Swapping stuff...

I have joined a few crafty places.
I am now into altered crafts
and to get myself inspired
I joined these places:
and

They have all kind of fun swaps for 
all your craft ideas.

What got me into this was Tee from

I got to do my first tag swap with Tee.
Here is the lovely tag that Tee sent me:




and the tag I made for her. Mind you,
my budget is like zero dollars to do this artwork,
so I went to my old box of sewing things and wrapping paper and stuff and came up with this:

I had purple lace and peach lace so it wasn't exactly fall colors
but I used what I had.
I sure had fun with it!


I cut up a gift bag that I had from a birthday gift
I got back in 2000. I knew I saved that bag
for a reason. LOL


I had fun!
I can't wait to do more!

Y'all take care now!

  1. Hi Momma! Sue, from It's A Very Cherry World here! You made a wonderful tag. That's how I started, with just stuff I had on hand. You had asked about the perpetual calendar on my post today (Sunday). No, I did not make it. I got it a few years ago from Gardeners Supply Company, and I love it!

      I will have to keep my eyes open for a calendar like that.
      Take care and thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi, Kimma! For zero budget, that is an awesome tag. I like using things I have already, not necessarily go out to buy new things (I may have to sometimes, but I like using what I have). You did a fantastic job on that tag. To me what you think about and use means you are putting 'thought' into it. Some just get things put together and put no thought, yours comes from within and looks like it was crafted with love. Looking forward to crafting w/you at CCL. {{hugs}}

    1. Ahhh, how kind of you. I have since been able to purchase a few things, (the hubby is a doll). But I still will use what I can outta the old stuff.
      Thanks for the encouraging words!
      Look forward to CCL with you and the others.
      You picture of you doing your craft is inspiring to me.
      *smiles!
