Week 2: Challenge Accepted

I missed Week 1 of this year’s polymer clay challenge – and I’ll probably miss a bunch of other weeks – while I was away in Calgary but I’m hopping in to week 2 with a few of this week’s beads.

It’s a pretty random collection of beads because I’m trying to use up some of the bead canes in my boxes as well as fill orders. Still, it made an interesting bead pile.

If you’re a polymer clayer interested in a weekly challenge, Katie runs a good group for it on Facebook. You can find the information in her post here. And I suppose since this is beads on a Wednesday it qualifies as a Bead Table Wednesday post, too!

Week 11: Bucket of Spring

Bucket of Spring

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.
