Yep it's time to join in on the "Global Snooping" of craft rooms, an event grand enough to be a topic of discussion on BBC radio and hosted by Julia at Stamping Ground! I didn't get around to many desks this week and I am quite anxious about what I may have missed!
I still have Halloween bits on my desk though I have tried to hide them this week. I hit the Halloween sale bins at Michaels this afternoon, how could I resist black tinsel wreaths for $1.99, huge wired ribbon bows for .99? Thinking I will go back tomorrow for a few more wreaths...perfect for decorating the fence out front now that I have had time to think about it! As difficult as it is, I am moving past Halloween.
Upper left corner, a stack of small tags I have punched from old photos. The DH came home with two gigantic ledgers filled with 30 years of old family photos stapled into them. Yep stapled! There are only a few photos identified with names or dates but they are an Italian family in New York city. I especially love the Coney Island pics!. I am sure the story of how the albums landed in Victoria BC would be quite something. I will include some of these tags as swap gifts.
Upper right corner, one of the matchbox ornaments I am working on for a swap. The large tags (not quite finished) are part of what I'm putting together for our 4 girls, hoping to give them an early start on their gift wrapping stash. I have used my Cricut to cut a number of tags from patterned paper and I will go through the old holiday cards to see what could be punched for tags. Too precious and they don't get used. These images make me laugh every time I look! I'm calling that center one "Granny Mary Merry"...I may do a few holiday cards featuring her. The images are from "Digital Collage Sheets" on Etsy. Have a look at Michelle's offerings there, the image resolution is fantastic.
Have a great WOYWW! I hope all of our Sister crafters on the East coast have escaped severe damage and injury! Hope to visit more this next week!
