Paper Bead Trade

Posted on Jun 20, 2010 in Events and Experiences | 11 comments

Over the past few months I have been blessed to meet so many nice ladies who like me, enjoy more like obsessed making paper beads:)  It is habit forming of the good kind.  Wouldn’t it be nice to see and feel other people’s work?  I thought of this while trying to organize my mess at home.  I could be a good candidate for that show “Hoarders” if I don’t do something about it 🙂  And so the idea of trading paper beads with you guys was born, and it would be a nice way to get rid of some of my beads, findings which can be put to good use made into something with paper beads.  Here’s a peek into my clutter;


Above, is an area in my bedroom where I have suitcases full of beads, ribbons, paper, you name it I probably have it.  I have stuff all over the floor as well, I am one of those that have to visually see the everything, I guess organization is not for me.  Just to prove that I am not one of those who cannot part with their things, I am sharing it with you 🙂

Katherine who is also a “collector” like me offered to share some of her beads as well.  Eveline also has neat ideas.  So,  next  day I will be posting on how we are going to do this and I appreciate any input from you.  You can leave me a comment or if you’re shy, just email me, I am like that sometimes when I visit other blogs.

Anyway, here’s more of the mess I have all over my house.  This is downstairs in the family room.


You should have seen our formal dining room table, this is one reason why I don’t entertain, aside from being an introvert, I don’t have space for people to sit and eat!  The good side of it is, I am a happy camper and I don’t need to spend money on therapy.   Kidding aside, I need to clean up, this is why I am posting this for everyone to see 🙂



Let me know, by leaving me a comment here or email me, for those of you who already have emailed me I just need your addresses.   We need at least 16 participants.  Tomorrow we will get into the details on how we are going to do this.  I don’t want you to be intimidated by this, we are going to be doing something really simple, I promise 🙂
