    It's pretty obvious that Jeanne Chan, curator of ShopSweetThings, has a keen eye for cool. But, when she's not searching out new, must-know shops in her native SF, the bona fide Pinterest whiz — and mother of two — plans playdates with her equally stylish mom friends. The good news? We're tagging along!

    So, this weekend, I was being spontaneous and decided to do a fun little DIY project. As you know, I don’t do DIY here very often. However, I got inspired by a pin recently using dot stickers to make polka dot print (oh, the power of Pinterest), so I decided to apply the same concept on an appetizer plate to make what I called a “DIY Polka Dot Jewelry Dish” — kinda proud of myself, can’t you tell?

    What I’m most excited about this DIY is that it will literally cost you less than $5 and no more than 15 minutes to make. Seriously, do you think I can handle anything more intensive? I was even able to do this while Hayden napped, so it was the perfect little project for me. I’m so happy that it turned out well, because you know, all I want to do is share the good stuff with you!
