Tips and Tea on Tuesdays

On Tips and Tea on Tuesdays, I will cover a topic and hopefully provide you with some tips that will be helpful! And just as an afterthought, tea may occasionally be a cup of Joe!

Today I am sitting with a cup of Earl Grey (cheers to Jean Luc), keeping warm and toasty with my feet clad in my husbands socks, and my comfy, cozy, slippers, hmmm! I got to thinking more about storage. Now that the days are shorter, I find myself spending a few hours a day in my workroom, organizing my smaller components.

Often I store beads, buttons, and embellishments in small plastic bags, or in small jewelry or other types of cardboard boxes. When I am working on a project, and I have a large group of small objects to work with, I want to see what there is to use.

Tip: Use storage containers that are open, like ice cube trays, or a painter’s palette, so that you can compare the components with each other. These are relatively inexpensive, and stack nicely.

Happy tea drinking and stitching to you! ~Christen
