My Beading Diary: Lucky Winner

 I was the lucky winner of a give away over at 

I absolutely love these 
baby blue drop earrings. 
Which will come as no suprise to anybody that knows me.
(Baby blue is my favourite colour and as such I own A LOT 
of things in that particular shade!)

They came beautifully packaged with
a lovely card and message.

 I am really looking forward to wearing them :-)    

- Thank you very much Coffee Addict x

A Purple Prezzie

Another pair of pearly lovelies. 

This time made for a friend of mine as a prezzie.
She is definitely a 'purple person' so she will, hopefully,  love these.

I have yet to meet a creative person who doesn't like the colour purple!

*PS. (They are the same length in real life, it's just the photograph!)

To Snack Or Not To Snack, That Is The Question...

Sometimes a girl just needs to eat cake!

Do you find yourself reaching for the snacks as you're beading?

Or do you find that the beading keeps your hands and mind 
busy enough to forget about the nibbles? 

I know this hobby certainly shrinks my wallet, 
can it start working on the waistline too please!??

Inspire Me - Alien

This 'Inspire Me' post is taking a little bit of a dark turn. 

With Halloween approaching fast 
I wanted to use something scary to inspire this bead selection. 

The shops are full of the usual pumpkins, ghoules and ghosts 
but my mind was drawn back to something that really scared me.

The 1979 film Alien. 

Now that really is the stuff of nigthmares, 
as I am sure those of you that have watched this film will agree!

Here is my selection of Alien inspired beads:

Magical Hematite Rondel Bead String

Volcanic Lava Rondel Beads - Unusual !

Hematite Chip Strand - 34 Inch Strand

Lava and Hematite rondels available from Mr Bead.
Hematite chip strand from Spoilt Rotten Beads.

And of course no project inspired by the film Alien
would be complete without Jones the cat!

From The Great Big Bead Shop
Jones?, ...Jones?.......Jonesey?...........
