My fave project thus far.....

has to be my new jewelry organizer.  I kept all my jewelry in one of those hanging bags with blazay...and it was always hidden.  I needed something that was in my face, daily and I could see what I had.

I scoured the blogs and saw something similar to what I made, but for the life of me I cannot remember the blog or the tutorial, so I cannot link back. Sorry!

I went to my local Goodwill and bought an old picture with a totally FAB frame $8 (it was antique gold, forgot to take before pics).  Then I went to Lowe's Home Improvement and bought some vinyl screen material $5, picture hanging hooks $2 and curtain hooks $2. 

I stripped it apart, and spray painted it black. (Spray paint was leftover from another project)  After it cured, I hot glued the screen material to the back, and nailed a few small nails in the corners to reinforce.

I used the curtain hooks as pegs to hold my necklaces and that tie hanger I bought at WalMart for $4 that holds my rings.

I then hung it in my closet above my "vanity" that I also got at the goodwill, so after I am done with my hair and makeup, I can move on to accessories.  I love how it turned out and how easy it was to make.  Now there is no excuse to not wear my jewelry.

I do have to come up with an idea for all my bangles.  I have a few things in mind but need to jot them down to see if they will work.  Will update at a later time!

I finally finished the two tables.....

that I blogged about here.  I am a procrastinator...but I finally finished the second table this weekend.  It was a lot more work than I anticipated.  I modified the base from the original plans because I want to add some baskets for storage. Check out Anna White's blog, she is fabulous. Her plans are very easy to follow, very thorough.

Better late than never....

I have been neglecting the blog.  We had a busy summer, and I didn't take any pics! Well except for their birthday which I will post later!

These are just some random t-ball shots, followed by the end of the year party and trophy ceremony!  It was cute and they even made sure the girls trophies had girl players on them.
