A little bit of lock picking…
Today, I got the unexpected opportunity to break into the china cabinet I had acquired from my aunt a few months ago. The ordeal all started an hour ago when I decided to lock the door with its skeleton key. This was the first time I tried locking the lock. So instead of trying locking the lock with the china cabinet empty, my first try was after I had put in my new essential oil bottles and some new wool to create dryer balls. Panic mode set in after I discovered the lock wasn’t working when I tried to unlock the cabinet to get some wool. EEEK!
So after looking up unlocking skeleton key cabinets on Google, I decided to try my hand at picking the lock. After many failed attempts and curse words, I finally got it unlocked. Lesson learned – Don’t trust old locks. I with I could say I learned a new skill. Hopefully I won’t need to pick any locks in my future because, frankly, I stink at it.
On a side note, I have received my essential oil bottles and I’m currently working on designing labels. I’m waiting on my shipment of essential oils, and they should be here next week and I will be able to begin packaging, photographing and listing them in my shop. YAY! I’m so exited!
