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!

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. I
