Got Beads ?
I'm sitting here typing this post in just total disbelief. Why, you ask? I've been asked to do a Cigar Box Purse Workshop at someone's home next month for 5 to 8 ladies. And instead of purchasing pre-made, run-of-the-mill purse handles, I want the students to make their own, using wire, beads and other findings with holes in them already.
Remember a couple of weekends ago when I posted about weeding out and reorganizing all of my beads, baubles and other jewelry findings? Yeah, well, out of ALL those jars I filled, this is what I ended up with as far as pieces that had holes in them (darn it). These aren't NEARLY enough items for the ladies to choose from to construct their handles!
So now I've got to go out and hunt down MORE beads, MORE baubles and bits.
Isn't it funny (or maybe not so funny) how we have all this *stuff* that we can't seem to keep a handle on in our boxes, jars, drawers, cabinets, studios, corners . . . and sometimes we STILL don't have what we need when we start a project? Sigh
