                              I'm Committed to My First Tag Swap

Yes, I agreed to Join in on Andrea of Vintage Bella Studios
Vintage Easter Theme Tag Swap. Now really keep in mind 
this is a first for me. I sure have seen many of these swaps 
going on in Blogland, but I have observed from the sidelines.
Let's hope I didn't get myself in over my head LOL (;

Sometimes when I need to create something with a deadline
I freeze up. And that is sorta what happened here.  When I am
creating things for my Shop I just work on my own timeline and
also I add and tweak my creation as I go! But making 21 of the
same thing, yet keeping that look and style I love is a challenge
for me. Last night I just started to get out the glue and garland
and Create. 

I am also busy working on some "New" Spring Posy Pockets, these are just a little bit larger in size, so it gives me more surface to embellish. I love adding lot's of detail so each time it arrives to it's new owner there is always a welcomed surprise to discover. Thanks for stopping by today, tomorrow I will be painting some more
Jello Molds for Mini Vintage Baskets. I  have made a promise to share the steps along the way. OXOX

Hi Diane, I happened to notice I had a new follower and decided to take a peek. I am so glad I did. I love love love your creative spirit. Your tags and nut cups are so adorable. I had to go over to your etsy shop and add both your shops plus your daughters to my favorites.

I also love how you washed those beautiful oval plates. I'll have to watch your shop for them.

Have a wonderful weekend. hugs, Ellen

Hi Diane, I am so looking forward to receiving my spring pocket that I ordered. Your work is amazing! I didn't know that you read my stories! Thank you so much! I wanted to let you know that Uncle Bob was never ever a jerk, he was a lawyer! His keeping those trust funds in tact will have importance in a future story! He also struggled with paranoid schizophrenia. I am very protective of this Uncle I have lost so recently. Elizabeth
