Good Intentions...


Well, I had intended to be a much better blogger this past week, but the week slipped away much too quickly.  I'll give it another shot this week. ;) 
Vintage-look Christmas Tags 

Today I thought I 'd share the project that has consumed every free minute I've had for the past 2+ weeks.  My sister asked that I make some holiday themed tags for her and I was happy to take on the job.  Now, I must admit that I have not made many tags in the past, so I thought I'd surf the net for some ideas.  Wow, did I see some beautiful creations!  There was one tag in particular however, that really caught my eye.  It was from the following gorgeous tag that I borrowed the tag layout.
Do you recognize these tags?  I would love to credit the talented crafter who created these, but I saved only the photo, neglecting to take note of the site address from which they were found.  Have you ever found a site you loved thinking you would stop by again?  Easier said than done, I'm afraid if you haven't saved the address. :(  I'm chalking this one up as a lesson learned.

Enjoy the rest of the week...hoping to back with another post soon!
