Bead mania...

First I'd like to share the next page in my Christmas journal. I'm don't even think I like my page. Think I need to give it some time before I decide. I guess it feels a bit strange working on a Christmas journal now, so I find it hard to get in the right creative mood. Still another page is done and only 2 to go...

I love my beads!!! I have had so much fun today playing with them. And I have made my very first dangly bead bracelet. I guess the colour I would be going for was quite obvious. LOL! I can see this getting rather addictive.

I have found that my old bead pliers are not so good though. I really struggled with the cutters and it took me a lot of effort, a lot of wiggling and pain in my hand to get through the headpins. If anyone can recommend some good pliers that doesn't cost a fortune, that would be great please. I'd love to make another bracelet straight away but my poor hand is too achy from the bad cutters.

I have ordered a new bead storage bag which I hope will arrive very soon too! The way I keep them now, it's hopeless to get a good view over what you have. So I'm longing for my bag to arrive so I can sort it all and get it looking pretty (and useful!) Any good bead shop recommendations are very much appreciated...
