Balls of Joy

 It's Show and Tell day at Kickin' it Old Skool! We're taking a peek at things we love and what we've been making. I've been in craftasaurus mode for the past few weeks and this is my latest adventure...

I fell head over fluffy heals for these House of Holland pom pom earrings. How kitsch, flouncy and funny-- I live for a funny accessory. (One of the great joys in life is a good conversation piece.) But not so funny at $75+ a pair.

Bring forth my glue gun!

While snuffling around a Michael's I rounded up a few plastic gems, earring backs and two ocean-blue marabou Christmas tree ornaments. It took approximately 10 seconds and $4 to make these little dangly balls of joy. They are Absurd. And I love them.

These fluffies are so fun to wear I now require all of my earrings to be extra ticklish.

New Years Eve perhaps?

What are you making, Kittens?
