WW - Allow me to toot my own horn...

Can I just say that I am not generally a crafty person. I have lofty aspirations for myself, but many projects I envision myself doing either never get finished, or hell, never even get started. (I'm sure there are some others out there).


That being said (even though this is Wordless Wednesday), I did finish this:


The spools around the edge are for hanging hair elastics, necklaces, bracelets, or whatever might need to hang. The ribbons in the middle are, well, for barrettes and clips. When she gets older, she can use the ribbons for earrings. I got a little ahead of myself and, instead of buying pink acrylic paint (pre-mixed), I bought a set of acrylics with the idea of mixing whatever color I might need. Um, yeah. The art major husband really didn't help me out much with the color mixing, so it wasn't exactly the shade of pink I had in mind. Oh well. And as for her name, it's not centered (I did try to pencil it in beforehand, but just sort of said Screw it) and in a fit of extreme stupidity, tried to freehand with a paintbrush. That was so many kinds of stupid, I can't even express it adequately. If I ever attempt another one of these, I will definitely be using a paint pen for the name.

What do you think? Should I try another prototype and try selling these babies on Etsy? Be honest!
