As I was looking through a box containing an abundance of bead tubes, I came across this bead mix. It's such a nice variety of clear and white cubes, rectangles and e beads, including some with an ab finish, that I was pondering how I could incorporate them all into a fun wintery piece.
Once I dumped them out of the tube, I realized this was not a bead mix I purchased, it was a bead mix that evolved as I worked on various projects. I am not the type of person to put each bead back in its rightful container, although I often wish I was! I have MANY tubes, boxes, bins and miscellaneous containers that hold the remnants of previous work. If I get them into containers of similar colors or types, then I have done a good job of cleaning up my workspace!
I am curious to find out if other beaders take the extra effort to get every bead back in its original container or if they, like me, enjoy the evolutionary process of making bead mixes! Also out of curiosity, I looked up the word "evolutionary" to make sure it was applicable in this particular situation and, I believe it is, what do you think?
"A gradual process in which something changes into a different and usually more complex or better form."
Yes, I'd say that describes this process perfectly! Have a good one!
