Happy Spring!!
(well almost)These are some tags I made for a Spring/Easter mini tag book swap. They were so much fun to make. I am so glad I was able to participate in this swap and I will post pictures of the tags I recieve when I get them. (Can't wait!!!)
The lovely Elyse wanted to know if I could make some earrings in blue. I wasn't sure which color she preferred so I made several. They are all available at my Etsy store. Don't worry I have enough to make another pair when Elyse picks the ones she wants.
This adorable little Vintage straw chick (made in Italy) will be available in my etsy store soon.
So will this vintage pink chick. He's carrying flowers. How sweet!!
These eggs will also be available at some point today. They are made with German paper mache eggs, dresden trim, paper/velvet millinery flowers, and lots of glitter. They open up and are perfect for small gifts. I put a small base on the bottom so that they wouldn't fall over.
Oh, and look at the adorable goodies I got from Elyse. She is so sweet and creative. I absolutely love her stuff.
Little league is in full swing and boy are we busy. My husband is manager of two teams, one of them is "single A" and one is "double A". He absolutely loves it but boy does it make us busy. This week alone we have practice on Monday, Game on Wednesday, Game on Friday, and 2 games on Saturday. Thankfully our season is only 3 months long. In the meantime I'm going to have to find a better balance between baseball and creating. My creative time has been eglected.
I got something adorable at Target two days ago and can't wait to take pictures and show you.
Talk to you soon,
Cari
