I Love making earrings...

Ok, so I ended up celebrating yesterday and went shopping. I didn't break the bank or anything...just got a few goodies that the typical crafter tends to go bonkers over. Ribbon for tags, folders to TRY and stay organized, glue dots (my ultimate tool!), and of course glow in the dark bracelets! I mean really who doesn't need to have a little fun at night with glow in the dark bracelets? I know we do!
Seriously though, I needed to get some beads for making earrings!
I can't seem to make enough of these little babies in all the colors shown.
Made a few samples for ya. As always they are prettier in person. Which ones are your favorite? As much as I ADORE turquoise, and green just seems so appropriate for Spring coming's the white with irridescence that I need the most in my wardrobe! Have you noticed how much white we are seeing in fashion lately? I think that home decor follows suit....get ready for an onslaught of white in ways you've never seen it used before.
This is how I display my earrings at the store. They hang on a little display rounder, and folks just seem to like them you know? I'm so happy they do....I love making them when I've got the time!
So I had a happy day just basking in the glow of all that is Storque. Thanks to all of you out there who made such lovely comments. I am so happy to be a part of all this creative bliss. I am totally frustrated that I can't do everything I want to do....the ideas are welling up inside me and I want to act on everyone of them....but I do have responsibilities to my husband, my kids, and many other folks. SO, until I can do it all...yeah, right....I'll make earrings. Hope you've enjoyed!
P.S. this is what my hubby did yesterday with the boys to give me some peace and quiet. What a great guy! And he's a good photographer! Edited by me.
Have a great day people!
Trish :o)
