I'm feeling somewhat restless today and I'm not even sure what to do with it all.  I still have things to do around here like finish my birdhouse, seal the boy's birdhouses, seal the clay ornaments, and wrap some gifts.  I also need to do an errand run.  But right now, I'm feeling super restless and like nothing feels right.  UGH.  Even blogging doesn't feel right but I wanted a way to get stuff out of my head if that makes any sense. 

Ok, I finally listed those jewelry things I've been meaning to list.  That's what I've been doing... working on furniture and jewelry displays.  Mostly, a display style storage thing for long dangly earrings.  Let me see if I can get a photo...

Yup.  There it is!  It's basically an old ugly frame that I have stripped down, painted, and affixed mesh to.  You just stick your earrings through and TADA!  No more tangled and jumbled up earrings in your jewelry box.  I don't charge and arm and a leg -- I don't see the point.  But there it is!  I doubt they will move.  I had high hopes in the beginning but now... UGH.  I'm not myself it seems.  Not sure what it is.  I've lost the pep in my step.

I think partly I'm just not a Winter person.  I hate that it's cloudy, cold, and dreary.  I hate I can't just go outside and do stuff.  I think part of it is I'm fried.  And lastly, I'm thinking it's just that feeling of never being 'done'.  So, my solution is that I am just going to slow down and stop stressing myself senselessly.  And if things need to get done, then I just need to buckle down and get it done.  So, I've listed those things and I'm going to be listing more come Feb.  I would list sooner, but it seems like it's a slump at that time.  But I may list them anyways.  I need to get some things out of here that haven't moved, yet.  Know what I mean? 

It doesn't help that I've had horribly heartburn for two days now.  I'm not sure what is causing the issue, but I'm going to lay off the acidic food for a couple of days.  I had less coffee yesterday, but I had leftover spaghetti and it got horrible after that.  So no leftover pizza for me today!  I also didn't have any alcohol last night.  I just can't figure out where this has come from.  It's driving me a bit crazy....  I'm going to try to lay off heavy coffee today, lower acid foods, and not sure on alcohol.  Even though that stuff isn't what triggered it.  UGH. 

Well, enough with the whining.  I think I'm going to make some lunch and hot cider and relax until the hubby gets up.  Then it's off to run a few errands and tie up a few things around here like the birdhouses and ornaments.  They are gifts for the grandparents... not sure if they will like them, but there you go!


  1. I was going to make a display like this for my ear danglies, but then I got lazy. I picked up a dollar store place mat that is made out of that textured squishy holy stuff you line drawers with, and then I just nailed that directly to the wall. It is blue, and nothing so nice as yours, but it works. The frames look so much nicer though! Where are you selling these, and for how much?

    1. I sell them online through FB locally. Price depends on size! I also make stud boxes for stud earrings. :) Anyways, prices range from $20 up to $40. If I do a custom, it's closer to $40.

  2. Jewlz, I want to wish you a merry Christmas. I hope you holidays are fill with joy and laughter! You have been a great friend to me over the years. Thank you so much. And I hope from the bottom of my heart, that Christmas will find you well this year. :)
