animal jewelry organizers

My husband, Charles, has been busy. Our two oldest daughters have always wanted to participate in my annual 'Girl Next Door' craft show but we have never been able to quite come up with the perfect project. This year, Charles was inspired to get the girls involved and create jewelry organizers using wood and animal figurines.

The girls have had a blast choosing which animals to feature on which piece of colored wood (an Australian-themed organizer anyone?). Didn't they turn out cute? Charlotte and Amelia are counting down the days until they can sell their wares at the craft show (the proceeds of which will be their Christmas gift fund). The price per piece will be around $15.

Additionally, Charles let the girls design necklaces to sell, using some of his hand-rolled glass beads. These will be priced at under $10 each.

The show is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, November 29th from 7-9 p.m. If you are in the Las Vegas area, stop by and say "hello." I would love to meet you. For more information and for directions, click here.

I like the necklaces holder designed creatively.

This necklaces holder is actually really cute. In the picture, it just looks like some pieces of metal together but this actually displays and complements your necklaces

Oh wow. My 4 year old girl will definitely love this hanging in his room. Thanks for the sharing.
