Ears to You Blog Hop



Earrings are sooo not my forte.  I can pull out all the needed ingredients (properly measured of course), mix everything as directed, and voila.  Except the lightening never hits.  Yeah not my forte.

So of course I just had to sign up when Amy of Copper Diem decided to put on a blog hop that's all about earrings.  Especially when you consider that all the earrings will be going to charity!  Ears To You provides earrings to girls and women during chemotherapy.  And everyone knows how a new pair of earrings can brighten ones' day.

Did I mention that Amy decided to toss in a twist?  The...well you might call it a theme...is to design for tweens and teens.  Now this is an age group that I really don't have anything to do with.  Yes, I have stepsons but the operative word is sons.  So I am not to familiar with what they are wearing and I was derelict in my research duties.  So I guessed.  Someone please tell me how far off I am.










Will someone please let me know how far off I am.  And now comes the best part.  Be sure to check out the gorgeous earrings that everyone else made.  Just be sure to click here.

  1. I don't know if you're 'far off' or not. Teen & tween tends to shift so fast.. I DO know that bright vibrant colours are definitely in for both sexes... the number of neon shoes, hats and backpacks I see every day attest to that lol. While parents might cringe at long dangly earrings, tween especially seem to love them, so I think you're good on that front :) Teens are more individual and fluid, I've found. I usually make earrings for the girls at work over christmas, and the teen tastes are always varied colour and style wise, but length seems to run in cycles. One year everyone wants short, the next they want long. I don't think you have anything to worry about though, I think these will be a hit :)

  2. my girls are in that age bracket and i still cannot figure out what a teen/tween would wear! but i'd say you nailed it (and would have never known that earrings were not your thing had you not said it)! that second to last pair~the lavender/purple ones~are fantastic!!!

  6. I think long earrings are still very popular! I can see those ones with chain looking great with a prom dress or a pair of jeans.

  8. I don't have any teens or tweens around to ask, but they look great to me! They seem "young" and cheerful and full of the unexpected!
