organize necklaces, check!

My necklaces were a mess. A huge, gigantic mess. I never wore them because they were annoying to look through. I searched Google for images, browsed Pinterest and numerous blogs for ideas, and searched thrift stores for something to "upcycle"into a necklace rack. Nothing pleased me.

I had a few of these shelves lying around, (picked them up at Target on clearance) and figured it was the best I could work with.  

Here is a quick little "photo tutorial" on how I turned the shelf into a necklace rack.

Done! Glad I can check that off my to-do list.

Hope you got to have at least one green beer on St. Patty's Day!

Super Easy Bags

I'm trying to kill my fabric stash.

Well at least trim it down to fabric I really want to use. This "cinch bag" tutorial  popped up on Pinterest and it looked to be fairly simple and quick to make. I could have put some extra effort out and added a zipper and maybe some interior pockets, but 'eh didn't feel like it. The bag is fairly deep (mine varied in size depending on what fabric I had in my stash) and you could always cinch it up more to keep stuff in.

Here are the two bags I made using this tutorial (mostly). 

Also, yay for discovering new ways to edit photos in Picasa. Fun!
