Find my BEAD SOUP REVEAL <---------there

Today's edition of Bead Table Wednesday is less "what's currently on my bead table" and more "what I would RATHER was on my bead table."

I'm trying to catch up on some more of the business-y tasks that I've let fall by the wayside and am using the temptation of playing with my beads to kick my butt into gear.

It helps that I'm staring at these! I put one of my printer's drawers to use by filling it with some of my homeless beads (you know. . .those beads that just haven't found the right place in your stash yet.)
Just looking at that beautiful array of beads definitely gets my blood pumping to get some work done.

In addition, I dreamed a few more designs the other day (those usually turn out to be the best ones. . .usually.) This is KINDA part of one of the dreamt designs.

While I had my ICE Resin out, I decided to go ahead and add some to the donuts I was working on a little while back.

You may be able to see in both of those photos that I still need some work on my resin skillz!

I'll get to do that (since I need to coat the other side of the washers) just as soon as I finish up these other tasks. Sigh.

Sooooo, now I want to see what fun is on YOUR bead table. Join up with the Bead Table Wednesday Flicker Group!

Part of those business-related tasks include getting some items ready for listing in the shop. I HAVE gotten a little of that done, so today I was able to add a brand new bracelet!!

  6. Look at all those beads! I love the way you have them all organized in the printer's tray. Your Autumn Bloom Bracelet is sooo pretty. I really like the idea of those donuts and the Ice Resin. I've used it a few times and it does take some practice....darn bubbles. I think they look great and I'm sure you'll make something wonderful with them.


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

Winding down the 100DayProject

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...
