My Get Well Necklace and Storage Idea!

My Get Well card, necklace and novel storage idea all came from my daughter, Amber!!
She MADE this beautiful necklace and I can't wait to wear it!

She also shared this GREAT idea for storing jewelry!
She has a similar sewing kit and said she was using it now for the necklaces she is making.
Soooooo....I emptied MY sewing kit into the various drawers of my Bernia Sewing Machine!
Then I began to sort my jewels! Many of my favorite pieces came from Sabrina's grandmother. She loved 'BLING!' All my jewelry HAD been stored in a storage chest in my bathroom......which is now under construction! I had to relocate these and after dumping them first one place and then another I finally loaded them into three drawers in the guest room.  Space is a precious commodity in this house! By using this sewing chest I now have TWO free and empty drawers!! I continue to use one for the seasonal jewelry and odd and end pieces I could not fit into the chest.

Thanks, Amber, for this great idea!!
