Knitted Love - Care Tags

So, it's downright chilly outside...and we're experiencing a "nor'easter" which I had NEVER heard of until I moved here. For those of you that don't know what it is either, you can find out more HERE.

Anyway, there is almost no better way to spend time when you're stuck indoors than knitting (my dogs would disagree...they still believe there is NOTHING good about inside except TREATS).

But I digress.  This post is about all the knitted good I'm making...But you really can't SEE in the photo above.  It's another hat, similar to THIS ONE.  It's for another friend having a birthday this week.

I have to keep it sorta quiet, tho, cuz she'll find out before she gets it!  Anyway, here's a little care tag I made for her hat.  And it fits, given our present weather conditions!

I had so much fun creating this tag...It was a REAL mess, tho, cuz I painted and glittered, and painted some more, and glued...and YIKES...I let the paint DRY on my stamps, so that was a different challenge.

Anyway, the snowflake stamps that are Unity (SNOWFLAKE KISSES), and that photo frame...also Unity - from CAPTURED LIFE.

And I used two different Crinkle Ribbons from 3GIRLJAM - Spooky Bundle and Celebrations Bundle.

My favorite part, is what I wrote for the care instructions.  I dunno, it's probably not right to say, but I just LOVED it.

What do you think?  Agree?  I thought it was such fun.  The hat -- ALIVE.  It sounded to as if the little hat was actually knowingly involved in the process of keeping my friend warm!

OH, if you're hanging with me, that leads me to the best part of this post.  I noticed recently that I am >100 followers.  And I'd like to offer a little Thanks with some BLOG CANDY...


It'll be a mystery, but I'll let you give some input on what you'd like you like rubber?  How about designer paper?  Card stock?  Accessories? Paint?  Art supplies?  You name it in the comments, and I'll put a great supply of goods together.

And instead of just one winner...doesn't two sound better?  Thought so!

I'll announce the winners next Friday!

Um, LOVE the tags but I'm totally with your dogs - the best part about staying inside, besides crafting, is candy cane hershey kisses. :)

I need one of those hats here in cold Wisconsin. -5 this morning, but warmed up to 20 degrees this afternoon. We have a storm heading our way on Sunday and Monday, but it doesn't sound as tough as yours. My dogs totally agree with your dogs. Indoors is for sleeping and treats -- and bothering mom in her craft room. Love the colors in your tag. And the ribbon, of course ;)

Beautiful artwork. Hope got the paid off of the stamps. Yikes. I like rubber stamps, but anything crafty. :)

Gorgeous tag! Love the care directions on the back. :)
Two awesome tags! I learned to crochet a bit as a young girl, but I just could not get knitting. As for the the inside doggie here, I have visions of her turning into one big treat. Rubber or paper, I hoard them both!
Rebecca!!! This tag is AMAZING. Textures, colors... ahhh... beautiful. I'm just so impressed. How fun to have so many hobbies, your friend is going to love both. And blog candy... well I love it all so I will be back to check on you and congratulations on your 100th follower!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.

Each page has a little journal page insert:

Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....

Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
