We had a birthday to attend last Monday and as we finished wrapping the gift I realized that I still had quite a few kiddie gift tags left but had nothing on hand for other occasions. To say I always like to be prepared is an understatement. It was a good thing that I had recently received a wonderful package.
It was an absolutely beautiful tag kit from the wonderful Wanda of The Rat’s Pajama’s. Yes, it was time to get creative. This is where I always pause because not only do I not have a craft room, I don’t even have a craft corner. When I decide to craft I normally set up shop in the kitchen area. I am the type of crafter that must pull out everything because who knows what will inspire creativity. So, my kitchen counters end up looking like this:
My daughter, who was attempting to make breakfast burritos yesterday said, “Mom, when I go away to school next year, maybe you can turn my bedroom into a craft space, because it is not working trying to cook and craft in this kitchen.” I replied, “I am already planning it on paper. ” (Smile)
So here is what came from my crafty attempts:
I like to challenge myself by only using leftover scraps when creating a tag.
I quite like my floral fairy tags.
“Red”, she said.
I also finished all of my crafts for the “I Remember Laura” blog~a~thon and art swap that need to be mailed today. I’ll save those pictures for Monday.
The good news is that I now have one empty bin that I can once again can begin filling up with scraps. Who says spring cleaning needs to be in the spring?
Have a great weekend.
