On the Bead Soup Blog Party Forum, Lori Anderson, put together a mini bead swap. Those of us that wanted to participate signed up and she paired us up with a partner just like in the big Bead Soup Blog Party. My partner this time is Pat Haight from Alaska. You can visit her blog The Wigglebutt Blog, she is very talented and has a great sense of humor. Here is the very generous Bead Soup that she sent to me.
Pat decorated the box and the card is made using a photo that she took of the two young Moose.
When I opened the box this is what I saw (neater of course) I had a lot of fun opening each one of these little pouches of paper to see the treasures inside.
These are the items I found in the little white box tied with the purple ribbon. All of these items were made by Pat. Aren't the cute and pretty?

Well there you have it all of my wonderful treasures from my new friend and mini Bead Soup Swap partner Pat Haight.
I was suppose to post these on the BSBP forum, but my photos are many and they are too large to upload onto the forum. So I will share the link to my blog post instead. Now I need to get creating with these beauties.
Happy beading Y'all,
