getting souped!!
