Kalmbach's Bead Soup Party -

Image
In honor of Lori Anderson's new book Bead Soup, Kalmbach decided to have a bead soup party. I signed up and hoped I'd be one of the lucky artists chosen to participate. Plus, I 'd like a chance to win some of theircool prizes. They organized retail bead stores to donate some bead soups. One by one I saw postings of other artists who received their packages. Then the day came when I saw the "famous" brown envelope in my mailbox. I was so excited to find outI was paired with YourBeadingHeartlocated in Irwin, PA .  Here is the necklace I created with my Kalmbach Bead Soup from Your Beading Heart!I've added some of my handmade lampwork glass beads for a unique and personal look.Check out their website at http://www.yourbeadingheart.netThank you ! I took a picture of the "before and "after" for you to enjoy. (Winners for prizes will be picked the end of November...Yay ! )

Crows are now considered to be among the world's most intelligent animals.

Image
Some of the many vocalizations that crows make are a "Koww", usually echoed back and forth between birds, a series of "Kowws" in discrete units, a long caw followed by a series of short caws (usually made when a bird takes off from a perch), an echo-like "eh-aw" sound, and more.

Another great idea:
Turn your muffin pan upside down, bake cookie-dough over the top and voila – you have cookie bowls for fruit or ice-cream.
