Yes, it's true...there is definitely a lack of cool Jewelry Organizers out there in the world! It's actually of the top requests I got from customers when I had my storefront in Charlotte.

I pretty much had given up on finding one...until I came across this post for this very cool DIY jewelry organizer that you can create yourself if you love a craft project.

Finally...something functional that doesn't scream "i'm a jewelry organizer"! I especially am in love with the remove-able palm frond wallpaper from Chasing Paper that she used here...to me, it's the best part about this piece.

Have fun!

Do It Yourself

There are so many fun ideas out there and thanks to Pinterest, we can all learn how to do certain things like make our own Jewelry box, etc. This designer, Edmond Newton, took DIY (do-it-yourself) to a new high with is fabulous Haute Couture dress made out of...wait for it...Cardstock. Hallmark cardstock. Yes, it was a Project Runway challenge, sponsored by Hallmark, and the result is pretty unreal.

Here is Edmond's winning creation- plus a few other highlights from some very talented people, all created out of Hallmark cards and envelopes:
