Time to get cooking

My bead soup ingredients have arrived ! My partner is the lovely Niky of Silver Nik Nats and she has sent me a fab range of goodies to play with.

This is what came out of the envelope, and Niky made it herself, but, not only that it co-ordinates with the contents !! And you know I love things that are matched, and it doesnt end there - 

See, she even matched the tissue paper to the turquoise beads !! I have to confess to squeals of excitement at this point ! And it gets better !! 

Niky made the pendant herself and that along with the clasp are the piece that I have to use as part of the bead soup challenge, not that it will be a problem, nor will using everything else she sent either let me tell you !! Im totally in love with the piece of titanium by Holly Gage that Niky sent, the colours are mesmerising and I have lots of ideas of things I would like to do with it. And there's more....

Totally spoling me, Niky sent Laura Sparling lampwork beads too !! (Am I not the luckiest swap partner ever ? It certainly feels that way !) Along with Turquoise, blue goldstone, and crystal beads too ! And still there is more...

Now isnt he just so cute !! I think something really fun and quirky is called for here ! 

I was very curious when Niky said she had included something I might not have used before and was therefore delighted to find this - 

I have been watching the new Polymer Clay thread on Frit Happens with great interest so I cant wait to get some basic tools and have a go with this. 

A HUGE and most GIGANTIC thank you to Niky for such a wonderful parcel and for taking such care  and attention to detail with the packaging. I feel very pampered and very very inspired, Thank you Niky !! 

If you would like to check out what other people have been sending and receiving there is a flickr group you can check out. I'm going to go now and take my over excitement and multiple !! away and find some dinner before I get any more hyper !
