I went into Cardiff today to top up my studio supplies.Had a fab time as it is Armed Forces Day in Cardiff.There were military planes flying displays over the city.Doctor Who finale of series tonight so roadshow on the Hayes.I saw the T.A.R.D.I.S in the flesh.Paul MacCartney concert tonight as well so very busy in the D2 shopping centre.Cardiff rocks!!!
Back to beading now.Went to my favourite bead supply shop Crystals and Ice in the arcade by the castle.Bought some really nice lava beads and pendant to embellish.Bought some more wire and some silver findings.They have started to stock Sculpey polymer clay and had some good texture mats and cutters.I could spend hours in there and a small fortune too.However I was good today.
Still debating how to make the studio nicer to work in and will post pics when done.Love to all my beading buddies,Anne.
