I get overly excited whenever I see beads. No matter what they look like or what their material or prize is, beads are beads, and they are lovely. I actually feel a little jealous of people who can make beaded jewelry or accessories. I’ve tried making one but I failed. They are not as good as what others make. Maybe I lack some material… I don’t know. However, I still collect beads not as much as other people though. I don’t use them to make beaded jewelry but other things. I usually use them as accessories when I wrap gifts.
I am very particular about my art and craft material especially their containers. That’s why I have specific containers and places for them. Their first containers were actually small bottles, but they were heavy and took a lot of space. That’s why I changed them into plastic boxes with dividers.
I even try to arrange them by colors or by kind depending on my mood. ^^ They are really good to look at when they are arranged by color. If someday I have a large place, I can acquire more beads. They are such wonderful things, aren’t they? >.< I don’t have very good glass beads though because they are quite expensive. So I just opt for cheaper ones like plastic and wooden beads. But it will really be great if I can expand my collection and have more beads. It will be heaven… ^__^
The beads above are actually beads I bought when I was in high school. I no longer remember how I used them. Maybe I used them for my projects in school. I don’t know, but they are still with me. >.< Even though I am often teased by brother for collecting beads without even using them (I actually use them but not a lot), I will still collect beads!!! Beads are great, and I love them.
