Link Library With Melanie

 I am taking a break from the archive link library this week to tell you about the awesome Bead Soup Blog party that just happened yesterday!  Lori Anderson picked 200 bead artists to swap bead "soup" mixes and make beautiful creations with them, which were all revealed yesterday.  Click here to see the whole list of Bead Soup participants for lots of links to art bead inspiration!  Shown above is my own Bead Soup project, made with beads by myself and Libby Leu.

Here are some other fun things going on in the bead blogosphere this week:
