Today Has Not Been My Day....

Today just wasn't my day... I had a long list of things I wanted to get done since Erik and I were both off all day. Almost none of it was accomplished for one reason or another.
I DID manage to get a costume, but not one I am particularly excited about... and I still couldn't get Erik on board for dressing up. I found a big Hotdog costume and I tried to get him to go as that and write IDOW on it for "I dream of Weenie" his favorite place in town.. he shot that down quickly.
After all of our errands, which included picking up the mirror that was made for our halltree thingy, which PS. Mirrors are most $$ than I thought. I was thinking $13 and it was actually more like $30.. .and after about 2.5 hours of nagging Erik to hang it, we are both holding it up as he was drilling the hardware and it SHATTERED. Cant tell you how disappointing that was!
Moving on... I took a tip from Nashville Firefly and made one of these cool jewelry hanging thingys. I will admit it was not as easy as it seemed at first, and I cut myself on that wire several times but it is quite practical! I HEART earrings.. the big, shiny , tacky ones!
I tried a smaller one for the necklaces but not sure how well that is working out....

and we did get the beds swapped out tonight thanks to our GREAT neighbor Grouts. Unfortunately, ALL of the sheets I have been stockpiling for this event are for DOUBLE beds not QUEEN. RAH ! Rah to the RAH RAH RAH. And as if that weren't enough... one of the doggles decided to have a poop snack and came running in stinking to High Heaven right when Erik and I figured out the THIRD pair of sheets was too small. GEESH maneesh.
So I leave you with a picture of our small progress. Perhaps more tomorrow.

Sorry about your day! Sorry about your mirror!

I have seen a jewelry organizer made with an old shutter and those little hooks....but I'm thinking I like your idea better!

YESSS LG!!! Your earring holder is so fabulous! You even added hooks for the earrings that didn't quite work with the wire mesh...so creative! Love it! As for the rest of the stuff, that's when you step back and punt...try again tomorrow!
