Happy holidays! (Whatever type you follow.)
Things are getting pretty busy/crazy around here! I spent all day running thither and yon dealing with health care, automotive care, holidays, etc. etc. etc.
Because of the holidays, I’ve been using up stuff at a pretty fair clip. Also, one thing I did buy was another pop crate for the bead collection, This enabled me to move a number of the bead containers into the office where they belong. (Big, toothy grin here. No SPACE BUDGET req’d for the beads, yet.) If I could find one more pop crate, and appropriate jars/boxes, I could probably finish moving all the other beads into the office. We’ll see. The vertical space is there, but there’s no drawer space or other room for them in bookcases or anywhere else at the moment.
This is the promised pic of this year’s holiday package

I’ve managed nearly 9,000 pieces out this year, I’d say that means I can certainly remove the 10,060 I’m aiming for next year, wouldn’t you?
