friday = misc.

UPDATE: sadly the host for this pdf has changed & in the process the file was lost plus I'm not able to find my original file so I can't make it available sorry...if I happen to find the file I'll update this post again with new info.

The vintage children’s illustrated tags seemed to be well received so I thought I would try to make another something for you. This is what I came up with:

(reminder - these are for personal use only. Please don't sell them or include them in a kit, or attached to an item that will be sold - thank you!}

The flat postcards should fit a A4 envelope, if you’re so inclined. Although they could also have a hole punched in a corner and be used naked.

The round tags are so if you need a to/from tag as well as a card, you will have a matching set.

Let me know what you think about the postcard format. I was going to do a folded card but then I got all stressed-out about it and flat just seemed easier all the way around.

Last time, with the tags, I didn’t tell you that I use a heavyweight, matte paper to print stuff like this out on.

But that’s not all for today, here are some links for things I thought were interesting:

I love the embellishments on The Constant Gatherer’s wreaths & this & this stuff she featured. She finds really cool stuff so I check out her blog often, so should you!

creature comforts finds such interesting, inspiring things so I check her out often as well! {really it is amazing I get anything done…}

This sweet embroidery by confessions of a blueberry bandit, who also makes adorable softies

Now lets see if I can get this right… I found this cool flickr group via this post by alilovescurtis which led me to this post by poppytalk. Isn’t the internet wonderful?!

inspireco’s studio is so pretty!

Sweet bunny & butterflies at house on hill road

I want one of these d├ęcor-a-board birds BAD!

my paper crane’s wreath is an awesome way to herald the beginning of spring! {Click on blog at the top & then go to the post for Feb. 28th} She also does embroidery {check out Feb. 21st}, makes softies & cooks fun stuff…

AND – if you love Vogart embroidery transfer patterns then you will find this newly created database invaluable & you should send an email to floresita to thank her, because she is awesome!

Right now I don’t have plans to be back here this weekend. But you never know if I will find something online or at the thrift store that I need to share asap…

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sweetcheese, they are vintage, thrifted fabrics & since I don't sew, at least I can use them for something!
