The little beads that need drilling, sanding, glazing or sorting into bags get put into these cute buckets on my studio shelves to await their turn on the table. Today I drilled the pile needing holes and realized they were a whole bucket of spring. Little robins, bluey birds, crocuses and tulips. With scads of butterflies which we won’t get until well into the summer but I’m an optimist.
So I did what all happy bead and button jar owners do and poured them out to play with.
The buckets I use for organizing are from Ikea. They’re adorable and come in lots of sizes.
