Jewelry Organization

See the rack with the door knobs?
That is what I use to hang my necklaces
on but I had so many necklaces that they
were all getting messed up and wrapped
together. Sometimes it became a struggle
just to grab something to wear that day…

Back in October I had a booth in
a local Octoberfest. To display jewelry
that I made, I fixed up this frame to
display everything on.

Using a 16×20 frame, some screen
and some old fashion curtain hooks I
made this….

It is now hanging behind my
bedroom door to help keep my
jewelry hanging nice and neat.

Hopefully this will make grabbing a necklace
to wear a bit easier.

While watching TV this evening after a long
day helping my Mom with a yard sale, I made
these for my friend Debbie.

She had seen some just like this that
I did for Octoberfest but in a different
color. I actually found some more candle
holders just like the others at Goodwill…
99 cents each.

Debbie gave me some beads that she was
interested in having on the holders…

Here is the finsihed project.

thank you for stopping in,

True Story Tuesday – No Blood Left

Posted in Uncategorized on April 6, 2010 by pjack214

When my son was little, about 5 or
so, I had been to the doctor to have
allergy testing done. With that I
had holes all up and down my back….

Later that week I had given blood to
the Red Cross through work.

When I picked up my son at Day Care
after giving blood, he wanted to know
why my arm had a bandage on it. I
laughed and told him I had given
blood but with all the holes in my
back I bet if I was to drink water it
would all leak out from all my holes.

Cory looked at me really thoughtful
for a minute then he got a really
concerned look on his face and he
said “don’t do that anymore”….I had
to ask don’t do what anymore and he
said give my blood away cause I was
going to give it all away and I would
not have anymore left.

Out of the mouths of loving babes!

Jump on over to True Story Tuesday at and enjoy more stories.

Cory all grown up

Its free therpy day over at Kmama at The Daily Dribbles.
So everyone jump on in and leave a post for
what you are Thankful (LOL) for!
Ooppsss, I just looked at Daily Dribbles and it looks
like there is no Thank you very much post as of yet.
Check back later.

Thank you very much for the idiot
that just would not move over into
that cleared lane so that I could
merge onto the parkway! Don’t you
people get it, if you can move it over
and get the heck out of the way then do it!

Thank you very much for the sleepless
night I had on Tuesday night. Oh my
gosh, how does a full moon mess with
you so bad when you are trying to
sleep? One strange dream after
another (that made no sense that
I can remember), the cold/hot
moments that kept taking turns
with both me and the dog! Cover
on, cover off, dog under cover, dog out!
What a night….

Thank you very much for the baby
birds I heard chirping in the attic
from the computer room.

Thank you very much for the little
piss ants that come every year into
the house at spring time just to piss me off!

Thank you very much for the
wood/carpenter bees that come
and drill holes under my shed
every spring…..I am sure you are
already out there I just have not
taken the time to go and look. But
let me just say, you are a pain in
my backside for deciding that you
have to do this at the front entrance
of the shed and not the back so I
can’t get in and out.

I am beginning to wonder if Nature
has it out for me this spring!

Thank you very much for yet another
sleepless night!

Thank you for the SUNSHINE…and that
one is a true, heartfelt, honesty to goodness

One last true, honest thank you goes
to the fact that Thursday (today) is the
last work day of the week…..that
deserves a REAL thank you also…..
