Bead Soup Blog Party Mess and Hoarding

Monday, January 24, 2011

Havoc abounds in my bead room in preparation of putting together a stash of various sundry items for Leslie, my BSPB partner.  I had to soften up this picture so that it doesn't look as bad as it really is.  How does "stuff" seem to accumulate all over.... a saw, chain nose pliers, hammer, .........oops, don't want to give to much away.  Well, it felt good when I was done and hope Leslie likes what I put together for her.  It will be in the mail probably tomorrow. 

Are any fellow beaders out there "hoarders"?  When it comes to my beads and bead related items (otherwise known as "my stash") that I have, there are definitely things that I put in a special place and think, I'll use that, don't know when, but I know I'll make something from it or with it some day.  Just knowing it's there gives me comfort.  I can go look at those things when I want, think of things to do with it when I wake up during the night, go through my things and have that discovery moment when you're going through your stash and you see things that you forgot you had but know you had to keep them because you knew you'd make something with it some day!!!!  Well, you get what I'm saying.

The Bead Soup Blog Party provided me with a challenge to go through "my stash" and try to become an un-hoarder.  Now, things in "my stash" may not seem that special to someone else, but we each have our own special "stashes" that make us be hoarders.  So, I can thank Lori Anderson and her BSBP for helping me to become an un-hoarder!!!  Thank you, Lori.

Well, my bead room has been cleaned up and I feel so much better!!!  What has the BSBP done for you???

Until then....Happy Beading!!!

Your room looks neat... my stash has taken over every flat surface in the house... including most of the floor in the family room (the room is 18* 16 ft) and there are little paths through the beads available to walk around the room!

And then there's my lampwork studio... you can't even tell that I'm working on a steel surface!

Juuuuust when I get things in order -- a bead show comes to town. Must be a conspiracy.
