{ It's the Little Things }

Or While Hubby's away part two...
I did a lot of little thing that added up to a lot. here are a couple of little projects that I finally got around to completing.
First, I saw a similar jewelry holder in a store, and while I loved it, I wasn't about to fork over $150 for it. I'm just too cheap, and I knew I could make something just like it. I was at Hobby Lobby one day, and they had their frames on sale for 1/2 off. A yard of fabric, some batting and a foam core board completed my supplies. What do you think? I love being able to see all (or at least most) of my necklaces and bracelet at a glance.
My second project I totally stole from Sheri. When I was at her house painting her cabinets, I notice the cute chalkboard she made for her pantry cupboard. Great for shopping lists and reminder notes. All it took was a thin sheet of fiberboard, a little trim and a quart of chalkboard paint. Thanks Sheri for letting me copy, I love it!
One more post to go for the weekend projects. As a heads up (and as my sisters know) I'm naming the post {I. Hate. To. Sew.}, Stay tuned.
