I shared a picture of my beads with a new beader I met and her comment was , you are organized. I am not. I am a messy beader.
I had to come clean with her. I am a very messy beader too. I look good at a glance. All the beads I am not using are very organized. However, once put on a tray, that is all over. I have a very bad habit of doing more than one project at a time and then stuff gets left on a tray and then I add to it, and before I know it, I have this situation to deal with. Problem is, I do not. I just keep using trays until I have no choice to clean, and I am pretty much at that point now !!!
Nice shelf, my wonderful husband gave me all these tiny shelves for all my bead trays !!I had waiting over 20 years for something like this , it is wonderful !!! About five are set up for a project I am about to start, beaded tassles part two, but the rest, just pure mess. I am ashamed to say !!!
some stuff does not even belong, like the old vintage toy and the battery that somehow ended up on this tray !!!
here is a paper plate of beads on another tray of beads, this is actually a lid to a storage box. Everything is fair game when I need a tray to work on !!!
some of my felt, sequin and seed bead work, some thread, scraps of felt and some patterns I made. This is a hot mess for sure !!!
this is showing two layers. a top one, and then another layer below. Seriously, I have issues !!!
I really have no words for the next tray. this is a hot mess. Everything is on this tray. Beads, charms, finished products, products I bought to take apart. Really, there are no words. It is embarrassing !!!
My work table. It has been worse, but that is not an excuse. I have to clean before I start another project. I can use the excuse I have a lot going on, but I have all the time in the world to keep my studio clean, even with things being a bit crazy the last six weeks. I just do not do it. I have moments when it is all perfect, and I am so happy and proud, and then within weeks, back to the dark side, lol !! The stuff in back is supposed to be there, but the other stuff, not supposed to be there !!
On a positive note, two more pieces I ordered came in today. Some cute tiny stone elephants and some blue stripped agate.
Like how I changed the subject, lol !! I can distract myself from the mess !!
Well, off to put away all the new beads from today and yesterday and I am going to take down a tray and see what I can do to get this mess gone !!
Are you a messy or organized creative person ?
I want so bad to be organized, but I am not, I am a mess most of the time !!!
Thanks for stopping by !!
I would love to hear what you think !!!
