These little tubes of beads were scattered out all over the place - wherever I had last left them, I guess. The welter of silver pins and beads on the front left is where I was working on my Icicle necklace. And you can see the Fireline in the back that I was using for the donuts.
This kind of thing is part of my organizational system, such as it is. For things I'm "actively" working on I keep these little containers of beads around. And I picked up all the assorted findings that had gotten scattered around and filled most of one with headpins and another one with earring wires.
Those things in front are little "butter pats" that belonged to my Mom. They can be very useful. Behind that are those little square boxes that sit flat - I really like those, and would like to get some more.
I did get a little bit of experimenting with polymer clay done, too, but nothing I'd care to share just yet!
