I know this is not a completed beaded project but I wanted to share my excitement. I found a free box of gaudy ornaments and instantly saw beads. I took the box home full of 20 ornaments, disassembled all the ornaments and ended up with a box full of beads! For Free! *Smiling* I can use all of the materials except the glue gobs. I think you have to be a crafter to see beauty in free gaudy ornaments!
