A Successful Shopping Trip

Yesterday, my husband and I took a mini road-trip to Shipwreck Beads in Lacey, WA.  If you have the chance to go here, do it.  It's a VERY large bead store with great prices.  We (I) spent an hour just wandering the aisles.  I actually haven't been making as many beaded pieces lately, but am probably going to start up again after this trip.  Here are some pictures of the store:

Here is a picture of the beads I got.  I was definitely feeling the bright colors yesterday.  I'm thinking a "Parrot Line" may soon be up on my etsy shop.  My favorite beads of the day were the crochet beads; they are so colorful and fun!  I would love to make some of these myself.

A stunning piece of photography- My goodies from the trip.
We ended the day with a wander around the mall, dinner at Cheesecake Factory and a movie (Fast Five-actually pretty entertaining).  While at the mall, I got this sweet little magnet.  It makes me feel really inspired; the little birdy is painting and learning to be an artist.

  1. OH MY GOSH. I want to go now. Who cares that it's on a completely different coast than me?! Great shop and lovely finds!

  2. Wow! I'm so jealous! The only bead store around here is one aisle at Micheals.


Thanks for your comments! I love hearing from my readers :)
