I painted the hideous mirror frame that Marble Man found at the yard sale last weekend and it looks FAB-U-lous (as I knew it would)! The foamcore insert is almost done: cut to shape, covered with a piece of flannel, and then black velvet. I'm attaching some pretty teal ribbon at regular interval which the earring cards will hang from. That should look neater than pinning the cards to the velvet.

This morning I spent redesigning my earring cards, which were VEEeeerrrrry boring. I thought, "How fun would it be for a drawing of a woman's face to 'wear' the earrings?" I dug out my sketch pad and found a drawing which would work, made up a neat WORD document, and printed them out.

I decided to use three different pictures so that it wouldn't look overwhelming to have 50-100 of the same image repeating across a wall. It'd be like looking through a fly's eyes!
I think they are really gorgeous , and can't believe it took me so long to design something like them before now. Let me know what you think: be honest now! Imagine walking into a space and being faced with a wall of these faces looking out at you. Do you think it will be too much? I'm hoping not - since I've already converted my inventory over to them! But, if the consensus is that it will be overkill, I can change them back.
