Sister-ly Inspiration

My sister Christy is wonderful in so many ways. I am constantly fascinated by her funky style and innovative solutions to common problems. Jewelry organization is something that is frustrating for me. I love some of the pieces that I've collected over the years, but I never had a great way to store them. Tangled necklaces and separated earring sets are just not fun. Her recent blog idea was the PERFECT solution to my pesky problem. My version isn't as adorable as her artichoke fabric covered version, but it does the job. THANK YOU SO MUCH CHRISTY!!

Basic formula: bulletin board + ribbon + decorative tacks + cup hooks + fabric (optional) = fun & functional jewelry organization!!!

i love this so much! jamie made me one recently that is similar, but it's made of a piece of window screen, which also works pretty nicely.
