Break Time!

Yesterday was my last show for the year. Now it is time to kick back for a few weeks and not feel so pressured.

I am going to use this time to seriously organize my work room. The goal (which will be reached!) is to have it done by the end of the year, focusing on starting out the year fresh, organized and getting some good energy flowing. I have my sights set on a prosperous 2010. Sales are really picking up in all of the retail locations my pieces are in, and will be focusing on adding more stores this coming year.

I am excited about a new year of blogger challenges with Rings & Things, Art Beads and Beadin Path. They are all so much fun to work with, supportive, and best of all, I feel I have made some new friends.

The organization began with tubs of 'homeless' beads. These are the beads that are scattered across my work table or in a central tub because I am too lazy to put them back into their baggies.

Here is a mess in a tub

Here is the mess separated out into: beads, findings, partially strung pieces, salvageable wire (this is my boredom killer at work)

From here I will separate it out even further till everything has it place. I got a lot ahead of me!


  1. I need to follow your lead and organize my work area too! Happy holidays and a VERY prosperous new year to you!

  2. I need to organize my desk & make room to play with beads :)

  3. This is turning into a bigger challenge than I think I am up for!!! :)
