Greetings

New here, and still trying to find my way around the forum.

Shy Russian girl, mostly into beadwork and simple macrame like wrap bracelets. My dreams so far are to organise my bead stash so that I'd have any idea about what kind of beads I have at hand (short-term), to learn some wirewrapping techniques in order to make my own findings (long-term) and to become good enough to quit my day job (very long term and might never happen, but a girl can dream, right?)

Welcome to Craftster!  I think I love organizing my stashes as much as I love making things with them, so I get you about the organizing to see what you have!  I hope you post some of your projects here.  Smiley

If you have any questions, let us know!

I do hope to post some projects once I reach the required message count Smiley

Speaking of which, there don't seem to be any general posting - semi-off-topic area around, and I was wondering if I am missing something.

Agreed, trying to organize the stash is fun. And of course halfway through it I decided that I used a completely wrong way to classify what I have

If you post things now, you can ask a mod to make the pictures pictures for you. Smiley

We have an Off-Topic area for those who are 'Friends of Crafster'.  To become an FOC, you can go here.


And gosh, I'm so glad to hear you say that!  I've done that a time or three myself.  HA!

Thank you

Do they really have an active community there? I just had some rather negative experiences with paid forums, so I'd prefer in advance.

Heh, first I tried to sort my beads by colour and stuff them into boxes, and made a sample reference sheet with the kinds I had available. Then I decided that sorting them by shape and size would make much more sense, since complex patterns rely much more on shape than on colour. One can easily make generally the same thing in different colour, but doing it with different size is much more complicated. Then I figured out that I still can't find my stuff, as of course I have forgotten which of them went to which box Smiley

Ahh.  Yeah, it's active, though I don't know how active you're looking for!  Probably best to wait then?

Oooh I can see how that'd be challenging.  Maybe ask on the Jewelry board for ideas on how to organize?  I'm sure people would love to share their thoughts!
