A Pretty Project

How cute are these? A short time before this photo was taken, these earrings were comprised of plain clear crystals.

I was inspired by this DIY - Colorblock Necklace project and coerced (it didn't actually take much coercing) a friend into playing along with me (yes, we picked up our earrings at Forever 21 too). It was quick and easy to paint our earrings with nail polish, and the only disappointing part about the project was that we each had only picked up one set of earrings to play with.

Selling Religion Like Cookies

Last week two men with softly colored collared shirts ("friendly, yet serious!") strode up to our front door clutching pamphlets. I did what any sane person would do. I hid.

What? You're a mature adult and would have answered the door? Good for you.

Call me crazy, but I'm not a big fan of discussing my religious/spiritual beliefs with strangers. It's personal, you know? And I don't like being told that unless I change them, I'll be headed to a place I don't believe exists.

After they left, I briefly flipped through the handout, and fixated on the multiple choice question "Which Jesus is the correct Jesus?" I was instantly disappointed that I hadn't answered the door and busted out my best Will Ferrell impression.

"Dear Tiny Infant Jesus.... Look, I like the Christmas Jesus best... When you say grace you can say it to Grown-Up Jesus, or Teenage Jesus, or Bearded Jesus or whoever you want."
