My very first blog hop - Spring Earrings!!!

OK, here it goes. I'm going to attempt to host my very first blog hop!!!!

I'm keeping the theme easy for this first one, it's Spring Earrings, and the date of the blog hop will be Monday April 25th, 2011. So for those of you who know how blog hops work, I hope you will forgive a short explanation for those who don't know how it works, and allow your attention to wander freely....

1) Sign Up: To sign up, simply comment on this thread. Make sure there's a link to your blog, either on your blogger profile or in your comment, so that I know where to send people when I make my little linky list. The deadline for signing up is midnight on Friday April 22, 2011.

2) Make your Earrings: Make a pair of earrings with a springtime theme. They can have an easter or passover theme, they can feature flowers or budding trees, they can just have nice springtime colors - whatever makes you think of springtime.

3) On April 25th, blog about your earrings and include the linky list (which I intend to post on my blog in the wee hours of Monday morning, so when you get up it should be there and ready for you to copy into your blog :))

If this works out, I intend to do more of them, and perhaps I'll include prizes of some sort; for the time being, this is my first one so I'm keeping it REALLY casual. I hope to see lots and lots of beady friends there!!!!!
