grins There is no way i'm ever gonna use all of the ones i've made! I'm gonna end up giving em away or swapping them.
Oh oh.. i've been getting beads at ACMoore... they have a huge selection, and they have bags of assorted beads in color schemes (like a bag of blue, pink, brown etc..) where some of the beads are glass, some are plastic. Its a great way to get a small stash started for not a lot of money.
I've stuck pictures of my markers up on my blog if you need ideas.
