did with some of the beads.
I have to nominate myself as Freak of the Week. I just got in a shipment of 25 pounds of glass beads, mixed colors, sizes and styles. You can imagine how many beads are in 25 pounds. Well, I turned on the Tivo, got a lot of small boxes, and sorted every single one of those beads.
If that wasn't obsessive enough, I then washed, with a sieve, each of the boxes I had sorted. After I dried them, I put them in clear zip top bags and stored them in my library card file (I purchased them when our library went computerized) by color, and of course the drawers are labeled with a Brother P-touch labeler.
Yes, excessive; yes, over the top; yes, even a bit freaky; but I can find just what I want in seconds! Here's a photo that shows what I did with some of the beads.
