Cute as a Button

My newest craft endeavor: Earrings! Cutesy little post earrings.
I have no knowledge in how to make jewelry, no tools.
But I kept seeing all these adorable buttons at the craft store, soo..
I chopped off the backs of the buttons, sanded them down, attached earrings posts, and voila!

Though they are kind of silly, I like them and think there are some people out there who would like them too!

Here are some less-cutesy more sophisticated ones (though they're still just plastic buttons)

I plan on selling them in my etsy store, along with my hair bows and aprons, but I am going to be in Australia all summer so I'm going to wait until September to officially open my etsy.
I really love these little animal ones... The cat (at top), sheep, and pig! And their little dangly legs and things! :)

Well, I hope that you all have a great week! I'm winding down, ready for the school year to be done (ahh, the perks of working as a teacher), and finding that I'm putting off all crafts I've been meaning to do because I don't have enough time! I'll be leaving for California, my home, in less than 2 weeks to visit family..then off to Australia for the summer! Whee.

Oh Laura! I've wanted to try doing this for so long, I'm so happy to see that they came out so well for you.

As for the question on my blog, eating is a lot like the scene from Ratatouille. I associate music, but see shapes. The shapes are sort of hard to see sometimes. It's like they are over my shoulder. Like when I take a bite out of an apple, I can "see" a yellow zig-zag.
