Shopping Spree

Well, not really a shopping spree. But I did buy two sets of new earrings from Etsy. They are made from Starbuck's gift cards! How clever is that?!

Here is the original listing for one pair. And here they are on me.
I love that they aren't exactly the same, but they match since they are cut from the same card. Asymmetry is cool. They do flip around a bit as you wear them, but that's to be expected. And they still look cool from the back side.
They are made by Vanessa Weber. She is having a "buy one get one free" sale through the month of June. So, I also picked out these earrings. If you love funky, hand-made jewelry -- and coffee, you should check it out.

I can certainly imagine making some of my own in the future. Barnes and Noble usually has tons of interesting gift cards. Like I need an excuse to go the to bookstore...
