More Alice Tags.

If you participated in the Alice tag book
from Karla's Cottage, and you want a couple more for your book, then
this is for you! I really wanted to make some more tags. I just
got caught up in the whole thing, and liked my tag book so much I
wanted to add to it. So I made 12 more. Two different designs.
If you would like to make and send me two more, I will send you
two/each different and then I will be
happy as can be. One reason we
do all this stuff is to get to know other crafters and
bloggers with the same interests. I have enjoyed the blogging
world so much for this reason. Please respond,
with a comment on this post. I have this listed on both blogs,
and I only have 4 sets. I am keeping one and sending one set
to Karla who got this all started. She just worked so hard on about 80 books.

New Mommy advice book

My daughter had a couple of baby showers in
different towns. I made her this advice book,
which people attending, gave their advice on
little pieces of paper. I will put it all together
for her for a sweet remembrance and some
good advice.

Antique Store Stock

It is a little secret of mine and a close friend, that there is an antique shop, where you can find antique store stock materials for crafting. These items come from store stock from mostly Germany and a little bit from Japan, from the 1930's to 50's. I can't stand it, I really
like this stuff a lot. Especially the silhouettes. I can't wait to come up with a really cool craft
to use them on. Also the gold foil stars are really exciting. I also love the velvety leaves. Can't wait to go back and I will have to set aside some $$ for each time I am in the vicinity of this place. What a great find! P.S. This place is not online!

New Paper Crafts

I just made these medallions which are ready for a lovely craft, or maybe a scrapbook page or even a card. Don't know what yet, but I will probably post these in my Etsy shop. I then found these bobbin spools in my stash, and had seen one that was decorated, so I decided to try doing just that. They have patterned paper, pages from an old book made into flowers along with satin ribbon roses, clunny lace and tiny baskets and bird tags attached. The lovely bird tags came from Petite Paperie on Etsy.
