Sunday Bead Bloggers!!!

Hope you all had a great weekend! Mine went to fast! Yesterday Rob took Bettie to the SF Chihuahua meetup while I stayed home to work on some resin and look for lights for my booth. Its hard to find lights!!! I need some kind of clip/clamp on lights that will work for a pipe and drape set up. Also if its not 100 bucks per light, that would be a plus!
Now its time to sit with a pot of tea and do a little blog reading. Jewelry Making Who says jewelry tools are mainly for metalsmiths? There are plenty of cool tools and gadgets for beaders too!

Have you tried Ikea yet? Their stuff is generally pretty affordable - it's just a matter of finding exactly what you want.
