My workshop actually does quite a bit of traveling....I know weird, huh!?! When I am at home I have a wonderful desk that has been moved about 3 times now. I believe it has finally found a home in the old nursery. I am in the process of converting and making the ENTIRE room mine!!! YEA for me!!

We spend many many (ok almost all of them) weekends in the country and if I want to get any beading done I have to take stuff with me.....well as my DH often says "Do you really need ALL that stuff"? but I do....I often don't know what mood I will be in, do I want to etch, play with clay, resin, do some bead weaving, or what!?!? I usually take way way more than I will ever have time to use in one weekend! This particular weekend I had all kinds of things totally spread out over two dining room tables. I had my choice of things to do, etch, emboss and anneal metal, use some alcohol inks or gilder's paste, bead weave, wire work, etc. I took the end corner and did some wire work. I never even used half of the stuff I hauled out to the country with me that weekend. The big pink bag is the most used, usually I will just take what can fit in the bag, but this weekend I just really felt like I needed as much as I could carry!
|The small corner on the end of the table is where I was actually working!|
|You can see I had lots of ideas and things I wanted to do.....LOL!|
|A few things I finished! Three pairs of earrings, a necklace with enameled hearts and a bracelet.|

Enjoy a few pictures of some of my creations made at home, in the country, and at the bead store :) Please forgive the horrible pictures, I am going to invest in a photo tent very soon.
