Jewelry Frame

My niece turns 12 this year.
I can't believe it.
That makes me feel so old.
I was 10 when I first became an aunt.

For her birthday,
B has decided she wants to get her ears pierced.
That just sounds painful.
But beauty is pain, right?

I don't know if all my pain has paid off yet... but that's beside the point.

For her big NUMBER 1-2
I decided to get crafty.
Witness for yourself:
The Jewelry Frame
I had seen lots of tutorials for projects like this,
but this was my first time trying it out myself.
I really like how it turned out with the buttons and everything.
I'm also happy to announce that it didn't cost me a dime.
It is made of things that I (or my mom) had lying around the house.

Even better.
Now I want to make one for myself.
Is that wrong?

What projects have YOU been working on?
Happy crafting to all of you.

Love much,
