Bead Hoarders Blog Hop

20 Jul

Let me explain you how it works. It basically goes like that: you see a bead and think “Oh, this would look great in that design I had in mind!”. And then you see another one and think “Oh, I could use this one for that” And 5 minutes later, you say “Well, I will add this one too to my basket. I like it, I will figure out how to use it.”.

All this goes on and on several times during the years and finally you find yourself full with unused (and often forgotten) beads.

If you are lucky enough, you will be invited by Lori to her new Blog Hop: the Bead Hoarders Blog Hop!

I signed up and went through my hoarded stash, found new designs and here is what I made:

    I think it’s great that you got so much made from your hoarded beads and even more ideas for the rest. I’ve gotten quite a few ideas from flipping through this blog hop. Your pieces turned out so wonderfully.
