Coolest. Earrings. Ever.

These are my FAVORITE earrings, ever since I got them a few months back. I met Christy Petterson at the Summit of Awesome last May. She's the face behind abardis, and makes the most fabulous silkscreened earrings ever. The floral pattern on these is from her grandmother's bathroom wallpaper. She silkscreens it, and other designs she's created, in various colors on shrinky-dink.

A great pop of color, and a great way to spruce up even the most boring of days. LOVE 'em!

Crafty Field Trip Time!

Last month my crafty partner-in-crime Mary Blanca headed up to Baltimore on a Hello Craft field trip to check out the Biggs and Featherbelle Lather Lab with a few other Hello Crafters. We had so much fun learning how they make soap, put lip balm in a tube and make their business a success. We even got to make our own body scrubs at the end.

Check out the article here and the Flickr feed of photos from Hello Craft here.
