I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

I thought I would share with you a special order for gift tags I received on Friday.

Easter Gift Tags

Personalized Birthday Gift Tags

Valentine's Day Gift Tags

Hope your weekend was a great one.

Wishing you a wonderful day!

New Note:
Our blogs should be an extension of who we are, where we have been, and where we are going.
Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging...
family changes

To those that suffer during the year, please remember that your blog is your blog...your loyal readers will always visit should not feel as though you have to "inspire" all the time.  This responsibility can add too much stress to your life.  Keep sharing your stories and creations with us, but please remember you only need to say "hello world". 
Hoping you feel better soon!

Valentine Gift Tags

Give Away CLOSED.

My handmade gift tags are still selling...but I have a bunch in the studio.  If you would like to receive 2 gift tags for free please leave a comment.  I will be drawing two winning names for this give away on January 26th.  Please if you think they are "junk or trash" please do not leave a comment.  You know I have been harassed the past couple of weeks by 2 bloggers.  It has not been fun.

These would be great for your gift packages, wreaths, and Valentine vignettes.

Just a sample of some of the gift tags.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend dear friends!

Looking forward to Spring!

I am so ready for Spring!
It is cold here today...started out with rain/sleet, turned into snow with about 3 inches on ground now.  Snow should be ending early this evening.

I thought I would share with you some of my vintage finds I have found in the past several months.


I am working a fabric collage for The Winter Swap. 
Looking forward to something new to create.

For my followers at 'The Front Porch' there are several Victorian trading cards for your art work.  Please visit and take a peek.

Wishing everyone a wonderful and safe weekend!
