Craft Notes





This weekend's project is a bit different and experimental for me.     I'll preface this by saying, I'm not much of a jewelry girl.    I have stuff I wear, but it quite nicely fits in my (not so huge) jewelry box, and I can't say I own anything of any real and impressive value.    Not to mention, I can easily go months without changing my earrings, and nine times of ten, I wear my favorite triskele necklace to work.

That being said, I'm a little sick of my current earring situation, which is one section of the top of my jewelry box.    They fit easily enough, but I have days where I spend an inordinate amount of time digging for earring #2.    With that in mind, I bought a picture frame, and some aida cloth (built in holes!), and I've done my best to glue in the aida cloth as tightly as possible, with a little bit of additional wooden support around the edges.    I have no idea if this will work, but if it does, I'll be able to keep my earrings, organized by pair, where I can more easily see them.

Project #2 is something to put my pins on.    These are mostly novelty pins that I've had stacked up in my jewelry box drawer (the ones I actually wear with any frequency will be staying there).   I have a few I have fond memories of (the IT person in chains from college, etc), and it occurred to me that I should have those out where I can see them.    So that's just a leftover quilt block, glued to a board backing, which I will slightly stuff.    Again, hopefully it'll work out.

I also have some ideas for something to put my most used necklaces on, but that involves paint, so it's further down on my list for the moment.
