Reorganizing (again) and new beads

I am reorganizing my room. Got the computer set up on a smaller table (because the computer takes up so much space, I can't use the table for anything else anyway).

On the other wall: a used cabinet from a printer - Max snagged this several years ago and wanted to use it for his tools in his workshop. But for some strange reason, never did. This spring, he fixed it up and now it is in my room (it just barely fit through the door with 0,5 mm to spare). I have my paper and ephemera and pencils and art stuff in there and on the top I do my art work and my packaging.




I was at a bead show today. Found some treasures, but the light was already fading when I got home, so these pictures are not the best.



I can't wait to start using these! Lots of yummy stuff to get the creative juices flowing...
And yes, I do have a penchant for green!

Damn it! I've missed some really good posts by you. My blog list wasn't showing updates from your blog! But now I've caught up and I love seeing other people's studios. You've got a great space! And the recent flea market pictures ... do I have to go to Germany to find a flea market like that?!!! Nice visiting you again.
