So, anyways, that is how I have been spending my summer break so far, I actually started working at HL in May so I was really really part time but now that break is here I am working not too shabby hrs. 3 days a week 8-5.
So, onto my crafting, I have a couple of swaps that I have been working on. One was a 4th. of July Shabby Chic #8 tag.
This is the tag that I made for a swap I hosted on "Swap-Bot" I had fun working on this one.Not only was I hosting the swap but my really sweet friend Shawnee was my partner.
For the string of flat back pearls that are on there in red,white & Blue, I actually didn't have any blue ones so I threw some white ones in a zip lock baggie and squirted some Adirondack alcohol ink in the color "sail boat blue" and let it sit for a while and Voila, red,white & "Blue" flat back pearls.
The flags that I used are ones that I got at HL. They are actually made for cupcakes but they were perfect for what I needed them for.
As for the scrabble letters, USA, I actually purchased 2 scrabble games at the flea market, 1 for $1.00 and 1 for 75¢ and all I wanted were the letters. Not too shabby for $1.75! oh how I love the flea market!
Well Friends, That is about all I have for now. I will however be back tomorrow night to share another swap that I am in before I send it off! Have a safe and wonderful Friday night!
