I made these signs for my adult kids for Christmas a few years back, because I thought it would be something good for them to remember as they make their way in the world with their own families, but did not keep one for myself. Well my daughter did not want hers anymore, as she did not have a perfect place for it, and it does not exactly match her decor, so gave it back to me. I did not argue, and hung it in my dining room. I love this sentiment!
Here are the tags I made for the Halloween tag swap that is hosted by Kimberly at Art Joy Stuff. These are actually done with very purple glitter and ribbon and trims. Don't know why the coloring turned out so blue.
The back of the tags are more simple and display my blog address. we will send these to her and get a lovely little book of 6 different tags back! Can't wait!
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
