Reorganizing & Updating!

Two days ago while working in my studio I became frustrated with the wasted space beneath the tall tables my bead racks are on. I said to my friend and helper, Nancy, "I want shelves under these tables." I saw the picture of the shelves in my mind. This is usually what happens when I want something. Yesterday, after walking at the Zoo, I stopped at Target and there were two of the perfect shelves left! My daughter came to work yesterday and together we put in the shelves and rearranged the bead studio. Amazing what a small change can do for a room. We put the desk against the wall, added the shelves, turned the area rug sideways and the room has twice the space as before. So much more efficient!

While at the Rocky Mountain Bead Society Bazaar, my credit card machine crashed and died erasing every single charge I had taken over the weekend! Fortunately, I have trained myself to always get a phone number on charges. Everyone I called was so gracious and gave me their card numbers so I could hand enter them. This is why I love the beading community!
Being the third credit card machine I have had in about a 6 month period. I'm done with this system.  Each time I was selling at a show, I would be on the phone with tech support for hours. This is after standing in my booth all day. I asked some of my fellow vendors what they used, then researched my options. I am going with an iPhone and the Mophie credit card reader. Marcia DeCoster has this system and loves it!!

My new iPhone arrived yesterday. Good thing my daughter, Jennifer has one. She is my tech support! In fact, I buy every piece of technology she gets so she can help me. In fact, she has been interviewing for a job with Apple as a tech support person. I always say, "Grow Your Own Tech Support!" This is the truth of humor. I did grow my own.
All the wonderful colors in my studio just made me realize how much I adore being surrounded with beauty. Color is my life! I decided to grab my new camera and take a few shots of my house. My daughter said, " Hey, have you ever taken a picture of your tin toy collection?" No, I hadn't.
Roses from my Garden and the Purple Chase in my living room with colorful pillows all lined up.

More organizing tomorrow, then back to kit making!


  1. Love your roses, love your green wall, wish I could see your passionflower vines, and have Mexican food with you at that excellent place in Lemon Grove. You have TOTALLY MOTIVATED ME to get into my own studio and reorganize it.
    Perfect timing!

  2. Oh how I wish I had a bead studio! It looks wonderful, as do your roses and pillows!

  3. iPhone accepts credit cards. This world drives me crazy sometimes.. How is that possible?! Only 10-15 years ago the smartest thing in the house was a TV or fridge.. I wonder what's next :)
