So I went into the craft armoire, and lo and behold, I appeared to own not a single bead. Or wire. Or compartment boxes in which to store said paraphenalia.
"I don't have them, Mum, I swear." "Oh yeah? You check the cabinet then!"
(After an extensive search) "Okay, maybe I have them. I'll go check my room." "If you find Amelia Earhart while you're in there, let me know."
"Erm, found your beads...sorry."
Me: "Meh. Wanna help me make fairy charms for the garden? Cut some lengths of galvanized wire 24" long..."
Happy Mother's Day to you and your creations.
