Art Time: Jewelry Board

One of the things I love about my son is that he loves arts and crafts as much as me! So, we've starting having "art time", which allows me to work on some fun things while he's cutting, gluing, drawing and making a big old fun mess!

We had art time Saturday morning and I was able to finish a jewelry board I'd been working on, inspired by a post I saw online. The original post I saw used a corkboard, but I took a piece of styrofoam and created a similar look by covering it with a piece of fabric. Then I decorated it with ribbon and rick-rack (which is great for hanging earrings on) and inserted some picture hooks and it was done!

Obviously, I have a thing for chunky necklaces, so I'm glad they are no longer all tied up in a big wad of mess in my drawer. Do you think I should sell these in my Etsy shop too? I'm definitely going to be making some for Christmas gifts!

  4. So much fun! And I love that your son helped you--the best :)!

    I made my own (less cute) version of a jewelry board several months ago. Here are a few shots:

    I'll have to figure out a way to make mine more presentable! Right now it's more an issue of function, rather than fashion. Bite my tongue, right?!?

    Thanks for sharing :)

  9. Looks great! My sister & I made another version of this using a framed mirror and window screen. I'll be posting it on my blog later this week. And I would definitely try this on Etsy, I'm going to make some more for my shop with some old frames I found!

  11. YES! Sell these in your Etsy shop, because I desperately want one and wouldn't be able to make one myself!

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
