Your "Key" to well.... Everything!

Hello World!

We are The Sapphire Key! ~ We are your "key" place for advice, help, how-to, and stuff to buy that you don't need but WANT!

The Sapphire Key started out of Sammy's house.  She started making aprons that, I felt, were showroom quality.  I convinced her that she needed to sell these to the world!  ~ Yes, they are THAT good!

Once we started this idea of actually selling these amazing aprons we started to really get excited.  We have created a whole pile of goodies that you might not need - but that you will definitely want!  However, we soon realized that just setting up a website and blog to sell the goodies just wasn't going to be enough.  We decided that with Sammy's incredible sense of "how-to" and my sense of entertaining and general "know how" (I guess I should have said "basic" know how)... that we could wrap all of that together and make something really special.  A place that people could turn to, to do just about anything.  Literally, anything.

So, with that being said... Welcome to our first post as The Sapphire Key!

With this blog we are hoping to give you a fun place to go and get fun information.  Not only fun... but useful.  From how to sand down and re-finish that old rocking chair that has been sitting in your house for 6 years... to fixing your leaky toilet.

I speak from experience when I mentioned the "old rocking chair sitting in your house".   It took me 6 years to get the courage  to re-finish my grandmothers favorite rocking chair... 6 YEARS!  ~ I was always too afraid to do it by myself.  I truly didn't think I could do it.  I always thought that I would have to pay someone else, but I didn't know who I could trust with it.  Well, guess what?  I finally decided that I could trust myself.  And with the help of some really helpful friendly people at Home Depot, and a shot of courage from Sam - I finally did - myself!   And, it turned out beautiful ~ I'll post a picture soon! 
So, when Sam mentioned a self-help section, I was all for it! I couldn't think of a better way to help more people like me.    Unlike me, Sam can do anything... and if she has never done it... then stand back and watch her learn how... and 20 minutes later she'll be teaching you!

What do you need to learn?  Do you want to learn how to paint?  How to fix a leaky toilet?  How to change a light fixture?  Change a head light on your car?  Use a table saw?  Re-finish furniture?  Make a hair bow?  Braid your daughter's hair?  Hang curtain rods? ...  Whatever you need, we will hopefully have you covered in time!  (And if we haven't addressed your "issue" yet, let us know and we'll see what we can do to help.)

And, if you it's not a "how-to" you need, maybe you need help planning an awesome New Year’s party... or kids birthday party... a Halloween party... whatever!   I can assist you in that area.  One of my favorite things to do is plan theme parties!  I'll be posting various party ideas - which will include the food, drinks, decoration, games, favors, etc!

If none of the above suits you, then you can click on our website link and head over to our store and buy one of everything we have!  ~ Either is good for us!


Thanks for stopping by!
