I signed up for another one of Lori Anderson's famous 'hops' - I'm a little nervous about this one. It's called the Bead Hoarders Blog Hop. A name like that has pretty serious connotations attached to it. Hoarding?? Ew, I've seen that television show.... I promise there are no dead cats in my bead stash!!
MyElements. Her stuff is colorful and quirky - you just have to have tons of it! (NO, this is not a disease!!)
Then there are the drawer thingys - I have several of these.... I love them because you can see into them but they keep everything nicely organized - and they stack!!
These are great for the piles I like to sort by color or weird type....nice dontcha think?
Now... really, can anyone this organized and neat be called a HOARDER!!?? Nay!
But that's alright - I'm gonna work with it. I've been looking at all my lovely bits and trying to decide what to try to use for this little hop. I decided that it would be fun to do a theme. What I came up with is monochromatic ~ very different for me.
This my usual style:
I love color - I love mixing colors - I love trying out combinations that you might not normally see together. So this hop will be a little stretch for me, which I think should always be the point of these events. I want to learn new things, try new stuff, shake things up and see what falls out!
So - come on back for Part 2 of the Bead Hoarders Hop and see what fell out!!
