At first I simply packed several selections of wire, my pliers, and a single divided box of miscellaneous beads. However, I soon realized that the idea of even sorting though that single organizer felt cumbersome. While I still have that organizer packed (along with a few small seed bead containers), the notion of pre-packing some bead selections hit me. I liked it.
|I hate pictures of beads in baggies too, but there was just no other way to get a picture of these. I apologize|
I absolutely have not had time this week to be creative, though my body has been yearning for it. Yet, sorting through my beads and coming up with these color palettes healed that feeling some.
|This picture is a little better, right?|
Picking out the beads was almost meditative and slightly addictive. I know that these fourteen baggies of beads are way more than I need for a BUSY four day trip, but it makes me feel better to know I have options.
|And I KNOW this one is better.|
Oh, and I did add some waxed linen cord and buttons to my craft bag as well. . .you know, just for good measure.
What's your method for making sure you can get your craft/bead fix while away from home?
