So, there was one last naughty parcel to come before I reached the "no more orders expected" point.
Time to look at what I'd got left to spend on the new collections... which now, as you might have guessed (or know if you've read yesterday's post), was a lot smaller than my original proclamation of "Ooh how exciting I have a bigger pot than usual for new collections!"
When I first started to draft this post it was small; by the time I came to publish this post it was zero... oops! (Make that two last naughty parcels to come)
So that means I not only need to pick the absolutely must have, want to use them right away pieces from my wish list, but I must also wait until next month.
Given that we are then edging towards Christmas releases, do I wait even longer to make choices out of all of the collections yet to come, ignore new ones completely and pursue an existing project (taking advantage of the US 4 for 3 promotion running in October), or dabble in the available collections now and risk no funds for anything else - argh!
This is before I even think about the Elfbeads launch and superb offerings from Great Lakes, or get touched by his noodly apendage offering from Ohm Beads.
So, before my brain implodes with the possibilities; today I am going to concentrate on the just the collections I mentioned yesterday:
Redbalifrog Frog Lock and Trollbeads Giant Lotus
Trollbeads Lapis Lazuli
Trollbeads Lotus Top and Tree of Awareness
Trollbeads Sleeping Bat and Spooky Bats Lock
X by Trollbeads Bronze DNA and Bronze Flow Links
X by Trollbeads Bronze Lovers Bond and Zip Me Lock
X by Trollbeads Hanging Around and Protect Links
X by Trollbeads Royalty and Skull Me links
As you can see both X releases scored very highly on my wish list, I love *all* of the Halloween release and I'm a big fan of the new bronze links!
For Trollbeads, again Halloween was a winner with the bats, which along with X I would wear all year around, bats & skulls are not just for October you know!
Out of the huge offering from Trollbeads for Fall, I favour just 3 key silver pieces, although they are quite substantial and 1 of the stones, from Redbalifrog it's the Frog Lock; I think that is one of the nicest locks I've ever seen.
So what to choose? Y'know what... I still don't know!
Out of my top picks which would you choose if you were me?
