Patience Boosters For Beaders and Crafters

Patience Boosters

Many beaders love to bead, but lack the time, focus or motivation. They get too busy. They work on several projects at once. They end up with a lot of unfinished projects. Often achieving success gets too frustrating. Paralyzing. There are too many competing demands.

Beading and craft projects can take a long time. You have to maintain your interest over this extended period.

Most of us are like this. So I wanted to know what kinds of things do you do to increase your patience. How do you construct and manage the situations you are in — with all these competing demands for your time and energy — so that you can bead?

Are there some strategic short-cuts you take, when beading or designing, so you can speed things up?

What are your Patience Boosters?

“When I'm working my "day" job, I have a 3 X 5 note pad I carry with me and use it to write or draw ideas until I can get back to the beads.
When I get home I fix supper and bead until bed time.  Then on Saturday I pick any projects that I want to get finished and do completion work then.
I find that projects in the "Lost interest category" never get finished and every so often I cut them up and reclaim the beads.”
Marilyn Earhart, Florida

Patience boosters, indeed.
