So my 9 year old son BEGGED me to let him get his ears pierced for two years.  I finally caved and let him do it last summer.  The problem is finding masculine earrings for him.  He had wanted and wore some fake diamond studs for a while (wanting to be like his dad) but got made fun of and called a girl Sad  So I scoured Etsy and found some really neat earrings but they were rather expensive.  I decided I could make them myself.  Our fellow craftster Breegy had mentioned that she was graphic designer so I asked her to do a personal swap with me for 10mm images.  I ordered the earring supplies and made all these earrings for my kids over the weekend.  I will keep a few pairs for myself but they were both super excited and my son now has quite a few pairs of boy themed earrings to choose from.  Some of the Mod Podge isn't 100% dry on these which is why a few of them still appear cloudy...

He was!  He wore the Minecraft ones today since they are green.  He was quite excited about the Pokeball ones too.

Such a good mom, hopefully the people that made fun of him are jealous of his awesome earrings!

I guess yesterday he was being told that his mom is AWESOME!  And the kids couldn't believe that I made them. So take that little bullies!

Glad he had a good day with compliments cause he gets teased for having his ears pierced and having long hair.  I guess most 9 year olds still think in terms of what boys are supposed to look like and what girls are supposed to look like rather than "style".  He is just mimicking the way skateboarders, surfers, etc look and he thinks it's cool.

They are!  He doesn't let it get to him most of the time... Today I think he wore his Big Bang Theory earrings.  I am so glad he is liking them all!
