I was really needing something to do with my necklaces. This is a really easy and cheap solution. I used some leftover wood from a project my husband had been working on. It is about 1 inch thick and about 2 feet long. I bet you could get some scrap wood at Home Depot or Lowes that would work for this for free. I sanded it a little bit, then painted it black to match my bathroom. I bought a pack of 50 hooks at Walmart for about $2.50. I only used about 20 of them. Then I just got a leveler to make sure it was straight and hung it up. I used two long nails in the end to hang it up because I was afraid that a screw at the end of the board might split the wood. I wanted to make it really secure, so I did put one screw in the middle and it didn't split it.

These are similar to a texas sheet cake, I was told. I got this recipe from my brother's wife's family (whom I just love and pretty much consider them like my family as well). I made TWO trays of these brownies for a church activity, and they were gone in an instant, I didn't even get one. These are delicious!

I got a pack of three wooden shadow boxes at Michaels. I painted the frames, traced the back part of the frame onto scrapbook paper. I mod podged the scrapbook paper on the back. When everything was dry I hot glued the little decorations inside. My girl's room was in Hello Kitty, so I used to little stuffed animals and a pair of baby ballet slippers. My boy's room was in sports, so I used a sporty Snoopy stuffed animal and some sports balls. Pretty easy room decorations and pretty cheap. You could fill the shadow boxes with more meaningful stuff as well. My friend, called her's 'Memory boxes', and put in her new baby's hospital bracelets and little hospital hat, some pictures of the newborn baby in the hospital and stuff like that that reminds her of the birth. A very cute way to display all that stuff that is a little bulky for a scrapbook, but still precious keepsakes.
