Don't be deceived by the title of this post, it's not about cleaning or organizing your home for spring. I thought I have been busy doing that too, I also have been cleaning out my closets and bead stash.  I thought I would share the grouping of beads that I am using for my next projects called Spring Cleaning. Some Blue and Green beads (my favorites) that I have far to many of. Some Pink,White and Purple..some from a necklace that took apart a year ago. Stay tuned to see what I create with my Spring Cleaning finds! Enjoy!
