One morning I was trying to finish getting ready, and found myself desperately digging through a bowl of earrings searching for its match. Suffice to say, no matter how long I dug, I still couldn’t find the mate to my favorite pair of earrings. That’s when I decided enough-was-enough; it was time to get this bowl of wayward earrings under control. I grabbed a couple supplies and in a matter of minutes, I had solved my mismatched earring problem. Here’s how I did it.
Ultimately all I needed for this was a picture frame and some felt. I tried adding a little more structure by using some cardboard, but even sturdy cardstock would work too. Now I could settle in to organizing my earrings in a far more reasonable way, and I even found the match to the earring I was searching for earlier!
As easy as it would be to order something online to help me stay earring-organized, this was fun because I was able to use some problem-solving crafting supplies to make a tiny (but super important) improvement in my life. And my earrings deserved something better than to be abandoned in a bowl that only served as a bottomless pit for lost earrings. What’s nice too is that I could customize this to suit my own style. Why live in frustration digging for mismatched earrings when a simple project to get organized is just a few minutes (and some simple craft supplies) away.
