I'm baaack!! (with name tags)

Hello everyone! I have not blogged in almost 2 weeks so I'm gettin back on the proverbial horse today. I've been super busy, as I'm sure everyone is this time of year. On top of that our internet was out this whole past week. There are very few drawbacks to living in the boonies but the biggest one would have to be our internet situation (followed closely by mountain lions). We're not on satellite anymore - thank God! but this new internet provider we have consists of 3 guys & a tiny office. So when our internet goes out over the long holiday weekend there's no one answering the phones till Monday. Luckily it just miraculously came on about 3 hours ago. I was totally freakin out! I mean tomorrow is Cyber Monday for Pete's sake! And this chick is all about the online shopping! I haven't been in a mall in years & I will do everything within my power to keep it that way.

Plus......I'm a huge QVC & HSN junkie. I have one or the other streaming live on my laptop pretty much every waking hour. Oh yeah.... and I also have a little eBay addiction problem. The hubster has to cut me off occasionally when I get out of control, lol. But now I'm rambling so on to the project we go!.....

Some family friends of ours asked me to make these name tags to put on the front of their shoe baskets in their mud room (very Pottery Barn-esque I know). They still need to be mounted to a wood background but that's Vinny's department! Once they're mounted to the wood we will (he will) drill 2 holes in the top so we can use a ribbon or wire to attach them to the baskets. I love doing personalized stuff like this for people! It's so much fun figuring out a color scheme, size, font, etc. And it gives me a chance to reflect their individual personalities a little bit. So..... here are the pics......
Here is a quick summary of the elements I used:  all paper from DCWV & ColorbokCricut cartridges: Songbird, Gypsy Font, Feeling Groovy, Cuttin Up & Calligraphy. I used Aleene's Paper Glaze to give the names some dimension. The size of each tag is 6-1/4 x 3".

Thanks for visiting me & have a fabulous week!
