Stuff in, but more going out

My office is getting crammed. I need to impose another SPACE BUDGET…

probably on the bead collection for one. That will be hard! My immediate reaction is that I need another pop crate (I use an old Coca Cola crate to hold the bead containers, or everything that’s not in a tube anyway.) I saw one yesterday and thought I didn’t need it, but that was before i emptied the bead chest in the attic.

How did I think I could take the contents of  a 5 drawer chest and put it  into one pop crate? Wishful… no delusional thinking!

The beads belong in my office and  I intend to sell the chest.

I used all the  cards &  tags I’d made, so I need to make more. If I can grab the camera before I give away/mail the gifts, I’ll take a pic. I’m rather proud of my gift tags and holiday cards this year.

I also need  more baby food juice bottles/jars.  I’ll buy some custard. [I’ll force myself. Blame my Dad, he got me hooked on baby food custard years ago.]
