I finally had time to organize my work space and had some time to take a few pictures. So here it is my clean for the moment for the most part work space.  Hope this works.Smile I wrote about each space if you are interested it is in my photobucket at the end of my name.

I tried to put the pictures here but I wasn't able to do it.  It would help if I understood more about computers. Sometimes I feel so dump when it comes to computers. My 4 year old great grand daughter knows more about computers than what I know.Sad

I followed the directions that Popnicute gave last week but it just didn't do what I wanted it to. So please go to my Photo bucket page and look. remember also to check out what I wrote under each picture.  

 

 

 Thanks in advance for looking.

Happy Beading!!

 Hi Sue!

It was fun looking at your work space album!  Can I come over and bead with you sometime???  You have a great set up!

Regarding posting the pictures in the forum, you would need to reduce the size of your pictures considerably so that they fit - I would say reduce them by at least 50%.  Do you have picture editing software on your computer?  If not, I believe that Microsoft Windows comes with a standard image editor in its program.

Once you reduce the size and save the picture on Photobucket, copy the image code at the bottom of the picture in your Photobucket album, then paste it into your post.  If the picture is too big for the space, reduce it a little further using the photo editing software and repeat the process. 

I hope this helps!

Pictures are great and so is your setup. After 4 years full time RVing i'd like a bit more space.  Hopefully, we are here in Texas for several months so i can set up my work in the garage of our toyhauler.  You have it well organized.

Thanks Cryss.

My hubby and I are talking buying a 5th wheel and doing the very same thing. He asked me where I would put all my beading things. I said in every crook and cranny; they are small and won't take up much space LOLWink Now the weight may be a problem but of course I didn't tell him that. We are thinking of getting a bunk house to convert into my sewing/beading area. I only have two hobbies thank God. He doesn't have any other then watching sports on the television. We have friends that full time it and they spent last winter in Texas. Where at do you stay while in Texas?

Happy Beading!!

hello all,

I have found that the hardware storage equipment for nuts and bolts, is a boon for storing beads. I got a 2 feet high one with drawers----some are variable with a compartment or 2; clear plastic and hold some larger stones. Then I found 2 smaller ones with 6 drawers with compartments of 3 each, they are on a stand to swivel out for use.

Sounds like your space is very cozy and organized----nice photos. I also use some older vitamin chests with compartments for findings and clasps. Then there is the fishing tackle flat box as well, perfect for small beads too.

I will not post a pic of my beading space since we live in a small one-bedroom house with no space. I bead wherever I find room. I will however post a pic of my bead cabinet (where I keep everything) on Monday when I get the internet at my place. I like all of your guys bead spaces!

   And I bead where-ever my wife lets me set up my beading.  I have an Ott lite [table lamp], a piece of flannel [dark front, light back], my bead stash [mostly in a small cart -  $400.00 to $600.00 worth], a few tools, and my beeswax/paraffin block for my thread [oh yes, and my needles and bifocal magnifier with built-in light].

It works, and I have fun.

I had a whole room dedicated to my beads, but then once my son was born, we turned that room into his room!  We moved my workspace down into the basement (which is where the previous owner of the house had her craft space), but my son HATES hanging out down there, and I'm not too fond of the space myself.  (It's dark, it's hard to heat, and it's cramped.)  So, this summer I would bring up the items that I need to work on a particular project and I would work on the back porch with the windows open and the breeze blowing in.  Now that it's too cold to work out there, I have moved into the dining room (yikes!) where I have to clear everything off the dining room table before dinner time.  Hmmm...  We're gonna have to get creative about where I set up until my son gets older!
