Show and Tell - A Bit of This and That

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years. I have been very busy working on projects and doing a bit of hunting and gathering. I have so many ideas and am chomping at the bit to get started on them. I have a mix of things to share this week, so here we go. . .

First up are some of the paper goodies we have been working on. Here is one of many sets Valentine tags we have made and listed this week. I just love working with pink/red and all the frilly trims. Such fun.Next up is a little altered collage wall hanging I made. I have several in the works and hope to get them up some time this week.

I also created a garland to hang up for Valentine's Day. I liked it so much I am making myself one to keep.We also put together some great new Scrap Pack kits for your own creations.

Last but not least, I took a few minutes to visit my favorite little antique store that is closing down and is practically giving things away. (I have been going almost weekly ) I found these little Napco busts and just couldn't pass them up. I don't know whether to keep them or sell them yet. I also found a very pretty doily and some vintage hankies for a project I am working on, and this pink dress inspiration board. It was just too cute. I am going to fix it up and list it.
Whew. . it has been a busy week. Thanks for visiting!

Your new tags and wall collage are great. I really love your designs. I went to one of my antique places last week to find the vendors all moving their stuff out. I got some great deals but I am so sad they are closing!
