………..and last but not least, beads from Sher, Jennifer and Ashley.  I am so pleased with all the beads, they came out so beautifully!  It is amazing how everyone got so creative experimenting different shapes and paper.  Even if there is no bead soup this time I would like you to see everybody’s beads.
