Jewelry Frame

I'm hesitant to post photos of this because it still isn't what I want it to be. I can't hang all of my earrings because a lot of them are either studs, hoops, or the kind that clip together and only the hook style works in this screen so I need to find a solution for that. But I LOVE the way it displays my necklaces and bracelets, I might add more hooks down the sides for more bracelets and really I need about 5 more frames to be able to hang all my necklaces but at least I can hang my favorites! haha
Originally I was gonna buy a frame and paint it but I loved this rustic looking one so I just left it alone.

Book Page Wreath

Project #1 complete! This was so easy! And I think it looks pretty cool. I just need to find a place to hang it now. I got the tutroial from - hers looks better, but what can you expect from an amateur? haha

My SIL Ashley introduced me to some design blogs and I have been spending/wasting A LOT of time on them over the last few days.
I love design and this design blog obsession is getting a little out of control because my list is getting fairly long of all the things i need to buy to do a bunch of these crafts.
Spring = craftiness apparently. Last week before I started reading these blogs i had already painted a mirror frame that i didnt like, painted a picture frame i didnt like and made a jewelry holder because my jewelry collection was a MESS. I could never find anything.
Well Sierra just woke up, but possibly some pictures coming up in the near future if any of these crafts turn out good and are actually easy!

random post, i know.

Speaking of morning hair...



Sierra lost her favorite doll a little while back while we were shopping at Macy's. She is obsessed with this doll and it was quite depressing when after an hour of searching the department store she was nowhere to be found. We decided either the clean up man threw her out or some other child decided to take her home because we seriously searched everywhere in that whole store and made follow-up calls.
There may or may not have been a few tears shed by me on the way home as she cried for dolly.
We searched the internet and even considered making a special trip back to NYC to see if dolly was still being sold at FAO.
Luckily my parents took a vacation to florida and stayed at Vacation Village where they happened upon a doll store that had Dolly! We could hardly believe it.
Sierra hasn't been able to put her down ever since she got her back. Her favroite thing to do with dolly is to hold a piece of her hair and smell it. Strange, i know, but it's pretty much her favorite thing to do.

Please excuse Sierra's ratty morning hair.
