The Mess
This is just a small corner of my desk. I am lucky to have a large workspace...but it can cause what we term in our house as "messy build up". I tend to get out a selection of beads to design new pieces and then just never get around to putting back some of the left over beads. So as I am fumbling around on my desk...uninspired by the total disaster, I came up with this little challenge.

Challenge -
I must make some jewelry with items on my desk. I hope to use most of what I have on my desk and then get serious about putting all those little bitty beads away.

So the first one was easy...I always have some of my favorite beads spilled on my desk. Here is what I came up with...

It turned out pretty cute and I have started another one for my future Etsy site.

I challenge you to use what has been stacking up on your desk to create something...be sure and let me know what you come up with.

Now here are some things hanging around in my art room that make me happy. I purchased this adorable piece from Lisa Kaus.I just love the colors and "for Me" just says it all.

This one I purchased from Misty Mawn at Art & Soul in Portland. I am "oh so excited" to take a class from her at ArtFest.

Good timing! I have been doing this with the bits on my desk. Fortunately I have discovered inchies as they use up lots of little bits. Love your Lisa Kaus piece!!!
