I never really look at the information before I click on "create post" when blogging, but for some reason I did today and I'm amazed that this is post 200!
It's quite a milestone considering almost a year ago when I started this blog I had no idea what I was getting myself into and I had no idea if I would ever keep it up.
Well, I think 200 posts call for a give-away. This is totally unplanned and I have no idea what the give-away will be, but I'll come up with something. So, if you leave a comment on this post, later in the week I'll pull a name out of the hat and send that person a present.
I'm glad I noticed that this was post 200 because this was going to be a very boring post.
I've been in a slight rut the past few days not really feeling like doing much of anything. I did make a mushroom wristlet yesterday (it was a custom order for Etsy)
Yesterday I managed to make this in about 10 minutes. It's an earring holder inspired by this. I can only show the front of it because trust me, the back isn't nearly as pretty. I just hot glued a piece of batting to the cardboard part of the frame, covered it in fabric (hot glued to the back of the frame too) and then hot glued some ribbon to the back.
I know for sure this is a project that will get tons of use. I don't own many earrings, but the ones I do own are in little jars/bowls scattered all over the house. It will be nice to finally have them all in one place where I can see them.
I guess I should also post a reminder that The Challenge is winding up soon so don't forget to post your projects on Flickr!!! Sadly, the challenge for me will be continuing for a while longer.
