Love these earrings!!! They are super cute. The shipping was super fast and came in a nice box and organza bag. I bought 2 pairs for myself with the kids names on them and a pair for my friend who just got married. I love the idea. These would make great cufflinks too. Thank you so much!

About

Who knew an argument with a boyfriend would make me so creative!

As a child, I always loved arts and crafts time in school and summer camp but never knew I was "creative" or "artistic" until I was about 22. My life as a young adult revolved around my young daughter, my job and my two year relationship with my (now long time) boyfriend. At that time in my life I was a somewhat insecure and needy girlfriend. I wanted more time than he could give me, being that he worked full time, was a musician and artist and also had a slew of friends that he had weekly plans with. During one of our seldom arguments (when I was demanding more time be spent with me) he told me that "I need to get a hobby". I know that those words my make him sound a bit cold hearted...and at the time I was a tad angry - but that is honestly the best advice anyone has EVER given me.

The next day, I refused to call him. I sat in the house moping about, watching HGTV. There was some program on teaching how to create art out of eggshells. Mmm Hmm, you read right - EGGSHELLS! I went in the kitchen, made an omelet and saved all of the shells and went to town creating a piece of art out of them. I was so proud of myself and realized that he was so right...All those years I needed a hobby. I found it so rewarding to be doing something that I loved.

Since then I have been on a non stop quest to learn as many creative genres as possible. I taught myself how to knit, crotchet, paint, and sew. And my aunt taught me to quilt a few years ago. I love starting with nothing; just some yarn and some needles or a blank canvas and some paint and watching something beautiful, unique and/or functional emerge from your fingertips. It is an amazing feeling!

I also love to repurpose items whenever possible. I love taking what someone considers trash and "upcycling" it into something wonderfully unique that someone would proudly wear or display in their home.

And 15 years later, that man with the "harsh" words (of wisdom) remains my constant encouragement and inspiration, my biggest fan, and my very best friend and I could never thank him enough for FORCING me to find myself and what I love in life...besides him.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
