so my mom and i scooted over to the ODU international festival this afternoon...so fun! there were a lot of people there to scope it out, merchants, food vendors, it was a good time.
one of the merchants is a friend of mine from work who makes the coolest earrings. they're paper mache- made entirely of recycled newspaper and then painted- they're all unique and as a bonus, they're super light. she's always wearing them around the office, and i'm constantly bugging her about when i can get a pair. well, mission accomplished. i walked away with a pair for an upcoming bday gift, as well as some for my very own.
her etsy site doesn't have a huge selection yet, but her title banner gives you a good idea about the styles she makes. check it out if you have a sec! (:
