2010 was a really, really, REALLY rough year for me. And although I have nothing but excitement for all that awaits me in 2011, it got off to a rocky start when my Grandpa passed away last week. Why am I bringing this up? I'm bringing this up because my friend Shana has been such a huge support throughout all of it. She never gets sick of listening to me and always has something uplifting to say. Even if she doesn't have a solution, she at least has a joke to make me laugh. I love her to death and wanted to do a little somethin' for her. I made these earrings for her. It was my first attempt at making earrings. My friend Jenny (who WILL be starting up an Etsy site to sell her AMAZING jewelry and I WILL be blogging about it) showed me how to make a simple set of earrings. I picked out my beads and worked with tiny pliers to come up with this cute pair. One thing is for sure. Making earrings is a lot harder than it looks. Just sayin'.
Anyway, I wrapped them in blue paper, affixed a cute sticker, wrote a sweet message in a card and gave it to her on a "Sister Night". She loved it and I'm glad, because it's the LEAST I can do.My Grandpa is at peace and 2010 is behind me. I know 2011 will be awesome because I have awesome people in my life- like Shana. :)
