Jan 28: I made these earrings. I used to make tons of these (and pop tab ones, too) and sell them at our local Farmers's Market. Eventually I realized that if I liked something I had made, I was allowed to keep it and wear it. :) So I grabbed a pink pair, a yellow pair, and a green pair. (Also, one of my favorite scarves! Rainbow and glitter!)
Jan 29: My brother had done everything he could do to save an old computer, but it was pretty bad. So he let me take it apart and I made these earrings from two capacitors I found in it.
Jan 31: While my sister and I were selling stuff at the Farmers's Market, these other jewelry makers had a booth next to us. They told us we could each pick out a pair of earrings for free if we wanted. These are what I picked.
Feb 2: If I asked you to guess who picks out the best earrings for me, you'd probably guess my sister or my mom, maybe my husband. Nope. My little brother Jacob - the sports fanatic. The kid who hates all things girly. He picked these out, along with several other fantastic pairs.
Feb 3: Boring story: Meijer clearance. But they're so pretty and make clinky noises when I move! And check out my new 69-cent sweater!! :)
Feb 4: The one year I lived at Cornerstone, two of my roommates really wanted to celebrate a roommate Christmas. These two both picked out earrings for me, saying, "I hope they're weird enough for you!" These are one of those pairs. :)
As far as my organization goes, I picked up a wire CD rack for 99 cents, and added a couple of baskets and bowls. Surprisingly, I'm putting them on my bookshelf, not the wall. I haven't figured out the final layout yet, but it's a temporary, functional solution.
