hello and welcome to another blog post.

how has your weekend been? mine has been pretty productive. how about a list? i love those.

  • i lugged out the christmas décor and decorated my house.. we are getting our tree tomorrow after work, can’t wait!
  • i stayed accountable to dedicated december and worked out friday, saturday, and today. did you complete a workout? make sure you log it here. also, i will be posting all my workouts in december on the dedictaed december page—in case you want to see what my moves are.
  • i baked cookies.. again! yes. again. this time chocolate chip. and i have butter sitting out waiting for me to make another batch after the packers game. i cannot be stopped.
  • i wrapped almost all of my christmas gifts! and almost all of my christmas shopping is D-O-N-E. yippee!

if YOUR christmas shopping isn’t done yet, let me give you a really great gift idea.

peach treats: art for your ears!

meef tif, the crafty lady behind peach treats.

fun fact: tif and i were friends in high school! i hadn’t seen her in years and YEARS, then i saw some of her amazing jewelry on facebook and it didn’t take long to put two and two together that the tif behind peach treats was the same tif from high school. small world!

anyway, tif makes jewelry BY HAND from polymer clay.

image

she makes earrings for both gauged ears and for regular pierced ears.  if you aren’t sure what i mean by “gauged ears”—that is when the earring hole is stretched.  both marshall and i have gauged ears.

i have had gauged ears for over a decade, but the selection of unique earrings was always pretty scarce.  because i couldn’t wear “regular” earrings, i was always missing out on wearing fun, colorful jewelry in my ears.  peach treats changed all that!

i am slightly obsessed with all the designs and i have purchased several pairs of earrings.  you have probably seen me wearing peach treats earrings in photos i have posted here on the blog…

here’s a closer look of the two different pairs i am wearing above…

something that is really awesome and impressive is that tif was able to take a pair of regular owl earrings that heather sent me and turn them into gauged earrings so i could wear them!

image

like i mentioned earlier, peach treats are NOT just for gauged lobes—tif specializes in making “fakers”—which look identical to her gauged creations but are split in two and attach together with a standard size earring post. so clever!

imageimage

any peach treats earrings can be made for gauged lobes or as fakers. tif’s talent and creativity is out of this world.  look how beautiful these earrings are:

if you live here locally in utah, you can always catch peach treats at the many different markets, conventions, and craft fairs.

image

however, peach treats has an online shop on etsy. there are pages and pages of earrings listed in her store. you can also custom order anything you want—any style, any color, any size.. custom made just for you.

a few of the reasons peach treats products make a great christmas gift:

  • quality handmade jewelry
  • unique, original gift idea
  • supports the small business economy
  • each pair is custom made to your liking

the “fakers” are awesome! anything with “super spirals” or esmerelda style are beautiful – i dig all the curving details

Jeanne December 5, 2011 at 2:52 pm

The ivory music note is gorgeous!

Christin@purplebirdblog December 5, 2011 at 3:26 pm

I am totally in love with the mulberry glitter fakers!!!

I love the mint disco fakers! So glad you shared her earings. I will definately be buying some.

Dani December 5, 2011 at 6:23 pm

love the golden goddess fakers! all the turquoise ones are beautiful, makes me want to gauge my ears (a little bit)

Trisha December 5, 2011 at 6:44 pm

i love any of the “fakers”…especially animal print and bright colors!

Ellie December 5, 2011 at 7:39 pm

I love the animal print fakers! What a genius idea.

The Grecian Gauged Earrings look awesome!

Arwen December 6, 2011 at 7:59 am

I am in love with the teal/green octopi ones. I’d have to get the “faker” version but even if I don’t win, those things will be mine!

Ashley December 6, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Ooooo I love the copper/blue ones!

Crystal December 6, 2011 at 5:50 pm

They are all so adorable! I have always taken notice of your earrings in your posts and how cute they are, but my ears aren’t gauged and I never imagined that I could fake it!! How awesome. I loveeee the Tigress earrings. They are amazing!

Mackenzie Ryan December 6, 2011 at 7:35 pm

These earrings are amazing! I’d like the Ivory Music Note Gauged Earrings! SO beautiful!

Ashley December 7, 2011 at 1:53 am

Love love love the faker earrings by Peach Treats!Especially enamoured with the glitter gold spirals,faux gauge hot pink zebra hoops,mermaid spirals and many many more…

Asuma December 7, 2011 at 5:37 am

These earrings for gauged earlobes look amazing! The one thing that caught my eye was how they form beautiful curves and waves, and the way the colours blend so naturally in some of the marble coloured ones inspired me. I usually see plain black earrings for gauged lobes, so Peach Treats was really eye-opening to me. I only have normal earring holes, but it made me want to get the faker ones!!! I’m glad I got to know about Peach Treats, helps me expand my fashion horizons :)

Tanya Jay December 7, 2011 at 7:59 am

I love the copper and blue wire s hooks
And the sea maiden ones.
I love them all lol think I need to do some shopping! She does a great job. I love the fakers.
When I had to join the business world I removed my gauged earrings and let my holes grow in so it will be fun to fake it once in a while!

Julie December 7, 2011 at 8:20 am

they are all so beautiful and unique! i love the bronze slither gauged – so hard to pick just one!!

brandi December 7, 2011 at 8:26 am

i love the purple corkscrew fakers – so pretty! and these kinda make me wish i still had my ears gauged :(

Solducky December 7, 2011 at 1:14 pm

The fakers are amazing! All of them are though. I am loving the Faux Granite Foxtails.

I don’t really wear big earrings but I really think these are awesome. I love the blue ones for my daughter – they will match her eyes.

LG December 18, 2011 at 9:19 pm

Well, thanks a lot. Since you posted this, I can’t stop thinking about these earrings. Now I know where some of my birthday $$ is going…

Melanie February 4, 2012 at 8:18 pm

Hi! I just discovered your blog about a week ago (from Get Off My Internets, actually), and absolutely love it! It’s nice to see someone be so real…it’s motivating, actually. Anyway, I was wondering if you stretched your own ears? I’m wanting to do it and was wondering how you had it done?

Melanie

Janetha February 6, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Hey Melanie! Thanks for heading on over and checking out my blog. Yep I stretched my own–took about 4 years to go from a regular hole to my gauge now, which is a 0. I just gradually went bigger and bigger using things like needles and taper earrings to stretch. I went slow and steady, so it wasn’t too bad at all. I know you can have it done quicker, but I am a wuss and don’t like pain ;) Best of luck with your hole stretchin, ha! xoxo
