quickie craft

I'm a fan of making things in a jiffy.  I get antsy sitting in one spot hunched over a project.  T'was last week that I sat quasimoto-style for 20 long minutes untangling 3 different necklaces.  Suuuch a drag.  It was about that long that I realized my long dangly necklaces needed some separation.  So, I dug into my things and thought up something to do.. I've seen very similar things done everywhere but I thought I'd share what I decided to do with mine.  I bought this adorable frame last summer that will probably eventually be put to better use (it used to be a prop for shoots when frames in pictures were all the rage..  not my style anymore)  So I found these thingys...

and bent them out of shape with two pairs of pliers.

I screwed them in manually (get gloves or use the pliers because the wood in my frame was tough to puncture).

And well, there you go.  I just lean it on my dresser and I rather like it.  Nothing huge.  Just another excuse to take bright colorful pictures.  And that's about it from me.

Sianara suckers! (ugh.. Too much Simpson's in my household growing up. lol)

Ha ha wasn't it like...two weeks ago that frames in pictures was in style? Or doesn't every female mormon photographer in the world still do it? Never understood it. But I think you're great. I would honestly recommend you to anyone.

And your necklace frame looks adorable. Is that wall paper behind it?

Thank you guys for the love (: And no, not wall paper, just paper! But I thought it was bright and fun to add behind.

Very cute! I've been working on my jewelry mess for quite a while and I think I've almost got it done. I'm just waiting on my dear hubby to finish a few things (I'm not as handy as you are). Maybe when he's actually home for more then five minutes he'll get a chance.

Let me know if you have any questions with Bridge. Seriously! I know I'm not the best explainer, in fact, I think I might be the worst.

So cute! And those little baby girl pictures that you took on your photo blog, AMAZING! They could not be any cuter! I got my old suitcases at the star mill in salt lake. Its a SUPER AMAZING antique store, if you are ever up there you have to go. (Its in American Fork) :)
