JazzyBee - the butterfly ones are the ones I sent Mikan in the swap but I've never heard if she got them so I never posted the picture.

Thanks, kaleesi. Unfortunately, I live in England, where everything is more expensive and often crappier. The paper you mentioned does sound cheap, though. I'll just use the card.

Thanks again for the tute!!

you can get photo paper in the poundshop.

if you pm me i can pick you up some tomorrow?

On the OCD thing - I'm kind of just kidding with that -I worked for 2 psyschiatrists and I knew they would diagnose me with something when I started and they both diagnosed me (jokingly) with OCD. But they said they liked that in a secretary.
But I'm a perfectionist and I drive myself crazy - sometimes I totally give up on making things because I can't make them good enough or I don't like how they come out. : (   It took me 2 months to figure out how to make these so I was happy with them. And I was really scared everyone would think they were cheap and tacky.

The wires on the olives are 20 guage craft wire I got at Walmarts and I bent them with one of those wild wire jigs that my mom got at Walmarts. It was my first time trying that. It probably would have been easier with the wild wire but I'm always afraid that is too easily bent and will loose its shape. I used a little bit of solder on the ends to try to keep it together. Someone else would be far better to tell you how to do wire bending! Here's a website that has some good information tho http://www.wigjig.com/jewelry-tools/WJU/techniques/alpha.htm If I didn't have the jig I never would have been able to get both to match!

I'm really glad you all liked the earrings so much!  The cool thing is you can make them out of any graphic you like - like anime or even with real photos.
