Bead Soup Book Blog Tour and a giveaway


Our wonderful Lori Anderson had a vision - to bring together people from all over the world to help them make something amazing. So she founded the now famous Bead Soup Party - an once in a year event we beaders simply love. And  now there is - tadada - a book! And that is out now! I'm still waiting for my copy, but from the few pages I had the chance to look into - it is marvelous -  many different projects  in many different styles with detailed instructions. So cool.

Unsere wunderbare Lori Anderson hatte eine Vision - Leute aus der ganzen Welt zusammenzubringen und ihnen dabei zu helfen, etwas ganz Erstaunliches zu schaffen. Aus diesem Grund hat sie die Bead Soup Party gegründet - ein Event, das einmal im Jahr stattfindet, und das wir alle einfach lieben. Und nun gibt es auch noch ein - Buch! Und das ist gerade erschienen! Ich warte noch auf mein Exemplar, aber von den Seiten, die ich einsehen konnte, ist es einfach nur klasse - viele verschiedene Projekte in unterschiedlichen Stilrichtungen mit detailierten Anleitungen. Einfach cool.

And can you imagine how shocked, proud and over the moon I was when Lori asked me to contribute to her book with a piece? Right now I'm not allowed to show you the whole piece, but here is a sneak of it. And I can show you the soup I could work with. Aren't all those fruity beads pure fun?

Und könnt Ihr Euch vorstellen, wie geschockt, stolz, einfach nur hin und weg ich war, als Lori mich gefragt hat, ob ich eine Schmucktsück beisteuern würde? Das ganze Schmuckstück darf ich hier nicht zeigen, aber einen kleinen Ausschnitt und die Suppe, mit der ich arbeiten durfte. Sind all diese kleinen Früchtchen nicht einfach zum Anbeißen?



To celebrate Loris book I wanna give away a harvest inspired soup and fiber of my own stash. I hope you will be inspired to make something cool with it. The giveway is open for everyone. If you live outside Germany I'll add a special german treat for you too:-) Just leave a comment. Make sure I will be able to get in contact with you IF you are the winner. I'll pull the winner randomly on the 8th or 9th. Check Lori's blog PrettyThings for more details on how the drawings works. Please also make sure to check all the other post in this week long blog tour. There are so many things you can win. You'll find all the info on Lori's blog.


Um Loris Buch zu feiern, habe ich als Giveaway eine vom Herbst inspirierte Perlen/Stoff-Suppe aus meinem Bestand zusammengestellt, die Euch hoffentlich inspiriert, etwas cooles daraus zu machen. Das Giveaway ist für jeden offen. Sollte der Gewinner außerhalb Deutschland wohnen, lege ich noch eine kleinen deutschen Gruß bei. Hinterlasst einfach nur einen Kommentar und stellt sicher, dass ich Euch kontaktieren kann, solltet Ihr am 8 oder 9. Oktober gezogen werden. Und schaut auf jeden Fall auch auf Loris Blog PrettyThings vorbei, da gibt es noch viele mehr zu gewinnen.

Stefanie, I remember when I was photographing your soup thinking that it looked like such a challenge to me.... I wondered what to do with the fruit beads. Once I saw they book I was just so amazed and and impressed with how you designed with your components! Your necklace is beautiful and adds a touch of whimsy to the book. I asked one of my sons what his favorite project was in the book...he looked through it and pointed to yours!! :-)

super cool looking bead soup--I'd love to make something with these beads!

windbent hat gesagt…

Thank you for the opportunity to win a soup you created. I can't wait to see your big reveal in the book. I sure wish that German treat would be Marzipankartoffeln but I doubt you could get it through customs. We tried to bring back some marzipan we bought from Asda into the US and they treated it like plastique and ruined it! LOL
