Moving right along

The move into the new bead haus is going about as smoothly as I had expected. It poured down rain most of the last weekend which made it even more of a challenge. But all in all, I got a lot of work done.

The wall of shelving

The first thing I needed to do was a thorough cleaning. Dusting, vacuuming, sweeping and scrubbing from top to bottom

Window corner

J.P. put these lovely shelves up at the last minute.

Look at all that shelf space!

Then the actual moving in started.
I love the shelving J.P. installed. My beads all have a spot and I can see what I have more easily.

By Sunday afternoon my collection had a new home.

That wall filled up pretty fast!
The rest of my collection of crafts supplies will go into the rolling drawer units. I have room for a total of five, hopefully that's enough room.

I have been having a fairly easy time purging stuff as I go along, but I could probably do better. At this point I just want to get it all in the haus so I can see what I have, then start going through stuff and rearrange. Hopefully that is when I can do a little more throwing out. Oh, why am I such a pack rat?  

Small shelves for mugs of seed beads.

A little alter for little things.

Working on a building

It's been a long time coming but my little bead haus is almost ready to move into. J.P. is installing the heater this weekend and putting the finishing touches on the shelving. In the mean time I'm boxing up beads and getting ready to do a major reorganizing of my beads and craft supplies.
