How to Build a Portable Bead Studio

Bead Fest Texas kicks off tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited! There's just something so comforting about being around "my people"-you know, people who fully understand and accept you for being obsessed with beads. People who can drop hundreds of dollars at the show and only have a tiny bag to show for it. People who stay up all night beading. People who can name the exact issue a project was published. People who save all of their vacation time and money for classes. You get the idea!

I told myself I'd start packing early this trip to avoid the last-minute rush. Luckily, my "portable bead studio" is always ready to go. Believe it or not, airplanes are near the top of my favorite-places-to-bead list. Why? Because the lighting is great, and I'm forced to just sit in one place for a stretch of time without the distraction of laundry, TV, dinner, etc.

Ready for tips on how to pack up your own supplies? Be sure to watch my quick-and-fun video, How to Build a Portable Bead Studio. I include a great thread-cutting alternative to carrying scissors through security lines-but you'll have to watch the video to find out!

What do you pack when beading on the go?

Have fun and hope to see you at Bead Fest Texas!
