One of the things that I have started doing this month besides finishing my Christmas shopping is to spring clean my supplies cupboard. (Yes, I have loads of beads, charms etc.) I am a hoarder when it comes to crafts supplies.
I started drawer by drawer, repacking my jewelry supplies, segregated the beads, crystals, charms and findings into ziplock bags. I broke them up into different materials too e.g. brass, silver plated, sterling etc. I kept all the price tags so that I know how much each one costs. The best thing about spring cleaning is that you will "discover" or "uncover" treasures that you have stored away, forgotten until now. I actually found some charms that I have bought some time back and have yet to use them in my jewelry pieces!
It is definitely a long overdue exercise as I often get "bugged" by Mr B to clean up my "creative mess". Interestingly, I found spring cleaning quite therapeutic! Not sure why it took me so long to get around to doing it. :)
It took me 3 days but I am almost done with the jewelry supplies and will look to move on to packaging supplies (And Yes I have another cupboard for that.) in the coming days.
Till tomorrow... now what I need is a nice long bath..
