My Fabulous Jewelry-Tree Display


Spring cleaning is in full effect in our home right now and I am coming across things that I have no idea why I felt the need to hold onto. Even things that I have never and will never use. I am finally getting rid of, or giving them away. Even the 40 or so baby food jars that I kept thinking I will do a craft with someday!! I closed my eyes and slowly placed them into the recycling bin. Hubby refuses to ask questions anymore and just surrenders to all the extra pileup of unnecessary things around the house. I spent months organizing and like a maniac, at night, will loose sleep over what next to organize and get rid of. I have to say it's coming along pretty well and things in the house are almost all organized and clutter free! It does feel good. My make-up drawers and costume jewelry collection were the worst. I collected so much over the years and found myself repurchasing the same things over and over because I had forgotten that I already have the same product or earrings somewhere buried in a shoebox. With the new and improved organized me, I gathered all of my shoe boxes filled with jewelry and decided to display or showcase them a bit better. At least a few of my favorite forgotten ones. I want to show you how I made my very own beautiful Jewelry-Tree Display. Check it out -- Mind you,  I might need about 40 of these trees...

For Mothers's Day or Any Day-->Straight From The Heart

I remember, as children, my sister and I would always make our own cards or gifts for our mother on Mother's Day. As the years went by, we started buying her "real" gifts such as jewelry, sweaters etc...But the ones that always meant the most to her were the homemade gifts. Those are the ones that are truly unique and cannot be bought last minute anywhere. The ones we took our time to make and put extra pride into. Now that I have my own children, I wanted to have them make things are fun and special also. Since both my mother and my mother-in-law are such amazing mothers in their own special ways, I wanted the kids to make (with lots of help from me) something for them both. A finger painted flower pot. And yeah, kids love paint+hands+mess. Make sure you do not do this on the uncovered wood dining table like I did.
