I’ve talked about the yarn stash a couple of times. But it is not the only stash I have. With all the Jewelry and Markers that I make I have over the years amassed quite the pile of beads.
Beads and charms and crafty things.
I tend to grab a few of a lot of things wandering the bead district and then work from there. Sometimes I have ideas, and will grab a couple things online, but roaming the bead shops, is always fun inspiring and stash enhancing. Sounds a lot like visiting the yarn stores.
Sometimes coming up with a new design is just laying things out, and seeing what comes to mind. Which may be something interesting or nothing at all. This pile below, was a nothing at all.
Or a pile, turns into charms for all the seven years at a very magical school.
You have, Owls and castles, Diaries stones, padfoot, and moony. That set is still in progress but you get the idea.
