I am finally, finally done with my holiday tag swags! I have been working on these things for the last three weeks non stop (thats why I haven't updated my blog). I have been making these things for the Holiday Craft Faire in Upland Saturday. Sadly, I only sold two. So if your interested in purchasing one email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I have plenty left, but the orders are coming in, and once they are gone they are so gone. I don't think I'll be doing them again next year. Each one takes 6 to 8 hours to complete, and there are 21 yards of ribbon and tulle on each swag. They are beautiful though. Maybe I'll feel better about them later, now I'm suffering from tag swag exhaustion. My friend Penny came up with the name "Tag Swag". We had a great view of the parade Saturday, and the girls were excited to see a parade so close up. My daughter Hannah pretty much played in the snow all day (no it doesn't snow in Upland, there was a snow machine). My oldest daughter Jordan shopped all day, and my other daughter Morgan hung with me in the booth. My friends Pat and Janelle shared the booth with me. I think Etsy may be a better way to go instead of craft fairs. If you need to see a better photo of the tag swags, send me an email and I will email you a better pic.
I live in California with my husband, and three daughters. I am an avid scrapbooker, and a Tattered Angels endorsed educator. I am also an educator for Elizabeth Craft Designs (yummy glitter). I teach scrapbooking classes at scrapbook and stamping stores in Southern California. I love using found objects in my scrapbooking, and ribbon, flowers, buttons, bling and of course Glimmer Mist and glitter make regular appearances on my scrapbook pages. My favorite subjects to photograph are my girls. I do something "scrappy" everyday.
