Deadline polymer earrings

Germany’s Anke Humpert brightens a gray winter Friday with these cheery red polymer umbrellas. With a second week deadline looming, she whipped up these earrings for her 52-week challenge. The pressure of a deadline can force out surprising creativity.

Determined to start the new year right, Anke’s been tackling the organization of her studio and you can vicariously enjoy her progress here. Have a cheery weekend.

                Seeing this studio does my heart good. I’m not the only one with too much stuff for a small space nor searching for the perfect containers. My space needs a similar reorganization project!

                          Your earrings are beautiful. Your have inspired me. I was not going to do a 52 week thing this year ( last year it was buttons ) but now I must do the earring thing too. Thank for the nudge.
