Hello, there! I am Sarah, the newest Mango in the bunch. I’ve been deemed as the token BEADER of the crew, and am using my first blog post to share my best-kept secret. (I guess it isn’t a big secret, any more…)
One of my favorite things about beading is that you can do it almost anywhere! I guess it depends on how big your beads are, and what project you are working on…but I have finagled an awesome portable-workspace that I can take almost anywhere with me. So, even if I only have 5 minutes to work on something, I can pull it out of my purse and get a little work done. Whether you’re waiting to board an airplane, sitting at the doctor’s office, or riding the bus to work, you can bead any time!
I have converted an old cigar box of my dad’s into my mobile-studio, and get comments on it everywhere I go. All I did was take a cigar box that my dad was getting rid of, cut a piece of beading-mat to fit, and away I go! It fits my tiny scissors, needles, thread, bead-scoop, and “Thread Heaven”, plus whatever project I am working on (currently some jewelry components using Czech glass spear beads from Happy Mango Beads), all in a compact space that I can fit on my lap, wherever I may be.
Do you have a portable solution for YOUR beading-needs? Please share!
