Sorry, this picture is not the greatest.... This is what my bead table looks like at the moment. As much as I try to only work on a couple of things at a time (and put things away when I am done) sometimes my method is to have several ideas laid out at once - kind of like a brainstorm - and then work on things as they excite me. Since moving my studio into the room off of our living room this past summer, my goal of keeping my desktop "cleaner" has been pretty achievable - except for this week.

You'll see at the top a few completed pieces that haven't been put away yet. And then "groupings" of other things. Mostly pendants getting paired up with matching beads. I had created a necklace with a Jade Scott cloud and hot air balloon, but I think it is too complicated and not wearer friendly so that needs a redo. For another cloud of hers I have thoughts of kites and/or birds. Hmmmmm.

Also, in case you didn't already know, Michael's has 50% off their bead strands this week! My Michael's has gotten lots of new strands in so that was exciting! They also started stocking some of the Vintage Grove collection. Happy beading!

Of course I read this post just as I'm finishing lunch and about to head up to Michael's for a few NEEDS.

Knowing that bead strands are 50% means that I'll end up with some WANTS as well. Goodness!!

Thanks for the tip though!
