I belong to a group of very talented women called Etsy Cottage Style. One of the things going on was a sign up to do a swap with the theme: fairies. I had done basket swaps in the past and so I felt this would be a fun swap to join. The way the basket swaps worked was, weave a basket, mail it to your swap buddy and receive a basket in return. Now, I have to tell you this was great fun. Altho I am not into fairies so to speak, I knew I could come up with something that would, hopefully make someone else happy. One of the rules was to use any medium you wanted as long as it contained the theme, fairies.
I had taken a couple of scrapbooking classes and so I thought I would use paper as my medium. I must tell you this was great fun. I had supplies on hand, but also needed to purchase a few things as well. This adventure is what led me to the world of tags, hanging tags, gift tags if you will. Now, this is a very fun item to make. I already had all the essentials at hand, just needed to get it together and start creating. I took pink cardstock and my oh so chic french stamps, some black ink and began my quest. I cut shapes, stamped and glued until my little heart was full. I could have gone on for days.....now what? I asked. What do I do with all of these stamps!? Why, sell them I said, and that is just what I intend to do. We shall see how this all turns out in the end. It just may be the end of my little career, or the beginning of some wild ride that has no end in site. Only the imagination knows for sure. Stay tuned for more of my little adventure as I progress.
