Preparing crystals in settings for my next project.

My latest creation made sitting in a camping  chair under a tent in the rain.  Yes, I  can  literally bead anywhere.

 My friend bought me two beautiful cosmetic fukubukuro on her last trip to Japan.
 Natural Glace is not a brand I have heard of before.
 The second bag is Coffret D'or which is my favourite Japanese cosmetics brand.

I love all the products in these bags!

Sydney Trip

I recently spent a week in Sydney with my daughter. Here's my shopping haul.
 Fabric from Marimekko, which I will turn into cushion covers.
 Uniqlo, which is a recent opening in Australia.

 Kinokuniya, my favourite store. I think I went there almost everyday.

My daughter hopes to go on a study tour to New York for uni, so she's reading up on all the places to visit during free time there.

 Forever 21 - also new to Australia.

 H & M. I really like this store for cheap clothing.

I'm a terrible photographer!
