I finally finished one of the three jewelry holders I have been planning on making. I will hang them in my closet to organize some of my jewelry as well as use for displays at my vendor table at Art & Soul. I plan on making little hooks to hang necklaces and bracelets too. I originally was going to use chicken wire, but the openings were too big for jewelry, so this really worked out better. I do plan on making some more frames with the chicken wire to organize some of my ephemera. One project down...557 more unfinished projects to go. I am trying to organize, finish projects, and clean out some of my stuff.

Now the Big News...A Give Away!
Do you have a Trader Joes near you? You need to see their grocery bags. I love the graphics and color. Clever...offer cute bags, give customers a small discount when they use them for their purchases, and save a tree. So I bought two...one for me and one for the lucky winner of my drawing. I have been going through a lot of the stuff I have been collecting, and I have "too much" stuff. So I am pulling some of my goodies and sending to the winner. Leave a comment and email address and I'll draw a winner in one week. You see two vintage anagrams from my stash...the winner can choose their own letters. So don't forget to leave a post.


Wishing you peace and joy this holiday weekend!

We have no TJ's in Utah. I first went to one in San Jose California and became addicted to their dark chocolate orange sticks. Your Jewelry holder is fabulous.

Hey Lisa,
I have that exact bag, I bought it when I went to Art & Soul in Virginia. You don't have to enter me in the contest but I just wanted to say hi and say I loved your earring hanger!
