Here in New York, we had quite a bit of snow over the weekend. I decided to go through my craft supplies and see what I could do with them. A few months ago I started trolling around Etsy for digital images. Since I am not an artist, I thought I would use the images for some soap boxes I wanted to make. I went crazy! Anything that appealed to me wound up in the shopping cart whether it suited my original purpose or not. So yesterday, I decided to go through my images and supplies. I made some tags. Most of them will probably be used as give aways. I am all thumbs, have little patience, and measuring? Fugeddaboudit. (I learned that as a result of living in the Bronx.) Anyway I did wind up with a few things. I wonder what my former colleagues at work (a school) would think of the woman they used to call the Glitter Queen. I had tubs of it and used it often to decorate bulletin boards. Now life is much easier with Stickles.
I could not resist the Cat tags or the Scottie tags. I made some Scottie soap for Valentines day, and it was a hit, so I will use those tags with my Scottie soap orders. The cat tags were just too cute. They would make nice book marks.
The pink floral tags must be used as give aways. The designer forbids sale in any form. I won't be buying any more form that person. They look a little brighter in the picture than they really are, but they are pretty and make me think of spring.
Next you will see some French tags with a pale pink tapestry background. I was pleased with my borders on these. Thanks to Stickles once again. I also tried different colors of seam binding, but I am leaning toward the black for these.
So this is how I spent a snowy afternoon. It was lots of fun, and it made me forget that I was snowed in. Oh and I did do a little work on a design for the top of a soap box. I plan to adhere it to a papier mache box, so the brown and beige tones really look very nice on the box. I may add a ribbon. So as usual, I spent a lot of time creating things, but barely finished working on what I really needed to do.
Now if only I could figure out how to get pictures where I want them and get rid of empty spaces without deleting the text and pictures I want on this blog.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week. Spring is just around the corner!!!
