Today I thought I would show you one of my other tables - the clay table.
As you can imagine this is where I actually spend most of my time.
And this is no camera trick - I actually cleaned off my clay desk last week. (And it's still clean!)
This is an older photo of my clay desk, but it pretty much looked like this last Friday!
My scrap pile - there is no waste with polymer clay. I glob my scraps according to colors and Jess mixes them for me while he watches cat videos on youtube. I cover this with wax paper to keep out the dust bunnies.
The whole bead table - just to show you it wasn't a trick!
These are all my canes - wrapped in wax paper. I always store things according to their use - so the canes I use the most are on top and closest to me. (For those who don't speak clay - canes are long tubes of designs that I cut into paper thin slices and apply to my beads.)
Clay wrapped up - clay doesn't dry out, my only enemy is dust. The lower right-hand corner is one of my texture plates, reclaimed from an old window blind sampler book that Jess brought home from an interior design office. (He collects the weirdest and best stuff.)
Molds and rubber stamps. I have a few of these baskets hanging on my pegboard - but these are the ones I use the most.
And on the beady bead table - these incredibly awesome lampwork beads from my friend Genea! Oh how I love her work. I keep staring at these two sets - they are perfect. You know how you get those beads and you are afraid you won't do them justice, so you just stare at them. This is one of those sets. I'm thinking they need to be paired up with one of my new starfish pendants though.
So dear friends - what's on your Bead Table?
Check out the Bead Table Wednesday flickr group and add your photos.
And bonus points for messy desks - they are my favorites!
