Thanksgiving tags

Made some Thanksgiving tags today, to tie up
some Thanksgiving treats. Kind of a quick
make, but it was a relief to get my hands
inky again, know what I mean?

If you click on the pics, they will enlarge
for you . . .

The vintage Thanksgiving postcard images are
from Altered Pages, and

the crown stamp is from Stampin' Up. First
time I'd used it--it's a keeper!

What are you thankful for today?

this song makes me laugh.

Plus, it kind of goes with the lovely little
hair arts below! C'mon, make dolphin noises,
you know you want to . . .

I need a kick in the creative bum--haven't
made anything arty for what seems like WAY
too long. Need to sort through some Altered
images, and check out the challenges
on Gingersnap Creations for a little inspiration.

C'mon, give me a link to something fun you've
made or seen lately. I REALLY like these
that Cameron made with sea glass:

Looks right for fall, yes?

But this is my favorite--gorgeous!

the minky project revealed.

Our niece requested a custom made car seat cover
for her new baby.

"No problem," I said.

Well, it really wasn't a problem, but it sure took
a lot longer than I thought it would!! The first
one is the practice cover, made with repurposed fabrics:

Kind of a fun vintage 70's print. It turned out
okay; the car seat strap holes don't look quite
as nice as I'd like, but I gotta say, the canopy
made me feel victorious.

Here's the custom made cover; the new mommy chose
the fabrics (the flower is removable):

This was the first time I'd worked with minky,
which, as the name suggests, is incredibly soft.
I kind of want some minky undies . . .

(Lola, every time I put a pin in my mouth, I
thought of you!!)

Here she is, modeling her new car seat
cover, on her first outing:
