Colorful Hearts - Can you feel the love?

While visiting a fellow beader recently, I was admiring her giant, clear rubbermaid container full of completely organized clear bead containers. She took off the lid and revealed the beautifully arranged containers of beads. Not only were the beads perfectly organized in their containers, there was a slip of paper in each section describing the beads and where they were purchased. Some were from Ebay, local craft shops, well known online bead distributors, etc.

Can you still feel the love? :)

I know... I felt a little bit of envy and was so glad that I emptied a large bead container with a nice handle and filled it with perfectly arranged beads in preparation for the beading visit. For a moment, I was an organized beader. Within an hour, I had just about everything I brought all over her kitchen counter. When it was time to leave, in true to myself fashion, I put the bead container under the counter rim and began scooping beads into slots in no particular order.

Sigh.....Good thing I have a good sense of humor and self acceptance at this point in life!!

While my friend was going through her containers and pointing out various beads, she noticed she had sections full of glass heart beads in many colors. She picked a bunch of them out and put them in my hand. I honestly thought it would be great to have the aqua hearts, but she kept adding more of them. They are just so cute. I wouldn't have thought about grouping all these different colors, but somehow they make a cool statement. Harmonious diversity!!

I hope you are all having a great week!
