I am back to normal schedule now at work and am not getting in early anymore so I didn't have time for an outfit photo yesterday. I liked what I was wearing so I attempted it at 6pm a good 11 hours later than I usually take them. I know why too, makeup isn't fresh, hair gets a bit messy and WRINKLES.
I tried the porch again. I left my damn tripod at work. I balanced it on Dave's ornamental gas can he bought as a gift and am willing to bet money will keep for himself.
Too dark so I tried my bedroom. I assumed OH HEY I can crop them. But I had company.
They follow me around when I get home. I should of known. Right after this picture Waffle pulled the camera down off the ledge and smashed it on the floor with the LENS OUT.
I sat the camera back up walked back over and this was the very next picture.
She went from pulling camera down to lounging in oh .5 seconds. I didn't even know she was there until I uploaded the pics.
Since those didn't all work how I planned I decided I'd show some of the organization I have been working on.
My jewelry. Some may know this but I used to make jewelry. At points in my life I have had online businesses, sold in stores, to friends and did the craft fair circuit. Between that and the impressive collection of costume jewelry pieces I inherited, soI have a lot of stuff to store. The hard part was seeing and using what I had. I think I found good solutions.
For the bangles I simply put them in a box standing up in my drawer.
I put my rings in a small pyrex in the same drawer and all the odd little bits in a bin as well. I put all my little bags in between the bins.
For earrings I got these great boxes at the Container Store.
I have a bigger one for bigger beaded items as well. I have a small one for travel too. I think they were like $5 for the big one under $2 for the small one.
Then all my necklaces live on this belt hanger also from the Container Store. I organized each ring by colors. I love all the plastic beads I got from my step gram Katie.
I love these boxes so much I got some for my samples.
When I take off my rings I shove them on my bunnies on top my bureau.
That La Mer box doesn't have product in it. I take boxes to store things. I have a delicate big necklace that lives in there so it doesn't get crushed. I keep small trinkets in the cupcake. Things with no better home.
I don't have any fancy jewelry and if I did I might store them in a more special way. Most my stuff is plastic and fake. My "good" stuff I wear all the time and don't take it off.
