It's messy, it's disorganized, and it's hard to find what I need. My interests have grown, I have acquired new tools and new materials, and my original organization just hasn't been able to keep up with me.
So! That's my project for the New Year. It's time to bring order to craft room chaos.
...And guess what I'm tackling first.
That's right: the beads.
Originally, I sorted beads by project.
But, as I've grown and stretched myself, I realize that's not working anymore. When I go looking for beads, I search by color. Not really size, not really material--color.
So, yeah. Time for epic bead organization overhaul.
|I totally went through and sorted out all of the colors from this mix.|
How many were there? Six.
I'm on day 3 of said epic overhaul, and have been making some awesome--albeit slow--progress. I'm taking my time to do it right--I've found that if I push myself to go too fast, I just drop beads everywhere.
I suppose I could complain that it's tedious, but there is part of me that really enjoys staring at pretty things and putting them in little containers.
So, if you're needing me, I'm going to be on the sofa surrounded by bead boxes, sipping tea and listening to music.
…Making my craft room beautiful, one bead at a time.
