Ok, I'll begin with a short explination.

My aunt owns a small craft store, and when she brings in new inventory she gets rid of some of her older things. This means I get them. Which in turn means I have boxes, and boxes full of beads. I kid you not. Well, at first it was fun! So many beads...so many ideas....so many unfinished bracelets, necklaces, anklets la de da the list goes on. Now I just feel overwhemled and down  Undecided

So I was hoping some of you might be able to share some ideas with me!

What are your favorite things to do with beads?

I swear I will not steal your ideas and make millions off of them, Girls Scouts honor. I just need a little something to get me back into the spirit of crafting. Right now everything I make is so dull and mediocre, but I feel as though some of the newer, more exciting ideas I have are just to out there to be made into legit items. Please, tell me I'm wrong! Share your crazy ideas!

Try www.beadingdaily.com.
I also browse the craft section at the library or a bookstore, or go to Barnes & Noble, get a cup of coffee and flip through all the bead magazines when I need inspiration. Start a sketchbook to keep ideas of future projects in. I usually get a bunch of ideas at once, and by the time I get done with 1 I've forgotten what the others were.

If you have tons of small seed beads and some wire, you could make french beaded flowers!
