Spring Break Project: Getting Crafty

Spring Break!!!!! 45 Degrees?
Last week in Illinois, we had record breaking high temperatures. I even got a bit of a sun burn last weekend. 
Today I had to wear my stretchy pants under my jeans. Burr!
I decided to take a break from painting and return to my jewelry-making roots. I headed down to the local bead shop just blocks from my house. I went in with the intention of purchasing enough to make about 10 pairs of earrings. Some intended for me and some for the shop and my etsy page. Well...30 minutes later I left with enough to make about 50 pairs of earrings. I love getting the creating itch but it can be a bit costly. ;)
Earrings are a quick and easy project for a cold rainy day. Here is a glimpse of what I worked on today:

Thanks for looking!
