Day 3

Well here I am again! Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere lol :o)

I had a million idea's run through my as to what I whanted to do for todays earrings. You know, with all that time I had to think about it, I still couldn't come up with a single Idea. The other thing I started to think about was, "What am I going to write about?"....and you know what, I'm just winging it! lol

So I sat at the table and just started to look at what I had in front of me, and a few idea's started to roll around in my head. Then I saw a particular item that I have been dying to use, and then it hit me- I knew what I wanted to do!

I dont have much to say for them, except that I love them and wish I could wear long dangly earrings! Besides it's also my favorite color!
Here are three photo's of today's earrings <3
Silver plated earrings (lead and nickel free); 21 gauge silver plated wire; purple chained gems,

Day 2

Finally have a few minutes here to write today's writeup :o) What a day! I hope that everyone else had a great relaxing Sunday!

To tell you the truth I have no idea how my day's will go, what will happen or I have no idea what will be the story behind my day's pair of earrings (If there's a story) or even what my inspiration will be.

Today there are two things that have inspired me for my pair of earrings. I am one of those people who loves music, and when I have a new favorite song It takes me a LONG time to get sick of it and I can listen to that song over and over and OVER again! My favorite song right now is a song by Jessie J.

Besides liking Jessie J and how she's a much tamer version looking like Lady Gaga- she has beautiful vioce and her accent is pretty cool too! lol (Makes me probably sound like a teenager)  I love the words to this song, the truth of it all. You know if you've gotten cought up in life's day to day things or having money as an important part of your life- no matter what if you think back into your life you thought like that at one time, and nothing mattered all that much , especially money. (I know,  I know pretty hard these days with prices of things).                                       If only we all had.......

Which brings me to the other part of what inspired me towards making these earrings. I myself struggle with money alongside billions of other people, I was worrying about paying off a loan, paying my bills and making sure we have what we need in the house for this week.
Then I was thinking how I wish I could help out a friend of mine who's 7 months pregnant and her puppy is really sick (pneumonia, believe it or not) but he's just gotten worse and has had to spend two nights at the vet- Wow! Now that will be a bill! So here she is saving and planning to go on mat leave, and now she has this unforseen circumstances that have come up!

So in short we all stress out about money, it doesn't matter how much we have or dont have!  For some people it's okay for them to love money, it's just a matter of finding a balance in life with everything!
With that being said here are the earrings I made!
Silver plate earrings (nickel and lead free; silver plated 21 gauge wire; glass faceted emerald green beads.
So these are today's earrings, what do you think???

Welcome to Day ONE of Earrings A Day!

First off I want to thank you for taking your time to come here and have a chance to have part in my blog!
With that being said, let's get on to the details of my Blog.

I was thinking for days of what I wanted to do, something different, something that other people would take interest in and this is what I have come up with.

Earrings A Day!
This is my blog, my journey that I plan on doing for one year- 365 Days! It is just like what it sounds like, Earrings a day! I will be making a pair of earrings every day for one whole year! Yes, that is a lot of earrings! Now this is great in itself, but I didn't want to make this just about making something for a year, I want it to have a purpose.

Every batch of earrings (earrings I made in one month), have a purpose! Half of the earrings are going to be given away to readers (followers), and The other half will be sold for $10.00 a pair. Great right?! Well there's more to it!

I am not taking the money for myself, I am going to be giving it to a charity! With the earrings that are being given away, you will have an option to donate some money if you'd like (don't feel obligated, it's just an option for you to have part in this giving away). I plan on keeping everyone in the loop as to what has been earned every month to two months!

How did I decide on a charity you ask?? Well I haven't, YOU will! I began with something that is personal for me, (with P.C.O.S. I have not been able to have children since having my beautiful daughter 9 years ago- today! So all choices of charities have to do with Children). The poll is on the right side, you can go and vote when you wish. At the end of the 365 days I will announce the winning charity, but remember that's up to all you!

With all my daily health issues and whatnot I need to take my mind off of things and even if it's for a few minutes a day, I am happy that I am working towards a goal....and I'm doing it with support of other's!

                       DAY ONE
So today- I made my FIRST pair of earrings!
The inspiration....the story on these earrings....These are going to be given away, but they are going to someone who I have already chosen to get the first pair.
My husband volunteers at a homeless shelter, and a few nights ago someone who regularly comes into the shelter passed away. My husband found him and did cpr, what was a long night for his family- a long night of not knowing the outcome of him being sick. He stopped breathing a few times and they got him breathing again. He was only 21 yrs old, and his life sadly ended due to pneumonia. Today my husband attended the funeral/celebration of life today, and found it very heartbreaking. He sadly has also left his 9 month old daughter behind.
This hits hard close to home, when we have children, we couldn't even imaging going through something like this! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
These earrings are going to his mother. <3
Earrings are gunmetal black (nickel free); 'Black Lace' mini pendant set
