For Christmas in 2010, I wanted to do a little something for the ladies I work with, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money. So I made them all earrings!





I made these sequined ones for my sister. They turned out much better than I though they would!

Then I started playing around with buttons.



I kept the blue ones for myself, but I've never actually worn them. I can't decide if I like them or not.
I made these in Auburn colors for my mother-in-law. I worried they might be a little too young or tacky, but she wears them on football days.

I also made all the little cards that the earrings are on. Overall, they were inexpensive and fun-to-make gifts.
Thanks for looking!

The sequin ones did turn out great! I love the ones at the bottom too. Makes me wish I had pierced ears  Smiley

Thank you for the compliments! The sequined ones are great because they're so LIGHT too.

I think I might reconstruct my blue button earrings into something a little smaller.

It's nice to hear from you, lovesclutter! I've been a stranger around these parts lately.
