I've been hearing about the Twilight series of books by Stefanie Meyer for a while, but have been resisting as I prefer to make stuff than read stuff in my so called spare time. This weekend however the local bookshop had a 3 for 2 offer so I decided to go for it. Needless to say there has been absolutely no beading or knitting in this house. The 1st book in particular was really engrossing, I love finding a new book that intrigues and excites. So much on TV these day seems to be recycled ideas, it was fun to find something new. Maybe I should try & make room for more reading instead of making.
I am a bit of a hippy at heart, although I am a bit to young to have been a flower child (I was a New Romantic as a teenager). I love the individuality and colourfulness of the arty, hippy style and like to express that love of colour in my jewellery and I seem to be increasingly drawn to nature as inspiration for my beadwork.
