It is the end of a busy week and very busy term of Homeschooling my two prescious girls! How wonderful and blessed I am that in between all the school work and daily grind of life (housework, shopping, extra murals and the list goes on..) I get to catch snippets of time to ....CREATE!

My project as we head into the weekend and July school holidays is to make new stock of Teeny Tiny gift tags. I have a few new gorgeous colours of cotton thread for the little crochet flowers and hearts. I am trying a new brand of yarn which is a combination of cotton and bamboo. It is also all natural and hand dyed. The hand dyed colours are so beautiful! The name of it is Eco- Fusion and their website is if you want to check it out. I purchased my stock from a local supplier.

I found loads of cute buttons which I will add to the flowers and hearts and I just need to source some new ribbon as my ribbon stock is low.

I am adding  more birds to the watercolour tags but they will all be South African little birds!

I have to mention the big "green" Cuttlebug in the picture. My husband gave it to me for my birthday last year! It has been the most wonderful gift! All the pretty embossed tags are all made using the Cuttlebug.

My blog is just 2 weeks old and I am loving every minute of sharing my art/craft ideas and designs. I have connected and made new friends overseas and caugh tup with old friends from school! I feel so blessed!

Have a wonderful peaceful weekend! Happy CREATing!
