Hello All -
I am itchin' to post the pics of my October Tags for the Year of Tags Swap for Silver Bella, but alas if I do it won't be a surprise!! DANG IT! I have a hard time having something for people and not being able to give it to them right away! That is why I don't shop too early for Christmas...gifts burn a hole in my pocket! I am nearly done with the Tags and then I will begin the covers for the finished Year books!
Ok, so I need to post about something else to take my mind off not sharing the tags....How about the new Japanese fabrics I purchased on etsy?!? I bought them from sonatine's shop. (watch the shipping rates, it's a little pricey of course coming from Japan!) My mom was jealous I received a package from Japan....maybe I will share with her ?!? Or maybe I will make a little quilt with some of them and have her quilt it for me.
Anyhoo - here they are.... I love the vintagey looking french one:
... and the japanese crazy candy one.
The flowers with the dots fabric reminded me of an old feedsack, which I love love love.
I think I may create a large yo yo to affix to my art journal. I laid out all the art journal supplies too tonight and just stared at them. Apparently the cover and paper I bought is 9x12, so it doesn't fit in a normal three hole punch....challenging....
Tomorrow after my Dad's doctors appointment I may try and stop at Dick Blicks to get some lightweight Chipboard so I can begin on my Recipe Swap for Silver Bella.
Is everyone as happy that tomorrow is Friday as I am??
