It was totally buggering me. Plus I'd bought this totally cool key rack display at Resurrect that I needed to use at some point. I have a display buying addiction. I admit it. And then it hit me....paint chips....oooo...in my tablecloth colors...ooooo.....So I threw on my purse, grabbed Lily and off we headed to Lowe's. And this is where it gets funny.
Picture this: I am standing in Lowe's with black shorts, orange tank, hair in pony and minor make-up on staring at the paint chips. I'm grabbing said paint chips with almost a gleeful giddiness at my cleverness. No, like seriously I may have been giggling. With names like they use, who can't help but laugh? I'd a nice little stack in my hand when out of NOWHERE comes the paint boy....a new boy btw. I know all the paint people in Lowe's, and he was new. And he scares the beejesus out of me. "Can I help you Mam?" I whip my pony so fast I am sure it coulda whipped him had he not been 6' tall. When the heck has a paint person actually offered color advice in these places...ever? My reply, "um....no. Just had a few minutes and wanted to check out paint chips." And he says, "Well are you looking for any particular color, you have quite an assortment there?" Me: "Oh, I know. I just love all these fun colors. I am wanting to do something totally fun in my laundry room. Like stripes in ALL these colors." And I am SURE I was smiling and batting my blue eyes and giggling and praying to goodness he was buying my load of...well..poo. And then thank heavens the real paint man needed him. So I moved my body to the next section and acted like I was comparing colors. But I was really sneaking more into my purse. Because at this point I was sweating. And then I ran outta that store like a mad woman. Jumped in the Jeep, came home and drank a cold beer on the porch and started laughing at myself!!! And then put these together:
1. punched 3 holes in the top of the card
2. using a glue dot (I have a slight obsession with this product. I have them in every size and thickness made.) I attached the cabochon to the card
3. slipped the chain through the holes on the left and right sides
4. cut the top zipper portion of an embroidery baggy off (another little thing I collect are little baggies of all size and shapes. like I CAN not leave Hobby Lobby without buying little baggies. crazy.)
5. attached a glue dot strip to the baggy and attached it to card (yes, they make glue dot strips not just dots.)
6. gently placed the extra chain in the baggy
7. hung on the awesome vintage key display!
