Bead Hoarder's Blog Hop Reveal!

Welcome to the first annual Bead Hoarder's Blog Hop reveal, where we all dig into our stash and get to work making something from some of those gorgeous things we've been hoarding away.

And I can reveal ... that I can't find the blinkin' piece that I've been working on. Someone has TIDIED UP! (Never a good thing at our place).

So instead, here is a nice calming picture of Stone Henge I half-inched from the Daily Mail website while I grumble n cuss n sulk.


Many thanks to Lori Anderson for organising this blog hop despite having a whole bunch of crappiness thrown at her. And many apologies from the cleaning fairies for putting my stuff in a 'safe' place.

Please be sure to hop over to the other participents blogs to see if the cleaning fairies have been behaving themselves elsewhere!

  1. I am sure it was a beautiful piece! And I apologize because I have banned the cleaning fairies from anything related to beading in my home, so they must have come to yours!

  2. You have to be careful with fairies; they covet sparklies and think nothing of claiming treasure. They don't mean to be bad, it's just their nature.

  3. Hope you find it!!! I am sure it was a great design, can't wait to see it, I'm sure it will turn up!! I think the cleaning fairies have condemned my home and now the gremlins come in and play at night!!! LOL Have a Blessed day!!!

  4. Happens to me all the time! My jump rings and beading wire for my piece went to their safe place too! Everything is guaranteed to turn up when you stop lookingor don't need it any more :)

  5. Your post cracks me up. I'd be so happy if someone else in my house would clean up . . .
    When the bead gremlins release your piece please post it :-)

  6. Don't ya just HATE it when you put something somewhere to "keep it safe" then can't remember where you put it! ARGHHH. Hubbie is always after me to "organize" my studio. I don't dare. I would never find anything again!!!!

  7. The nerve of people to "clean up" lol

  8. Ha Ha Ha...I'm always losing things that I've started working on. Makes me CRAZY!! Hope you find it.

  9. LOL - the cleaning fairies took one look at the mess I create in and ran away screaming! :)

  10. Oh I hope your piece turns up! And isn't that funny about us both being at the Quirky Birds workshop? Small world indeed!

  11. Oh you have given me a right good Chuckle! Awww well you know that happens to all of us! Those darn elves have taken 2 strands of expensive coral beads from me and hidden them too! LOL. Maybe we should leave them more chocolate! Big hugs ox

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope your piece turns up!

  13. It's always the same with putting something in a "safe place" isn't it? hope it turns up soon :)

  14. I've decided that there is no 'safe place' for me to put things when I tidy up...maybe I should stop tidying things up & just keep working in my workshop - lol! :)

  15. You are so funny, I hate it when things get "cleaned up), I can never find anything!

  16. oh poo! I hope you find it.

  17. This made me laugh!
    Did you find it? :-)

    1. Gah NO! That's why I've started operation WIG (Where's It Gone). We need a major tidy-up here!

  18. Thank you for a much needed giggle...**blankity-blank those clean up fairies...I hope it turned up


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment :-)
