Making Ugly Earrings Out Of Boredom!

Oh boy, here I go again with my boredom antics. Yep, I get that feeling from time to time. I figure it can happen to the best of us at any age. Ha! But I have a good solution for my dilemma. I am feeling a bit antsy.

I keep a stash of odds and ends, you know broken scraps and ribbons around my house. Don't worry, I do not just keep trash; I am a DIYer, and surprisingly little bits of scraps can really come in handy.

It is no surprise to my family and friends when I am not doing hair; my second love affair is making jewelry. But, I must be honest I've made my share of ugly jewelry over the years, and I am not ashamed of that one bit. Because I find people I know love it, so it has grown onto me as well.

If you have been following me for a while, you already know I have no style goals, and Ido not follow the rules of fashion. Yes, girl, wear what the hell you want! I may be aging, but I am not dressing like no old lady, no pun intended, but I only have one life, and I am going to enjoy every moment of it by any means necessary.

Whew glad I got that off my chest.:)
This week I made something I just may like a little bit. I took some button trim, and a pack of craft embellishments, and I went down. 
I made at least five different styles, and I did it all out of boredom.

Here is a sample of what one set looks like. You can see the full tutorial on Youtube. Be prepared to be amazed at how many looks I came up with that were so ugly they actually looked a bit cute. If you squint your eyes.:)

What do you do when you are bored?
