Lori Anderson is giving away a set of totally fun metal letter stamps from PJ Tool and Supply.

How fun are these stamps??

I would love to add these to my growing collection of metal alphabets!

For a chance to win, head over to Lori’s blog Pretty Things for details.

And check out the PJ Tool and Supply site.  I had not heard of them before and there is all sorts of stuff to get a metal jewelry gal into lots of trouble – stamping tools, metal disc cutters, and of course the metal stamps – just to name a few.

I had to look into shipping since that adds up so quickly for stamping tools due to weight. Shipping is a flat $8.50 in the 48 contiguous states! That’s fantastic!! Now I’m really in trouble.

We’ve reached the end of the second round of Lori Anderson’s Bead Soup Party. I’ve really enjoyed my second serving of soup and I’m ready to get the third pot going. I have a bead convention coming up in less than two weeks, so I am very excited to look for something fun for my next partner.

Today is the last day to enter my giveaway from the bracelet pictured in my reveal on Day 3.  All you need to do to enter is leave a comment (one per person please).  Comments will close at midnight PST.

Here is the last helping of soup…

The party is almost over, which is sad. But there are still lots of lovely blogs to visit today and tomorrow. There are only a couple of days left to win a bracelet by commenting (one per person please) on my piece from Day 3.  My plan is to close the comments at midnight PST tomorrow.

I have an idea in the works for one of the other focals I received from my partner, Kate of Tropical Blonde, but my week has gotten away from me.  I will definitely post when I do get it done.

Don’t forget to visit these blogs today.

Have a good night!

There are 97 participants in the second batch of the Bead Soup Blog Party. Last time, we all revealed on the same day, and it was a bit overwhelming.  This time, Lori has split us up into smaller servings, which I think is a fantastic idea.  (If you promise not to tell, I could actually use a few more days because I’m not done yet!)

My plan is to put a post up each day of the soup creations revealed that day.  I’m sure many of us will be doing the same.  My reveal is coming up on Day 3 of the party, which is Monday, so please come back.

To add a little fun to the party, I’m going to be doing my very first giveaway. All comments on the post where I reveal my creation will be entered into a drawing for a piece created with components from the party. Only one comment per person will qualify. At midnight on the last day of the party (June 26th), I’ll be closing the comments.  I’ll pick a winner a couple of days after that.

As for what you’ll win…

you’ll just have to come back on Day 3.  I can tell you for sure, that I have that piece made, so it’s a done deal. 😉

So, here is the list for Day 1.

Have fun seeing what everyone has created, especially my partner, Kate!  And don’t forget to comment here.  The giveaway entries start right now!

11:00pm update: I decided my original contest idea was a little too complicated, so I’m limiting the entries to comments on the post where I reveal my piece.
