Happy Monday!

Happy Monday Everyone! This past week has been a bit crazy but I did manage to get a few things made. The journals were for a special order. I had a request for a "denim" journal. I couldn't help myself and made two. She chose the one with the pink flower and white lace, so I will sell the other one. I started making some more tags to build up a bit of inventory. These are a few of them. I embellish both the front and back. I am charging 12.50 for a set of three. Is this too much? It does take some time to make them. I'm not sure. I have seen some people sell their tags really inexpensive, but I feel these are a bit more elaborate. Oh well, I can always lower them if I need to. My mother made the bird ones and I made the rest. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hi Carrie,

The demin journals are beautiful! I love the rose picture with butterfly one. Your mother creates beautiful tags too! I have never seen bird tags like hers too. Your handbag tags are very adorable too!
