Bead fair at Kempton

Last weekend I helped work on a stool at the Rock Gem 'n' Bead show at Kempton Park racecourse. This is my second time helping out small family business Beadbuyer, who sell beautiful semi-precious stone beads. It was really good fun actually and completely opens your eyes to a whole market that no one knows about, I cannot believe the amount of money some people spend on beads!! Although, some amazing jewellery could be made, especially if combined with the 98% pure silver beads and pendants that are also for sale on the stool.

who wants a moleskine?...

...when you can make your own! 
I have spent this morning and yesterday afternoon making this journal. I will probably use it when I go back to Uni in September. I used spare pages from an un-used Moleskine cahier and 1m card and book cloth for the covers. I also managed to teach myself how to add decorative inside covers and an elasticised fastening!
