Your messy beading table could win you a set of storage and organizing containers, plus a $50 gift certificate to Happy Mango Beads. Just take a picture of your messy beading space and email it to Happy Mango Beads before January 30, 2014.

Just like another commenter asked, what if I work at more than just my beading table/station?   Some times I bead at my designated beading table, other times, I bead in my living room at the couch and chair.  All these areas are messy.

I have another subject to bring up.  Do other beaders jump from project to project?  Everytime I get a new magazine, look at the Beading Daily site, or window shop on Pinterest: I become inspired to jump to another and yet another new project.  It feels so crazy, frustrating, and inspiring.  Does anyone else go through this and how do they bring themselves back to focus.

My new year challenge was to go back to my UFOs and complete them.  I finished one so far.

Yes Karen, I too flit from one project to another.  It might be because I need further inspiration and leave things on hold. Ideas do come along even if its 6 months, a year later!

I get a new magazine and see another necklace that I simply have to do. I then go on a bead requisition spree, get all the beads, plus some more that might also be the ones!

Sometimes I start the next beadwork project then see another magazine or idea on the web and think I'll try that one.

There are so many designs its simply mesmerizing, deciding which to do next!

With all my UFO's and Must Do's, I found writing each on a slip of paper and then drawing one out of a bag was a good way.

Now I'm after an impressive project for the next Guild Show, ..have to get started soon...
