It all started out so innocently. My intentions were to make a quick trip to the bead store to pick up one type of bead. Just one. The white milky oval one. I was going to make a couple pieces for a customer who missed out on the ones that I posted in my etsy shop - the ones made with the bead in question. The quick trip lasted a bit longer than I intended (and cost a bit more, too), resulting in the purchase of the following:
I have no real need for these beads now. I've stopped by Flirt, JetSet, Sodafine, and Subdivision to drop off pieces for the holiday shopping rush. I've got several pieces on hand to add to the sulu-design etsy shop, and I've got my holiday gifts covered. I DO NOT NEED MORE BEADS RIGHT NOW! But I couldn't resist. So, while I was expecting to post a lovely picture of a home-cooked meal this evening (we're having tilapia with a black bean salsa, in case you were dying to know), you're getting beads instead.
P.S. I'm so glad to read that Crystal is enjoying her newly arrived sulu-design earrings. Thanks for posting about them on your blog, Crystal!
