Who Else Wants Shrinky Dink Earrings?

 I made a bunch of pairs of shrinky dink earrings today! I was struck with the idea to make some for my shop this afternoon when I was attempting to take a nap. The nap wasn't very successful, but I did get some earrings made and listed today :)

 I have this Marilyn stamp and I have been wanting to use it, so I made these ones, inspired by her pink "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" dress in my favorite movie!

 Truth: I made these ones a long time ago and they've been sitting around my craft room... So, they're discounted, just for you.
Aaaaand, I had to make some Halloween ones. Honestly, I think Halloween is the funnest holiday to craft for. Pumpkins, witches, gargoyles, ghosts, black cats! I could go on...

Anyhoo, I hope you all don't mind the blatant Etsy linkage, but a crafty lady's gotta make some sweet moolah to spend on craft supplies and chocolate bonbons. I went to Michaels on Wednesday, and I bought ALL. THE. CLAY. Well, all the white polyclay...that was good quality...and on sale. I'm trying to sculpt up an inventory of Wicked Witch Bookmarks (buy!) so I'll be ready for the Christmas rush. I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

I love the shrinky-dink earings! You know, I didn't even know ovens came without little windows until I bought some shrinky dink sheets to wow my (then) 3 year old daughter with. Kinda a let down if you can't actually watch them shrink...

Great earrings! I love the pumpkin ones :0)

I'd like to know where you got those findings for the crystals! I've been searching and searching and I can't even come up with what they may be called! Help!

I'd really like to know what those findings are called to hook the crystals onto your shrinky dinks! I've been searching and searching and I can't even come up with what they may be called! Help? They look fabulous!

Kel, those are called headpins. They usually come pretty long, but for these little crystals, I had to crop the pin part down pretty far.
