my crafty self

Anyone who knows me, knows the last word I would use to describe myself is "crafty".  I am lucky to surround myself with plenty of crafty folks (Mom, Melinda, Michelle) but being crafty just isn't me. 

That being said, I've been going nuts about my jewelry box.  I can't tell you the number of times I would lament the disorganization to Eric.  He finally responded with "get a 1x4 piece of wood and put some nails in it and hang your necklaces."  Which is exactly what I wanted him to say...and then do for me.

Melinda showd me a picture from the dreaded beloved Pinterest, where a woman used doorknobs instead of nails and I was sold.  And yet, my non-crafty self was stressing over finding the right knobs, painting the piece of wood, hanging it up and spending a ton of money, trying to figure it out.  If this befuddled frame of mind doesn't convince you that I'm not ready for Pinterest, I don't know what will!

So, to make a long story short, I finally ended up with hooks (cost= $3.00) and screwed them into the drywall. 
I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

On a completely unrelated side note, I am thinking I might start curling my hair.  I haven't done this in years but as I grow out my hair for Jodie's wedding in August, I'm tired of it looking like an overgrown bob.

What do you think?

I'm just not sure...

What say ye?
