Bead Soup Book Giveaway

Today we are taking a minute to celebrate Lori Anderson's new book - Bead Soup! Part of the team of 26 beaders are several ABS editors including Erin Prais-Hintz, Rebecca Anderson, Melanie Brooks, Brandi Hussey and myself.  So let's throw some confetti!

Cooking inside are 32 creative projects that span a wide range of styles and techniques.  Lori ties it all together with design tips for working with bead soup projects and a a gallery of piping-hot fresh designs from her popular Bead Soup Blog Parties.  It's so much fun to see the bead soups and what each designer created.  The projects are a complex blend of flavors: styles, colors and designs that will inspire beaders of all skill levels.  As an art bead fan, this book is filled with wonderful examples of unique ways to use focal beads.  It's a must-have for your bead book library. 

I have a copy of the book for one lucky winner.  Leave a comment below. We'll pick a random commenter on 10/17. Make sure you we can contact you if you win! 

I'm hosting a blog hop featuring my books that were included in the book.  Check out my blog for details and information on purchasing a kit.
