Martha for the Masses

Today I had one of my "Martha for the Masses"/Good Enough Solution experience.

The backing to my earring fell out and I didn't have another one in my coin purse. Instead of being all pouty about my lack of earrings for the day, I sprung into action. Believe it or not, I cut the eraser off of a pencil and am currently using it as my earring backing.

Martha should really hire me to write a book on Workplace solutions to Beauty Problems. Chapter 1: How to use a paper clip in place of a bobby pin.
If only...
