I haven’t made anything recently since I just got back from vacation. I know a lot of people take beading supplies on vacation. I do too sometimes, but this wasn’t that kind of trip. I had a wonderful time and came home to a happy little bubble envelope in my mail. I also got a few right before I left. I thought it would be fun to share the beauty.
First, from my trip. I had hoped to get some beading supplies at the flea market. I thought buttons would be the most likely thing I might find, and I was right.
There were also some nice keys at another booth, but they were a little more than I wanted to pay. I haven’t priced keys before, so I hope I’m right that I have the potential to find them for a better price.
Before I left, I had gotten my most recent beads from Nancy Schindler of Round Rabbit Extra. I just love the matte finish on that turban bead!
Just before leaving on vacation, I got my order from Kristi Bowman of Kristi Bowman Design. The light wasn’t cooperating with me today, but these items are gorgeous.
Prior to all this, I got an order of a floral pendant and a jackalope bead from Rebekah Payne of Tree Wings Studio.
When I got home, I had an order waiting for me from Barbara Bechtel of Second Surf.
On the last full day of my vacation, I learned I had won a drawing for some pendants from Marie-Noel Voyer-Cramp of More Skye Jewels, also on the Art Bead Scene blog. I don’t have a picture yet, but I just wanted to mention it because I feel like the bead world is so generous, and I am very lucky!
I hope you enjoyed my tour. I know I love reading a good “here is some of my stash” post. The supplies are half the fun!
