IF you are at all familiar with the Bead Soup Blog Party, chances are you know who Lori Anderson is. She is the talented lady who is the mastermind behind this fun event.
When I first got involved in making jewelry, I turned to the internet for inspiration, knowledge, and camaraderie. Throughout the past few years, there have been a few people who have stood out as people who embody what I would like to achieve in my chosen path. Lori is one of them, and I’m pleased as punch “to go pink” for her….although, as you can see, for me, pink is a way of life!!
Why pink, you ask? Lori has the most beautiful bright pink accents in her hair!
Going pink for Lori is my way of honoring her and saying thank you to her for her love, talent, inspiration, attitude, energy and warmth. When you join the Bead Soup Blog Party, you become part of an event, but it feels more like family. Lori fusses over every small detail, and goes out of her way to make sure everyone is accommodated, and able to participate. She constantly communicates with all of us to check on our progress, just like a good mom should. And on reveal day, like a proud mom, she is sure she visits each and every blog, and comments on each person’s creation. And her comments show that she has actually taken the time to read each entry, and look at all of the pictures.
So, Lori, this one’s for you, with much love and appreciation.
Oh, and here’s some pie, too!
Please take a moment to visit the other participants who have paid tribute to Lori today.
