Craziest thing on my bead table right now - that would be the GI Joe boot that was left there by my son! :)

Here is my BTW posting.

well my table is covered in beady stuff, but dut to the lack of lighting, my table also has six lamps of various kinds, and four magnafiers, three of them are also lamps....guess that is what happens when you love to bead, but are going blind....getting old sucks sometimes!

Damn. I am behind the 8-ball again! These pics are great! I love the stack of envelopes... shipping might not be fun, but it means customers and orders, right? That is what I would live to see on my bead table! I am still mired in a heady pool of soup.... so limited blogging for me!
Enjoy the day!

Spirited Earth said...

Love your new beads ..beautiful.
the weirdest thing on my table, an old bottle of Jean Nate splash cause i ran out of alcohol to clean some acrylic off a brush.

SummersStudio said...

Ha, my ugly was worse than your ugly a couple of days ago! Your new beads are beautiful and I think it is wondeful that you and Jess are working together.

Ashleigh Becker said...

Hmm. the craziest thing must be the wave cutting scissors (make a wave design on paper) weird because they'd never help me in jewelry making & I have no idea how they got there but they've been there for weeks! Maybe I should put them away.

Today I have a spring necklace layed out ready to put together. It is a soft green with Spring lampwork beads. The table is a mess, but it look like Spring exploded in my house.
I really like the yellow beads. Pretty spring colors

Not as funny as some but I have a picture my 8 yr. old granddaughter drew of me - complete with glasses and grey hair. I smile everytime I look at it. Love your new beads - come on spring!!!

Hi Heather, thanks for the lovely news letter, i am new to bloging & look forward to your posts & i love your new beads after looking at snirt(snow & dirt) for the last month it's refreshing to see something spring like. i do have a blog but do not have a camera so i will share what i found on my table last week while cleaning up from a project no word of a lie i found a very long whisker, i think i may of had a little nosy visitor through the nite by the name of Sabre Doo(my long haired,long whiskered maine coon)at first i had no idea what it was,she was sitting there looking up at me with a silly grin! Have a Great Day!

The craziest thing on my bead table right now is a paw print kit that my dog got for Christmas. It's to make their cute little paw print into an ornament. I love that beautiful Boston Terrier baby. swopemelmel

P.s. I'm LMAO at "snirt". Thanks for that one somethingunique!!!!!

My crazy item is under my table. It's a faux fur foot massager. I slip my tootsies into the pockets, turn it on and enjoy a good rub while I audition my beads. Lin Standke

Here is my BTW post! I can't wait for Spring!

Jennifer Cameron said...

I had fun writing today's post. It deals with my neurotic tendency to...well, you'll just have to read it ;o)

Kylie Parry Studios said...

I'm loving the new pink on your beads! Puts me in a spring mood!
Didn't have time to take a pic today...but here is my slightly stale post :)

Rebekah said...

Loved the tour Heather! I wish I'd realized it was Wednesday before I cleared off my tables yesterday. I think I only had a clear space of about 4x4 inches! I finally resorted to stringing necklaces on the floor! And then once the necklaces were finished I went at my tables like a whirlwind - every speck of dust, stray crumb of clay, wire trimming, loose bead, etc... gone!

Last time I did a major cleaning (on New Years Eve!) I found a few things that I didn't know were missing yet!

I'll have to keep my camera handy for next week... Before I let the whirlwind loose! ;-)

P.S. I have been reading your blog for quite some time now, and just wanted to say I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm always looking forward to your new posts. Thanks for sharing it all! :-)

Coty said...

The strangest thing on my bead table is a fat tabby cat! He's my bead buddy. I love your new beads!

Littletreats said...

Such pretty things! I am just dropping in to tell you I've given you a Stylish Blogger award -

I love seeing your new beads and projects, so thank you.

I love the pictures. I just want to keep looking at them. This isn't really crazy, but it's somthing I don't have on my table everyday. It's a wedding vail with a very long train and lots of bead work. I'm making jewelry for a wedding right now.
