A crafty quickie!

Hey all, are you surviving the cold weather that seems to be taking over the world!?!? Brrr!!

I'm back in Wales after my trip to Paris and have tonnes of pics to share with you! But as I'm lazy and haven't downloaded them yet, here's couple of pics of my FABULOUS beads I bought in the most amazing Parisian bead shop! (Yes I'm a geek!) And a couple of other crafty bits I've been buying on my travels.

How the hell I'm going to get it all back to NZ is beyond me!!! EEK!


This is one of two loads of beads I chose from the shop, it was SO much fun!!!!

The ONLY place i've found metal skulls in this shape!! They weren't cheap though so I only bought four. (And have already used one!!)

Loooovely crystal beads :)

Some other little bits I've bought

Here's one of the skull necklaces I made this evening <3
Little Lion charm necklace

Skull necklace number two I made tonight!

They will be added to my Etsy shop when I get a spare moment - Dad had me rummaging around in the cellar today sorting through tonnes of my old stuff (some of it was quite entertaining - old photos and letters, where does the time go?!?!) and the best bit was finding a bag of vintage beads! I've washed them and look forward to fiddling with them tomorrow :)
Yep, I'm loving Instagram at the moment, as you can tell from my frames! You can find me on there at @sadiesadiesadie :)

  3. Looking forward to this pictures of Paris, I've never been before so I'm interested to see what it is like :)! I love the metal skulls, and what you did with one, the necklace looks so cool! What are you thinking of fashioning the vintage beads into? :) xx

  4. I love craft supplies from far away - when I was in Singapore recently I found so much fabric I wanted!!! Unfortunately due to weight restrictions I had to limit myself to 4.5 metres of fabric, next time I think I will go to the fabric district first and then post stuff home :D
