(I snagged this picture of the box from Tracey's blog, I'll get some of my own pics of this beauty up soon!)
It's only been with me a day but I have been taking my time going through every nook and cranny, every baggy and box and enjoying reading the journal and the entries from all the sisters before me.
I have a HUGE stash of baggies full of really pretty artisan beads (including a ton of my own lampwork) as well as strands of beads and clasps and wire and what nots that I've decided to put in before I send it on it's way. I'm still taking my time and really thinking about each piece I may take out to keep. There's just so much! It's a bit overwhelming in a really blissful way.
