The need for beads

Not been up to much lately, except trying not to obsess about beads. It's like a curse. M U S T   G E T   M O R E   B E A D S ...

I've managed to limit myself to just the 3 bracelets, and they're not full (looks defensive) so they really only count as 2 and a bit bracelets.


I really can't wait til I can go back for another bead-making lesson. Melting glass is fascinating, and beads are so purty  :)

Other than obsessing about beads, I've made a couple of handbag cards, like this one:


I've also been having a go at making craft robo templates. I made a template for a weird wiggly card, in the Craftavan, and a few weeks ago I made a template for little triangle boxes, to put beads in (yeah, I'm obsessed) for a friend's birthday presents:


Other than that, not a great deal, but I have finally cleared the shelves above my desk, so I can put some of my craft stash there. Most of my card stuff is on and around the kitchen table at the moment, which isn't ideal...

And what a fantabulous birthday present it was too. Thank you again sweet pea.

The beautiful boxes are sitting here in need of something to protect. Any thoughts?

I reckon you need to buy beads to put in them. Then change your mind and put the beads on your bracelet, so you'll need to buy yet more beads to put in the boxes...
