My hair has been short for a while so I haven’t been able to get it into a pony tail. I’ve relied heavily on bobby pins to add flare. But bobby pins are so boring, right?

It’s summer. It’s warm and sunny (sometimes) and it makes me think of flip fops, bright pink nail polish and toe rings. I like them a lot, and used to have a few. Instead of buying more, what does a maker do? We make our own.

It doesn’t look like it, but these Christmas tree earrings were actually very easy to make. They would make a nice last-minute gift idea for some of the ladies of your list that you have yet to buy for.
