Stuff Beaders Say

Feb 24, 2012

"Only four thousand dollars for these crystals? What a deal!"
Beads in the refrigerator - again!

You might have seen some of these "Stuff People Say" short videos on YouTube and other places around the web, and now, Beadwork magazine editor Melinda Barta and Founding Editor Jean Campbell have teamed up to bring you one just for us: Stuff Beaders Say! 

Do any of these sound familiar to you?

  • "Wait, just one more round!"
  • "Can you thread this for me?"
  • "I really need more beads."
  • "They're small, so I can sneak them into the house."

Take a few minutes and watch as Melinda and some of the awesome ladies who work here at Interweave reenact the things that we beaders do and say more often than we'd like to admit!

I will say this: even my husband laughed at this video when he recognized some of this Stuff Beaders Say!

Fun!  I like the "packing the box" scene.  I won't give away the punch line, but it did make me laugh out loud.  So did the dustbuster.

Around our house, what you hear when any food, medical, or other container is emptied of its original contents is:  "I can use that to store beads."  

My favorite is when DH changes the vacuum cleaner bag, holds up the old one, and asks:  "Do you want me to check this for beads?"

I loved this video.  I laughed so hard because I have said alot of those things.  Haven't doe the sweeper but have done alot of triangles  sliding the beads into it and dumping them into a bag to be sorted later........Great job!

Yep, I can relate to a lot of that. Only thing missing is, "my eyes are burning but I'm almost done."
