I am trying not to sweat the small stuff.
Recently, I saw this idea of storing and using your glitter in old salt and pepper shakers. And I liked it. So, I filed it away in the back of my brain.
Lo, and behold, last week, I was looking for lamps at Treasure Mart. And I found this. It cost $3. A treasure!
I washed it and filled it with six beading items that I can never find around my house and studio. I am not as organized in my beading supplies as I could be. Part of the problem is that I work in many different areas of the house, and I pack things to take with me whenever I leave the house. So, the small bits are everywhere. It is maddening to spend more time looking for my jump rings than it takes to make the project.
Small bits I can now locate:
1. head pins and eye pins
2. jump rings
3. ear wires
4. crimp beads (I know I have a whole bag of them someplace yet....see what I mean??)
5. silver spacer beads
6. black spacer beads
I can hardly wait to get a new project going so I can revel in my new organization!
