His main issue? I would like to diagnose Hank with separation anxiety. He checks on me in the shower to make sure I'm still around. Multiple times.
Issue number two? He is a clean freak. The smell of food sends him into a tailspin. He cleans and cleans and cleans and cleans and cleans and cleans and cleans around his food dish. He'll either scoot it all around the floor or he'll find a piece of paper or random clothing around and cover his food dish with it. In the past week he's woken me up with this bizarre behavior.
Issue number three? ATTENTION WHORE.
**Disclaimer** I am not now, nor will I ever be a crazy cat lady. I just happen to live in a teeny-tiny apartment with a quirky cat and if you want me to blog, Hank will be included. Frequently. If he were a dog it wouldn't be weird. If I weren't single you'd never utter the words "crazy cat lady" at me. So leave me alone.
...and I don't know if you'll ever get to hear all my thoughts.
Or any of them for that matter. I can't put my emotions into words.
Mind, please catch up to my body.
I think I'm hooked on Panera's hazelnut coffee. It's love. I'm writing a card. I'm looking at the facebook page of an artist I purchased earrings from this weekend. Can I mention how brave it is to sit at a table and say "I made this, I'm charging this much and I think it's worth that price"? I don't think I'm there with any of my craftitude. Maybe someday? I really prefer sitting behind the safety of my computer screen and trying to sell things. I'm a pansy.
This weekend Kate, Sarah and I went on a trolley ride around the Fort and it was really fun!
As far as Christmas shopping goes...it was a bust. I want to buy local! I want to have my shopping done! I want to be the person on top of it all! We started at 11:30am and shut down Macy's at 11:00pm. That doesn't include the several breaks we took for food. I didn't want to get too grouchy! I also crossed zero people off my list. BOO.
...also known as my solution to I-don't-have-a-dresser-and-the-ziplock-bag-holding-my-earrings-really-isn't-doing-the-job-well-so-I-just-wear-the-same-earrings-every-day.
We know I'm cheap, right? This was a less than $5 project for me. If I had more ambition to scour thrift stores [or I still had the totally awesome Durham's Scrap Exchange in my backyard] I could bring the cost down more!
But I didn't.
Here are your supplies...a hot glue gun, embroidery floss and a picture frame.
My frame was on clearance for being busted at Michaels. Holla! I only need the frame and not the glass, so it worked for this girl!
I tied my knot on the backside of the frame and started wrapping....in all kinds of directions, weaving the floss from front to back. When I changed colors I always made sure my knots were on the back side.
PULL TIGHT! Embroidery floss will have some stretch and earrings can be heavy so the tighter you pull the better it will hold those earrings!
Once you've gotten all your colors and thread in place, run a bead of hot glue over the knots and thread on the backside to hold it all in place. This is jut some added security. I like added security.
And that is the easiest [cutest if I do say so myself--and I do!] earring display project you can do!
