I”m going to preface this with I’m not good with crafts. I mostly think this was a necessity, not a craft project. But if you want to think me a marvel at crafts, I won’t complain. It started because I had found my necklaces were tangling up and I couldn’t find a pair of earrings to save my life. Believe me, wearing the same earrings for two weeks because you can’t find another pair gets old. . . real fast.
So, off to the good old Target I went and ambled down the back-to-school aisle. I really didn’t know how this was going to work out, but I found a corkboard for $6 bucks and a pack of green (my favorite color) push pins. And I thought, why not pin it all up.
Then came the part of accepting this would be my new jewelry box. So I spent about twenty minutes trying to figure out how to hammer brad nails into the walls of my apartment without a nail. A flat hairbrush works well. You’d be surprised how resourceful you can get when you’re determined to get your jewelry off your desktop. Once the hard part was done, I pushed those pins into the board and started hanging. Not bad, eh?
