However as much as I want to throw some food and a change of clothes onto the bus and set off to do some more exploring... actually I want this quite a lot, we used the car for last weekend... so I've had quite bad bus withdrawal symptoms this week. I have to be all grown up and actually get some boring grown up stuff done. Our garden is a jungle, the house looks like we've been burgled and er, I know the cleaning has been "teenage" as I can still see some brick dust (from May).
So what has this to do with beads you may well be asking if you've read this far?
My title was not about all the boring domestic stuff that needs to be done; it's about all the fabulous collection news that's hit this week from Trollbeads, X by Trollbeads and Redbalifrog, along with 2 lovely blog posts I have planned for this month and I'm also going to tackle my bead box, do a bit of sorting and some bracelet breaking!!
This morning I'm going to tackle the box, I'm well onto overspill now so I've bought some more pipe cleaners and a tuperware box and I'm going to have a sort whilst I'm breaking some bracelets up. I promised myself that I would do this in August when life got a little less crazy (I think I promised this before I bought a bus) as I want to *really* look at what I've got collection wise.
The recently released collection by Redbalifrog on Friday (Me'lange), the World Trollbead Day bead and the upcoming Fall and Halloween collections from Trollbeads and X by Trollbeads have left me once again with a huge want vs budget dilemma. I want so much from these collections (a good thing because they're exciting) but I want to spend smart so I get the most use out of what I can buy first... hence the tidy up.
Who knows if I get my bead box sorted I might even be inspired to start on the house and garden...
What are you most looking forward to in August?
