Jewelry Organization and What Not

I'm sad to say that my homemade jewelry board has officially seen its last days. Way back (two years ago actually), I created this jewelry board to provide some sort of order to all of my sparkle and stuff.


It was a great place to hang my earrings and necklaces and the first place I went when I walked in the door at night to hang everything on when I changed into my comfy clothes. Two days ago, the hanger broke off and it came crashing to the floor, and almost everything fell off. I'm taking that as a sign to create something new!

Mike and I have separate vanity areas, but neither are very large, so there's not a lot of counter space. The drawers are also pretty small, so the best solution for me is to find a way to use the wall space in the area.  My goal isn't "Wall-O-Jewelry" so I want it to be fairly compact and not cover a huge space. So, I hit up the Internet for some inspiration.

You can check out more ideas on my Pinterest Board too.

What do you use for jewelry storage? Which one do you like best?

  3. I have jewelery storage all over the place. Little bowls in the bathroom, a tree of life stand in the spare room and a wrought iron mannequin in my bedroom, not to mention my actual jewerly box. I like having my stuff visible but it's good to remember that silver oxidizes in the air, so keeping it in a airtight bag is always best.

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'…
