So the last time I was home I was helping my organized obsessed best friend (and when I say best friend I don't mean the kind that come and go from your life, I mean a 20 year friendship that keeps getting stronger every day of every moment) Now that we got that cleared up...She was organizing her MASSIVE collection of accessories such as bracelets, earrings, necklaces etc. She had no where to put her earrings so that they weren't just sitting on her shelf soooo...
I thought for a second and then WHAM....I asked her if she still had the old square frames she had on kijiji...she said yes, I went running looking for them then told her...I'll be back have to go to the dollar store...
I can back with a rubber placemat type thing that had holes in it (similar to those under the rug grippers or in between plate things so they don't slip) and some velcro...then started ripping apart the frames and took out the glass, grabbed the scissors, measured and cut the placemat to the size of the glass I took out...then...put the frame back together using the placemat instead of the glass. The I added the velcro dots to each corner of the frame...stuck the other side of the velcro to the side of her jewellery armoire and this is what it looks like!
Of course this is not ALL of her earrings I took the picture before she finished but...now her earrings all have a place and do not take up space on her shelf! YAY ME all for $2.00
I just wanted to share with you the excitement we had trick or treating yesterday...although I would have better pictures but forgot to take my memory card for my camera...so when I got into the house to load them I thought...uhoh as I seen the card already sticking out of my drive slot. So here's the meezly little pictures I got..
The Funny Halloween story:
Cohen was suppose to be the Dumbo Elephant in one of the photos...only my husband took him out to one of our favorite thrift stores and showed him the monkey suit in the other photo...once he seen it he wanted to put it on...and there it stayed. My husband tried to take it off him and he flung himself on the floor taking a fit, so out the store they went wearing the costume and he stayed in it for days on end. So through my efforts to make him an elephant I needed to get at least one photo of him in it.
Cohen the scary Elephant and Lydia "aka Emily"
Moma made her costume out of cotton and flannel. If you are interested in a tutorial on how to comment below and I will set one up!
This photo was taken last year well after Halloween
