how to:

Tonight I made This:

I have a smallish-medium sized jewellery collection that I just don't use. It's really sad. I've figured out that it's because I keep it all smushed together in a box and so I don't even remember what it is that I have.

First step in fixing this: An earring holder.

A shoebox lid + pretty paper from one of my favourite shops, Trade Aid + glue + a nail to poke holes = and there you have it! I am quite happy with it, actually a little too proud of it, so this is why I am displaying it on here, almost immediately.

In a quaking update, we have now had over 1000 earthquakes in Christchurch, over the last three weeks. The first one was the big one, the aftershocks vary in size and depth. This morning our entire church building was shaken by a relatively small 3.6 and a 4.1, but the epicentre was only a few blocks away - an interesting experience. Who knows how long they'll keep coming? They're still interesting to talk about with every single person you meet, but they're becoming second nature to me now.

that's the prettiest earring holder I've ever seen in my life

I like it!

I use a bulletin board to hang my necklaces from. I decorated the board with paper too, but it's not as pretty as your earring holder.

Beautifully done!

I can't believe you've had so many quakes. I think knowing there might be one at any time would freak me out... Postpone the flu shot...what if a quake happens once the needle is already injected! I'm just paranoid like that, particularly with needles.
