Aja and I made these earrings based off a design from a Rhode Island School of Design student’s work. I forget how fast earrings come together. These took less than fifteen minutes and cost about a dollar to make. Talk about a satisfying project.
I love teapots. I’ve never had one before, never really used one before this year. My mom is what we in the fam call an ice tea-based life form. She consumes massive quantities of black tea, and is of the school where you microwave water in a Pyrex cup, steep, and immediately pour it into a Tupperware pitcher. There’s always a full box of ice and a full pitcher of tea at her house; it’s comforting, really. All this to say I’ve never experienced the benefits of a teapot before this year. This little blue one was in my stocking this Christmas and I use it almost everyday (even if it’s just to display pretty earrings). I’m not really sure how I got by before.
