Fun and Productive day at gotta scrap!



We were busy all day today doing all kinds of fun things . . . D’Uan was working on her Day 2 Tim Holtz Christmas tag, getting it ready to post. Jennifer was adding new product to our online store all day long and I was getting ready to video D’Uan while trying to figure out what project I wanted to do first for our own Etsy store. I must say it’s fun having so many options and just the fact that it will be something vintage makes me very happy! I was thinking about decorating old frosted perfume bottles with vintage lace, old velvet flowers and leaves and embellishments or covering boxes using the same type items . . . I’ll wait until tomorrow now to decide! I picked up over the weekend a collar and cuff box with decorative hardware on top of the box that houses cuff links (from the early 1800’s) that is in need of recovering, so if I have just the right fabric, that may just be what I do first!
D’Uan, of course, will produce her third Christmas tag which I will again video – she will do this twelve days in a row, so her work is cut out for her (without as many options as me!). The only thing I contribute to the tag is that I get the privilege of selecting the ribbons and fibers.
Just in case you get snowed in on Friday, plan in advance to be stocked up with plenty of supplies for those Christmas projects – remember that we deliver (or ship) on Tuesdays and Thursdays, in which case you will be set for Friday if you are local! The weathermen are predicting that our area will receive up to two inches of snow, so join us in lighting those fireplaces, putting on the apple cider and Christmas music and create some memorable keepsakes – we will be doing the same. Take pictures and let us see your masterpieces. Stay warm! Here is our link to view the video we made today of tag #2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjJx0Gii014

Noooo! Don't say that with the snow. He's supposed to be taking me to Canton! *dies*

Have fun on your selections. :)
