***UPDATED & CLOSED***Beauty on a Budget: It's a New Year!

 As always, the impartial men in my family assisted me with the selecting of the winners. I cut equal sized pieces of standard white copy paper and in fine print, I copy the name of each person who has entered on one slip of paper. If you earned additional entries but commenting or Facebook or Twitter, you name is put into the pot accordingly. Today, my husband had the honor of selecting the names from the pot!

Winner of Set 1: Meek (Shameka)
Winner of Set 2: Miss Liz (Annie)

Congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone who read and entered! I'll definitely be doing more giveaways so keep supporting the blog because the next giveaway will be soon! To the winners, please send your address to and I'll have your jewelry in the mail ASAP!

The first pair I made!

Happy New Year Y'all!!!

It's 2012 and what's a better way to celebrate a new year than a giveaway? I decided to try my hand at some jewelry again. This time, I decided to make some jewelry with a button making kit, ribbon I had at home, ring blanks, earring posts, and hot glue. All of the materials that I didn't already have were purchased from my favorite craft store, Hobby Lobby. (You know I used that 40% a single item coupon!)

The next things I made...

The earrings and rings were pretty easy to make and they are just so cute. I love stud earrings so these are perfect for me. Also, I wear a 3 1/2 ring size so I NEVER can find nice fashion rings that fit so I was really happy with this project because I was able to adjust the ring to my abnormally small fingers!

 Well, y'all know I always make extras so I'm going to share with you! You will have the opportunity to win one of two sets being given away. Check out the pictures below!

The extras I made!

Set 1: Button earrings and ring made from ribbon.

Set 2: Animal print button earrings made from ribbon....

...Set 2 will also include this button ring made from navy blue and off white ribbon!

The earrings are for pierced ears and the rings are adjustable!
