The above photo shows where I sit to actually bead. I have my music there and all the other beading items at hand. Moving slightly to the left is this area.
I use it to stack the pieces I am currently working on. I get bored, frustrated, or loose sight of a design so I just box it up and set the beading mats here for later use, hoping inspiration comes quickly. You will also notice that I use a lot of late post it notes for lists, design, or just notes on what I am working on.
Moving further to the left is this area:
Here I have more storage for projects that I need more time to figure out what to do with. Some I even leave on my paper mat just so I can see them and keep them currently in my memory!
Now for the important part...Can you see the plastic containers in the photo above? They are my organization idea that I wanted to show you. There is a larger one to the top right of photo. Inside it are several more smaller ones.
These containers can be purchased at just about any hobby/craft store! I can't remember how much they cost because I have had them for so long and reuse them all the time!
Stay tuned...I am working on a freebie beading pattern to be posted here!
