Have You Ever Locked Your Keys In The Trunk? Here’s What to Make So It Never Happens Again!

Calling all Jewelry Makers:
I recently went to a Flamenco show in West Palm Beach in South East Florida. It was wonderful. I thought what better way to capture the night then make some paper beads from the theater programs of Playbill to use to make jewelry.

And, I also wanted a keychain bracelet. I was always digging around in my purse for the keys and it seemed like a fight to get them out of the pocket even with a keychain on it. When I first moved down here, I lived in a rental condo and they gave us keys on a keychain bracelet made from phone chord. I fell in love with the idea instantly.

So why not put these two things together right? I think lots of people could use a keychain bracelet. I knew someone who was late to an appointment because her keys fell in the trunk of her car as she was lifting her paper stack out of it. She was an hour late. She could have used one I’m sure. We’ve all been in situations like that, right?

Comfort Bound Cay

a poem by

SketchWriterJess

If people spent time
Doing something constructive, joyful, and satisfying
  Instead of destructive...
 How would the world be?


All destructive behavior
Leads to people, items, and places
Being destroyed…
Nothing better,
Nothing brilliant…
Not even change.

Why do people destroy
In order to gain something they don’t have?



Why not take
The time to build up joy…a thing
Something, that gets better the more it’s done?



These questions
Are solutions to children
And even new adults;

During my toughest school days where
I endured bullying and misunderstood my classmates so many times when they were just joking around I’d come home from school angry, exhausted, and alone.
I’d think of the mistakes I made.
I escaped to my comfort bound sketchbook or notebook.
I’d draw or write my dreams and real life happenings.
Even as a new adult,
I continued to sketch and write despite living with pain in my head and heart.


I think…believe
People are afraid to
Hold on to the best times in
Life for fear of losing
The ability
To get the best times
Back.

I hope that
One day people
From any background,
Will be able
To go to their own
Comfort bound cay…

Any blank or lined journal will do.

Everyday.
Every night.
Getting
To where I
Must go.
Leaving should behind.
