Finally...it's baaaaaaaack...Monday Made It with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics.
I'm happy, happy, happy!
Thank you, Tara!
I have to warn you though...this is not school related...sorry!
So...I heart Pinterest.
I want to make EVERYTHING I see on there.
About a year ago, I made a pinspired earring holder that I saw on Pinterest
and at a friend's house.
I needed some major organization for my my bling.
I love it so much and it was easy to make with some screen and
a picture frame that I found on clearance at T.J. Maxx.
This definitely keeps my earrings organized...
if I actually put them away like I'm supposed to.
I already had a jewelry tree for my necklaces
that Jerm ordered off of Costco for me a few years ago.
There is a cute little space for rings, but there is a problem...
I have too MANY rings for this space and there is just too much goin' on here
with the necklaces and bracelets.
I've had to add more little trays to store stuff.
So, I went out and bought one of these.
This works okay, but if I want to see the rings on the back,
I have to take it down from where
it is hangin' and flip it around.
Then...sometimes rings fall out of the pouches.
I needed somewhere else to store my rings and to be able to see them immediately
without them fallin' all over the place.
I was standin' in Walmart waitin' for my Nitty to pick out yarn, and
it jumped out at me....this wooden rack thing with little sticks standin' up straight.
If you sew...you know what it is.
For me...I had no clue, but I thought it looked cool and might work for me.
Enter the Thread Rack...the place where you stick spools of thread.
Those of you that know me...know this will never happen.
Instead, I'm goin' to store my finger jewels here.
The bigger the ring...the better.
I like bling rings.
(Jerm contributed to my "made it" by paintin' it black for me)
I made it a ring holder by addin' my rings.
Woo hoo...I'm back in business!
There are 60 spots and they aren't all full...you know what that means...
I need to go shoppin'!
This makes me even happier, happier, happier.
I seriously thought I was pure GENIUS for thinkin' of this...
I went to Pinterest and found that someone had already made one before me.
Out of all of my Pinterest browsin'...how had I never stumbled on it before?
Maybe next time I'll invent somethin' phenomenal that nobody else has thought of before.
You could always follow me on Pinterest...
just in case that genuis moment happens...
I'm sure you wouldn't want to miss it.
I also made somethin' to use with my rockstars to continue our practice of multiplyin' decimals.
Check out how I use these in my classroom here.
