Treasure Hunting at Home...
These are some shelves in my studio. I think they look really organized and labeled. Ahhh...looks can be deceiving. It is time to organize this area and focus on the beads and charms.
Hmmm...now you can see in this closer view that things are not what they appeared. In my haste to clear space on my worktable I have the habit of shoving stuff onto the shelves. In order to contain the small bits and pieces I discovered turning over the lids and using them to contain the stuff. Now I feel really organized and I have space to work in. However Mr. C hates this as it isn't neat and correct.
What? More overturned lids with bits and pieces stuffed into them. What on earth could be filling these lids? Time to sort and see what I actually have.
I poured the contents of the lids onto my work table. This is a true treasure hunt! I really have no idea what all I have stuffed away. I hope I am not the only one who does this. Please tell me I am normal. :o) I do get easily overwhelmed so I have to do this in small stages.
Wow! Treasure hunting resulted in lots of really great finds. I found purchases I had made on holiday as long as a year ago. I found beads I thought I needed to buy but fortunately already had. I found items for special gifts for family and friends. I realized that I had done a lot of shopping last year. I also found I was very short on storage space to incorporate some of these treasures. Well that is another post I am sure.
I didn't take a photo but I can honestly tell you that the lids are now emptied and placed correctly on their boxes.
I better get beading now...
Spring is glorious here. Our roses are beginning to bud profusely. Lots of pollen though! Ah-Choo!!
I spent my day hostessing the local Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center. With this beautiful weather I was surprised I didn't have more visitors. Actually they were out enjoying the local annual car show, the local home and garden show and lots more activities too numerous to name. Tomorrow will be my day to enjoy a couple of local events.
Another month of celebrations is coming up so I will be busy in my studio. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts. I do hope you are really happy creating...
