    I need to organize my writing because I just started a writing group. I love these earrings. My son just left for college, so they are symbolic to me.

  7. So detailed and unique! I would love to own these. :D Something I can't ever make time for is to sit down and write. I love to write but when I start, I can't stop and so I always forget or know I won't have enough time. So that's a downer, maybe these earring would put time more in perspective, a girl can dream! My email is mtaggart4852 @ gmail dot com! Thanks a latte'!

  10. I would love to move my office and craft room to a much bigger room, but that involves also painting, and getting all the moving done in one day so I don't have two messy rooms, instead of just one now

  28. I have been dying to reorganize my bookshelves, but every time I remember how badly I need to, I don't have the time! It's just not something I can do for a few minutes at a time, so it always gets put off over and over again.
