A Birthday Gift

March 14, 2009 - 1:31pm

I made a pair of earrings for my friend, Ann, at work. It was recently her birthday and we share a love of earrings. She is always admiring mine and I do the same to her.

This is the pair I made her. I thought these colors were nice because they could go with black or brown (an essential thought when I am making earrings for myself) and also with the blue, they would go well with jeans, too! Even though we can't wear them to work. They can be weekend earrings. ;)

And this is what they look like up close. I love the multi-colored bead. I think it looks so cool.

This is a picture of how I gave them to her. I used to put earrings on a note card and stamp my business name on it. Now that I am not using that business anymore, I thought it would be fun to put them inside the card.

And this is a picture of the outside of the card and you can see the earrings on the inside. It was so fitting that the stamp was a blonde girl, because so is my friend. She asked if that was supposed to be her, and of course I said yes! I had made this card a while back, but knew I had it in my stash and wanted to give it to her.

The earrings were a huge hit and she showed them to a ton of people around the office. You really know someone liked your gift when they willingly show it to others and that made me feel good. Even after being out of the crafting loop for a while, it's nice to know I still have a little bit of creativity in my blood! :) Enjoy!
