Fairy Children Inspiration!

Well it is long overdue, as my involvement with the Clark Co. fair has caused me to put this so cute post off.  Last week or so, I recieved my 6 tags from the Fairy Children tag swap, hosted by JoAnne at Vintage dragonfly.
It was great fun to see where they came from.  All but one came from people I have swapped with before.  Here are the tags I recieved.  They are all so exquizitely made and envoke the feeling of spring so well! Just beautiful!
This beauty is so layered and just gets me really excited.  It was made by the talented hands of Mercedes Scott of
 This sweet one was made by Kimberly Laws at ( have several of her things scattered around my craft studio)
 This pretty one was the work of the talented Jo West of
 This cool one came from Sandi McLean at  I love the textures she used!
This very lovely one comes from Jess Moore of

And this is how I have them displayed in my craft studio, so I can see them all the time.  I bought this antique carpenter's ruler from Kimberly's Etsy shop last year and unfolded it to hang my favorite tags on.  A few of the tags here are from previously.

Now I will show you the tags that I made for the swap.  I had fun doing them up.  It is funny how it just evolves, and when you start putting them together, you are sure what you are going to do, but one thing leads to another.  I was so happy with the color palatte on these.

and if that wasn't enough fairy stuff, I just had to play around a bit more and came up with this fun little poster.  It will hang in the craft studio too.

I hope that everyone is having a most wonderful April and SPRING!

Oh Michele, your tags are beautiful, love the colors you used. All of the ones sent to you are so unique too. I also love the way you displayed them, cute idea. I see I've some catching up to do, didn't realize I was so far behind in my visits. Have a great week.

I love the colors you used on your tags, Michele! I am excited to be getting to meet Mercedes at Karla's in June -- whee! I'm working a swap right now that she's hosting for the event.

Michele, your way of displaying tags is genius! I also love surrounding myself with beauties made by friends.... it's such fun to see everyone's interpretation of the various themes. JoAnne's swaps are always fun; but this one was extra special; everyone who participated created an amazing little piece of art. Your tag was divine! I am lucky to have received one in my returns - yay yay Regards, Mercedes

Wow! What beauties!!! I wish I could have participated, but I was packing up my craft room at the time... Hopefully soon I'll be moved into a new space and create, create, create!
