78 Cent Jewelry Organizer!

HEY ALL! I'm linking up with Jennifer Juniper over at HOPE STUDIOS for her TUTORIAL TUESDAY!

Usually I am busy checking out what all the crafty peeps over there each week are making but never creative enough to join the party..
I made my OWN CRAFTY PHENOMENON this week!

I have been GOING BATS on Sunday mornings-not just because I have 7 kids to get ready for church but also LOOKING FOR JEWELRY! It's always all tangled up and mangled up so I have be wracking/racking ( says both versions are right.) my brain to find something to declutter this mess.

My post partum brain CLICKED IN today and I did the below project in literally 10 minutes..

I had some old burlap, an old frame and I called THE CAPTAIN while he was at Wally World and said "hey pick me up some type of little hooks." He came home with red ones-2 packs of 5 for 39 cents each .

I took the glass out of the old frame, cut the burlap the size of the cheap cardboard backing inside the frame and covered it.  Put it back in the frame and pushed those little tabs down to hold it in place.

Measured the frame, marked it accordingly with a pencil, drilled 10 tiny pilot holes.

Then I let my 2 four year olds screw those puppies in RED AND ALL, didn't even spray paint them black (like I normally to EVERYTHING) since my bedroom is red!


It took me all of 2 minutes to hang up the earrings..

 And all of 2 minutes to hang up the necklaces & bracelets!

For 78 cents and 10 minutes work

What do you think???

Hi, I wanted to share with you that earlier this year I sent the link to your blog to a friend of mine from way back when in highschool who had been trying to conceive for a long time. She just got back her postitive pregnancy test after implantation with her adopted embryos and I could not be more thrilled or teary-eyed for her! So, thank you for sharing your heart and your path on your blog.
(And you don't need to post this...)
