BTW, Etsy, and Announcements

After yesterday's rambling post about my online activity, I've got lots of beady goodness for you today! (can I get a hurray) So let's jump right in!

Bead Table Wednesday
I've been continuously working on getting my haikus and descriptions written. . .so I made "pile" of the completed ones so I could see my progress!

However, I still haven't created anything at the bead table in the last few weeks between trips, illness, and the clutter. So, I did prep for some creativity by CLEANING my many tables!
Here's how they started off

Here's how they ended up

I felt a sense of accomplishment as soon as that was done. Naturally, I headed out to Michael's and Hobby Lobby for a few new supplies!!
Let me admit that just about everything I bought was either on sale, on clearance, or I used a coupon. So it was fairly frugal!

I'm off to play with my new supplies and see how big of a mess I can make on the clean table!


  1. Oh YIPPPPEEEE for an organized desk! Mine is a spectacle - I did laundry ALL DAY not a bead in site : ( Looks like lots of fun in store for you.

  2. I'm really excited about it. . .and kinda glad that I got laundry done on Sunday while it rained. I'm looking forward to getting my hands into my beads again. :)

  3. Don't you just love getting organized, so you can just go and mess it all up again! Hee hee!
    Happy creating Hope, with your new finds.

  4. I DO love being organized. However, that much open space does overwhelm me sometimes. But, it WILL get messed up again for sure!

  5. I'm jealous of your clean table! I've discovered my muse dislikes clean tables, but my organized (neat freak) side wants it neat and tidy!!

  6. Rebekah, Please don't be jealous. I can assure you that it won't stay that way for very long! ;) My clean freak nature PALES in comparison to my lazy, cluttered sides. . .they kinda gang up on that poor, little tidy person in me (she's very, very tiny)!

  7. Your bead tables look great. Mine is so bad right now no way will I take a photo of it. You got lots of things done!

  8. Leslie, Thanks! It felt like I got some stuff done and I'm really trying to keep it that way. Yet, it's a disaster again. Of course, that's always a sign of productivity. So, I guess it's good that I've actually been productive. Sounds like you've been productive too!! ;)


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.

I awoke the other day with many thoughts about the 100 Day project and decided to jot them down here to share with you. Some of the bits I g...
