Plaid plaid plaid. And crafts.

Even though I only work part time, every day off feels like I hit the jackpot. And what would I do to de-stress other then do some arts and crafts? I mean, let's get real. So although it took a few trips to surrounding stores, I managed to find the perfect piece of wood at home depot (it was 45 cents, so I say winning!), a few nails, and string, and I was able to make my very own, handy-dandy jewelry organizer. So rather then having all of my jewelry all over the bathroom counter in a tangled pile, it's pretty. I'm also thinking of buying some vases or glass bottles to organize my bracelets on. But all in good time. Do you guys have any special ways to organize your jewelry? I looked on pinterest a good deal to get ideas, and although I'm digging the whole antler-organizer thing, I think it'll take some hunting (no pun intended) through antique stores to find them.

Side note: with moving, working, and applying to a new school, I apologize for my lack of blogging. But I do miss it and think of it often. And shall not give up. So have patience with my monthly posts.


p.s. the shopping has not ceased. enjoy.


  1. Plaid......um yeah.....Texas has rubbed off on you.... in the best sense of course...

    I feel such a sense of wilderness...open plains.....native-ness....earthy.....strength....character....

    Love Love Kisses and Hugs...

    1. Oh dear, I hope Texas isn't rubbing off too much. Though an occasional "ya'll" then and again has been slipping out lately. Help.

  10. Darling,

    you're adorable. Also, I've been missing you like the dickens. Also, it's 2:11 A.M and I just drank coffee. Ehm.

    Your way too artsy-crafty for my poor little un-craftful soul, but I shall admire from afar (literally). That jewelry organizer is gorgeous and seriously professional. I love it. And that plaid shirt makes me want to pinch your cheeks. You're a babe, dear girl.

    I miss you, I miss you.

  11. these crafts are AMAZING. i love that jewelry hanger!!
