Oh My Goodness...

So, as you may have read before, I am going to the Art & Soul Retreat in Hampton, VA. I decided that since it was only a week or so away that I would look over some of the messages that were being posted about it, since I joined the Yahoo Group months ago. I have never checked any of these posting until yesterday. THAT is when I realized that these girls make swap items for each other!! OMG!! So, frantically I called Andrea and she eased my mind a little bit about not taking something if I didn't have time. Ugh. I hate to go empty handed, though. Especially if people were going to be giving me sweet handmade goodies. So, I racked my brain all night long for something easy to make but not cheesy. I can't very well make stained glass somethings for everyone, since I don't even have time to make them for my own shop! So, this is what I came up with. The theme is 'By the Sea' so my mermaid was very appropriate, I think. And I still managed to use some glass. Hopefully everyone will like them, I have never made tags before! If you are there & would like one, come find me!!



The beginning stages... water coloring manila folders to look like altered tags!

After the seam binding, yarn and glitter...

And the finished product! I am only making 24, hope that is enough. I still have to finish about 18 of them! I haven't decided if adding a trim on the bottom would be 'too much' or not. Is there ever such a thing as 'too much'!?!?!

Have a great day! ~Lisa
