First step was to clean out - drawers and the closet. I gathered art and sewing stuff from all over the house and organized it to fit inside the closet. Then I moved my drafting table (20 years old) from the den (it was covered with papers, Sara's old Dell from college and a lot of junk) and added 2 work tables I bought at Walmart and a new lamp for extra light. I moved the sewing machine and all the fabric in there as well. So now I can follow my whims more easily and jump from sewing to watercolor to beading as fast as my desires hit! I think my ADD tendencies taking over now that my time is my own!

Next I decided I would take up beading again. With a closet full of beads I emailed Shawn and begged for instructions on how she makes those gorgeous seed bead bracelets. She fired back some instructions and I was off and running. I made a couple of bracelets to donate to the silent auction that my golf league is sponsoring in June.

- sigh, how does she do that?
Gotta get back to work - hoping to FINISH something!
