Chaos!

No matter how hard I try to keep my bead bench tidy and ready for work,

it always ends up looking like this before my current piece is finished.

It is just the way I work. I wish I kept better order in my studio. The trouble is that as soon as I am looking for beads for one piece, I find beads I would like to combine for the next piece. Then, since I don’t want to forget the combination of beads I just stumbled upon, I leave them out on the bench to work on next. Sometimes the idea for an earring is so impulsive that I stop what I’m doing to make the pair I have in mind. Stuff on top of stuff. This might not be such a problem if I had a bigger studio, but the room is tiny. Eventually, the ideas for “that next piece” end up piling around me on the floor.Image

I’m not complaining though. It feels good to be busy getting ready for the next show. My favorite! The 37th annual Island Arts Association Holiday Fair in Bar Harbor.  Friday, December 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, December 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  At the Atlantic Oceanside Conference Center on Eden Street.

Hey, that’s barely a week away! ( And it’s the reason my blog has been so stale.)
