Hey there! It's me. The chic who can't get away from using, twine, cardboard, stamps and book pages. I consider these things my trademark materials, but really, even I am bored with my look. Unfortunately, this year with all the other changes that have been going on, I am forced to stick to my true blue crafting self but I promise(with all my heart) next year I will have a new look.
I love giving gift cards, probably because I love to get them. The problem is they don't exactly require a lot of thought on presentation, which is one of my favorite parts to giving a gift. The answer for me is tags and ribbon...yep,always tags and ribbon. After tearing up one of my most beloved books of poetry(by Brian Andres) with a previous project, I decided I needed to use as much of as I can. He writes beautiful whimsical poems that bring me to tears. If you knew my niece, you would know how appropriate this poem is for her.
Oh cardboard how I love thee.
Chalking the edges with this little stamp pad is a must
This set of stamps is worn out. Boy have they brought me lots of joy.
Adding a ornament makes it a little more special. These are from Pottery Barn.
I think they will look pretty under the tree.
