Why I Started Making Earrings

Wednesday, March 30, 2011
Kristin disappears for almost an entire year.  Her whole blog is based on scrapbooking, and card making, and all things paper crafting.  Why on earth did she decide to start making earrings?

As some of you already know, I have become addicted to singing Barbershop harmony.  My boyfriend introduced me to it a couple years ago and I haven't been able to stop since.  At the moment, I am a member of Sweet Adeline, International and sing with the Pride of Baltimore Chorus and a brand new quartet, Just Sing!

As much as I love this "hobby" . . . err lifestyle, it can get pretty expensive.  I thought to myself, "I'm pretty crafty, I bet I could make the quartet earrings and we could save money that way."  Well once I started trying some ideas, I couldn't stop.  I love trying new things with the wire and seeing what comes out.  If you look really closely at the picture you can see the purple and black earrings I designed to match our walk around outfit.

I hope this helps you bridge the gap of why I am now making and selling jewelry.  I am still paper crafting and as soon as I get my new crafting area up and running we will return to the regular programming of minis and tags and pages, too.  And maybe I even have something up my sleeve on how to bridge the gap between the two.  There will be a few more announcements coming in the next couple of weeks, stay tuned!
