I think you are my hero! Just like your other crafts, these lil' beauties rock! I am trying to stick to smaller earrings so my 10 month old doesn't yank them out of my ear...again.

alli said...

Those are very cute and sound just as easy to make! I think I'd like the red ones best. Thanks!

Adams Family said...

Brit said...

Can I please be as cool as you are?! Seriously, you make the cutest stuff and it seems so easy, but I don't think I could ever think up this stuff. I wish I lived close by so I could get some major craft tutorials! I'd love a black or pink pair so I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I would love to win the green or off white. Tell Trey and Lucy to pick my number! ;-)

Have a great day!!

LOVE the smokin' gun picture of you. I don't know how you come up with this stuff (or the time to do it) but I'm sure glad you do! I love the black ones, so Trey & Lucy pick me!

How many time can I say THANK YOU for this how-to? Cuz you deserve it 100 times over. I seriously just saw earrings like this online last week and thought, "Hey, that doesn't look hard. I bet I could make something like that if I could find where to get the supplies." And here I am, browsing for craft ideas and stumble onto your blog and it's everything I could ask for...and more!! THANK YOU!! :)

I am adding these to every Christmas gift to women this year. Plus I'll make some for me as well!

Thanks again for all these awesome craft tips!
