The return of Operation: Buried in Beads

Last year, I had too many beads and I decided to undertake Operation: Buried in Beads to try to use up some of my massive stash. Well, I still have too many beads, and I still can't figure out a way to get them all properly organized and put away, and I still don't have a dedicated workspace, so I'm doing it again. It is time to make some friggin' jewelry, and hopefully use up lots of stray beads and components in the process.

I already started, but I can't tell you what I made because it's a present for somebody! So I'll post it after it's been given. I've also got the start of a few other projects laid out, but first I have to make a couple more presents. Seriously, why is everyone having birthdays in April? And Mother's Day is right around the corner, too! Plus my birthday is just over a week away on the 1st, so I need to make myself a present because hey, I deserve it.

Anyway, back to slaving away in the bead-cave.

  3. Hahaha, yes, I could be cleaning the fridge or scrubbing the bathroom floor or bathing my dogs... using up bead stash is a good way to pass the time :)

  4. There's no such thing as too many beads. Or yarn, or nail polish, or dance pants, etc.

  5. Well, it's possible to have too many beads for the amount of space that you have to put them in. Or too many beads to justify driving up to Phoenix for the Rings & Things trunk show next month ;)

  6. Well, I hate to brag, but....before and after my daughter was born I had to combine the contents of two rooms into one and all the while I was still acquiring new beads.

    It's a little trick I call SOS; Superior Organizational Skills. :-)

  7. I very much want to be organized, but every time I try, I fail. I'm a very scatter-brained, easily distracted person.
