The thing I like most about blogging and crafting is the wonderful people you meet. Though for most of us, we will never meet the people face to face but we chat online and develop a true friendship. Through this, I've had the pleasure of "meeting" Rita. She is just a sweetheart of a person! She had seen a bag I did for a Magnolia-licious SWAP (see here) and asked if I would make one for her! Well I just jumped at this chance. She's the one that designed my blog and I owe her so much for this. All she asked was a tote large enough for a magazine, the color blue and a Tilda image. So I ran with that (pun alert - Running Tilda, I ran with that...OK, so maybe it's just my sense of humor)! And once I started this project, it just kept going....After I finished the bag, I just couldn't mail her the bag without a card AND a tag (that just wouldn't be right, now would it?) Off to make a card and a tag....I tried my hand at a Criss-Cross card and just fell in love with this style. Then while making the tag, I ran across Caroline's blog and saw her adorable Charm bracelet made with the shrinkable plastic. So I thought to myself, "Self, wouldn't this just be the cutest zipper pull ever!" And so I answered back "OMG, yes and I even have some of that Shrinky Dink paper that I have never used!" Voila -I included a zipper pull!!
Ok, I'm inserting a warning here - MANY PICTURES TO FOLLOW, PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Enough pictures, huh? Well Rita received the package today and loved it, phew! If you have a moment, tell me whatcha think!
