Why cleaning up is a bad idea…


Argh!  Went to my crop yesterday and had to bail cause I had taken stuff out of my crop bag and forgotten so I had NO ATG gun, fewer blank tags than I thought, no sequins, and none of the little gold embellishments that are the focal point of each tag.  I managed to do what I could then came home with the intention of finishing them up.  Yeah, well, that was the PLAN.  Could I find the little pot of small round and star-shaped sequins ANYWHERE?  I could not.  I spent two hours scouring my office – my TIDY office – looking for them.  Just when I was ready to give up, and post anyway, I found them.  Of course now it is approaching dark  so  went ahead and snapped the shot.  I’ll sort out the rest of the sequins later.


I have to say I am really liking them – they are fairly simple but all so pretty – much prettier IRL than in the photo.


The gold embellies are plain wood on the back so some of the tags have them flipped around, just for the variety.

I also scored a really cute hat for DD for Xmas and decided to crochet her a scarf to match.  Found it at Craftsy, downloaded the pattern, and am 80% done 24 hours later.  Phew.

Cute, isn’t it?  Her’s is more moss-green thru the centre with rose colours for the ruffle.  I’ll see if I actually have enough of the yarn – its stuff I had already, perfect colour match for the hat. but not sure I have enough of the deep pink or lighter pink. We shall see….

  1. Scarf is is really nice. Glad you found the “gold” stash. Pretty Tags!

  2. That is the worst possible thing to have happen when cleaning up, I have resorted my room completely and believe me, I am on the hunt now everything has been moved around. I am glad that you found your sequin at last minute. Lovely scarf too, a bit frilly for me.
