Simmering Soup

My beads arrived from Amy at Copper Diem~check em out!!! I am so excited to be paired up with Amy, who is witty and welcoming and very talented. The colors are Fantastic, aren't they?! I had an idea as soon as I spread out all the beads. Now let's see if I can implement it. Chances are it will become something completely different than what is in my head! More to say but I will save it for the September 17th Bead Soup Blog Hop. Hope to see you all then!

What about you---do most of your creations come out the way your mind sees them or as something totally different? These beads we work with have a mind of their own sometimes!

Awwww, you're so nice! I often start with an idea, and about half the time it ends how I think, and half the time it takes on a life of its own!

I know what you mean. The last swap I did I had an immediate idea that I had for weeks. When I finally sat down 3 days before the due date it did something totally different!

Almost never! I seldom start with a total plan but I don't do bead designs either, I'm sure you have to know how many and where they're going in that sort of work. I tend to follow the fabric, play around and change things as I go.
Christine, that package of beads you received is so beautiful, I know you are going to have lots of fun!

Those are some great colors.
It's great that you've got an idea already. . .I keep going back and forth on my design ideas. So, I'm leaving the soup to bubble away until the soup is just right and ready to be consumed!
Best of luck on having yours come out as you imagine.
