Loved all the different shapes, sizes and colors of these beads. They make wonderful accessories to hang from your tote.
Last week I attended the California Gift Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center to hopefully, become inspired and get a few ideas for some new bags. I saw some new gift items but, unfortunately, this show, like many other shows I've gone to lately and that goes for fabric, quilt, accessories, etc. was the smallest I've seen it in the past years. Although I did come away with some good ideas I was hoping for more "out of the box" color combos and styles.
Here's a small glimpse of inspirations that I viewed at the show. Perhaps you can become inspired also!
