I’m still trying to work out who gets more excited when the postie arrives, me or the kids!? Me because it’s usually beads, the kids because it’s usually wrapped in bubble wrap!!

And today was no different.

My favourite bead shop, has some new beads, and I have visions for a necklace.

What do you think of the new ‘bamboo’ & mini ovals? I love them,  they add texture and another dimension to the classic ‘essential range’ necklace.
