Messy Blog Hop

It's a Messy Workshop Blog Hop! B'Sue Boutiques, has coordinated this fun Blog hop where a bunch of us jewelry artists and show just how messy our workshops can be; it's your chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at where we make our artistic pieces by hopping from blog to blog and seeing the pictures, videos and stories we have shared. At the bottom is the list of all the participants with the link to their blog; simply click on the one below mine to hop to the next, and so on. Please feel free to leave comments on our blogs. My "workshop" is in the corner of my living room, my living room is more of a rectangle shape so there was some unused space at one end opposite the fireplace. Key word "was", it now has my work space. I have a pretty big corner desk, that soon I added shelves to one side, then I out grew that and added another shelving unit to the other side. I use to work on the coffee table, but it was hard to keep the dog out of my beads, so I added a table to my work space. My white kitchen table houses my homemade light box...hey it works! Please enjoy our messes!!!.

  11. I clicked on one of the pictures and it made it bigger. Don't feel bad though. I had a heck of a time with my pictures too and they still aren't the way I wanted them to be. I don't know how some people got theirs where you could click on them and see every picture. Anyway I love your messy space too and keep up the good work.

    1. I know what you mean, it does help me a little having beads in smaller containers, so that I could narrow down my search.. :)

    1. I have labels on each of the bins; color coordinated bead bins, sterling, gold, clasps, charms, pendants, etc.. this way when I have a few components sitting on my work table, I can just pull a container and set the beads out to see what moves me.

  18. You have some fabulous beads, tools, and storage spaces!!! And I LOVE your corner desk! I have one too - but it's over run by my computer, loose gemstones, various paperwork, my stuffies and figurines, etc... LOL I'm about to claim the space to the left of it and put something there for storage, possibly kick my hubby's old VHS collection out of his entertainment center for storage nooks, and put shelves up! LOL This used to be just my computer room - and now, I do believe, like yours did, it's expanding!!! LOL

    Btw, if I may ask, where did you get your corner computer desk?

    And thanks for the view into your wonderfully chaotic workshop!!! Loved it, Cheri! =)
