Secondly, remember that beautiful pink net book I showed you a week ago? Well, thanks to my good 'ole Dad and a birthday coming up, a very similar one (even cuter if you ask me) will be arriving at my apartment via FedEx tomorrow. I am SOOO excited. And don't worry, you'll get pictures.
Now, on to business.
I like earrings. Really, I guess it's more honest to say that I'm obsessed with earrings. Big earrings. Chandeliers, feathers, lots of beads, whatever. I love them.
It all started when I was six months old. Being the first born, and my mom being a new proud mother, she was appalled whenever strangers would walk up to me in my pink frilly dresses and headbands on my bald head and say, "What a cute little boy!" Shocking, right?
So, she took me straight to the ear piercing salon and got my ears pierced. I cried for about 2.5 seconds until they handed me a sucker. There are a couple reasons I am forever grateful for that:
1. I don't remember it.
2. I am a total needlephobe now, so who knows if I would have had the guts to get them pierced on my own, and
3. I never had a problem with ear infections.
Clearly, I have worn earrings as long as I can remember and I started wearing more funky fun earrings in college. The problem arose that they would get lost. Or tangled together. I had too many to really put in a jewelry box. I needed a new way to store them. So, after seeing this brilliant idea at a friend's house, I copied it.
It's an easy craft idea for everyone. Are you ready for this?
Yes. It's a picture frame with some screen stapled to it so I can hang my earrings on it. This photo is a little dated, and my earring holder is super full. I now need to get a bigger picture frame. But you guys, it's so easy. Here is what it looks like on the wall:
On the other wall I have some nails to hold up necklaces. Kinda ghetto, but whatever. I like it. You can get whatever kind of frame you like, in any color or design. I went with cheap for my first try. Next time I might scale it up a little. (-:
So, what do you think? Do you have a creative way to store your earrings?
