STILL waiting for my supplies. HMMMmm. In the meantime, I have been reading C.S. Lewis’ “Mere Christianity” (thanks for lending me the book, Ying!) which has been a very enjoyable read so far. I have to also go to the library later this afternoon to pick up Charles Darwin’s “Origin of Species” and Jane Austen’s “Emma.”
But before that, I AGAIN went crazy at the beads store this morning. This time, I visited the Beads Company Victoria on Smith Street in Fitzroy. Boy, it’s SUCH a cool shop with a kinda old interior and have some very very old supplies, but mostly new and amazing supplies. And gosh, their shelves go so high you need a ladder to climb to get to some of the beads (think: old timey libraries…or Borders Bookstores!!). I got SOO lost in there. I spent almost two hours digging through stuff, taking beads out and then putting them back…and then taking them out AGAIN. It was a beads wonderland, indeed. Bryan is gonna get a shock when he finds out how much I spent there. (Gulp, I’d better make some sales on Etsy!!)
I tried making a charm necklace and other fun accessories…again, some are listed on Etsy and some are going to friends and family as Christmas presents! Yay!
