First of all. This is a bit of a ridiculous thing to post, kind of like how to make toast or something. But I am posting it anyway.
Also, my Facebook status this morning had to do with my current and utter lack of motivation. Let me make it clear that I bought the supplies for this idea weeks ago and just completed it today, despite the fact that it took MAYBE all of ten minutes.
But I digress. I’d been coveting something like this for a while, a way to display jewelry on the wall. Too pricy, for sure, but I like the idea of seeing what I have so that I might actually wear it. My original idea was to get one of those old wooden thread spool holders at Goodwill but of course, when I want to find something, I can’t. On to Plan B.
Cup holders! Those little hooks you can just screw into the wall! I bought several in different sizes, and actually planned to tie a ribbon across two of them for earrings, but then I found two lovely little wooden bowls while searching for the spool holder.
In other brilliance, I’ve got several necklaces made by friends that bear mentioning. There are two in the bottom row with all sorts of lovely beads and rbbons were given to me by Jeanne, who has an Etsy shop where she sells her work.
And the one next to it was made by Sue, out of Scrabble tiles, and the best part, shrunken photos that I’d posted on Facebook! How brilliant is that!
And now I get to see my pretties every day!
But that’s enough progress for one day. I’ll be lucky to finish making the chili I started.
