::Holly, step away from the caffeine and chocolate. It's really not the wonder combination you seem to think it is!::

Oh, uhm, well, sorry. I tend to get a bit "Jackson Pollack crazy" (stolen from Brene Brown, on a TED talk about Vulnerability) when I'm working on a deadline, or focusing with a specific goal in mind. And in this case, my focus is first on the craft fair on Saturday. Then the earring swap organized by the wonderful Diana of Suburban Girl Studio. Then the Very Vintage Challenge organized by awesome Michelle Mach. And then four more craft fairs throughout the fall. So yes, "Jackson Pollack crazy" it is indeed! And this is of course, not including the normal chaos of two young children, a husband, and an almost full-time job.
You'll notice that cleaning house is not included in that list of chaos. That's because I haven't picked up anything in over a week. Well, sure, laundry is done, kitchen is clean, kitty litter boxes emptied. But that's about it. Oh, and I forgot to mention that we're having company for dinner tomorrow night. Oh. Lovely. Excuse me while I find more chocolate and caffeine.

There, that's better :) And now on to the lovely beady goodness that's dressing my bead table! As I mentioned, I'm prepping for the fair on Saturday. So I've got a number of finished pieces that I haven't yet added to the "price and tag" station...
|Amethyst and sterling silver bracelet|
|Vintage glass and copper bracelet|
|Czech glass and copper with handmade sterling silver earwires|
I've also got my recent buy from PickyourPlum on the bead table...these lovely bezels came in yesterday, and I can't wait to experiment with them!
|brass, pewter and copper bezels|
And then there's this:
Granted, this isn't a great photo...but like my partner in crime for this craft fair, I'm busy renovating my own displays. And I think we're sharing a brain or something, because this is a similar project to what she posted for Bead Table Wednesday! But you'll have to wait to see the finished project ;)
What you also don't see is the complete disarray my bead table really is! Beads have run amok, tools are thrown everywhere, bits and pieces of wire and metal are strewn all about...it's really a disaster area. And then there is my bucket of displays and table coverings and other craft show stuff...it's really quite disturbing. I do think my husband is quite despairing of my organizational skills. Which I never claimed to in the first place ;) After all,
So, there's my bead table this lovely Wednesday! What's on yours? And don't forget to check out the Flickr group for more loveliness!
