Keeping Busy ~

What creative things have you all been up to lately?
I have been making hand stamped muslin ribbon
for my booth at the antique store.
I have been stamping until I can stamp no more~
...and also printing and cutting out the cards
to put the ribbon on ~ my gorgeous new blessed banner on my antique mirror. can you believe I got this mirror for 50 cents at a garage sale several years ago? It was kinda falling apart and I knew my hubby could fix it. I love it~ can't believe I haven't painted it white yet though Let me know what you have been up to in the creativity department ~ Blessings~

I can't believe you paid 50 cents for that mirror also. What have I been up to creatively, actually I've been quite busy, but my camera died and I haven't been able to share with anyone. How frustrating, I though it was just batteries but it is more. So... Love your ribbons. are the in your etsy as well.

This is a twilight zone moment for me Sandi, beacaue I was stamping muslin ribbon today too. It is ribbon I am just using myself to tie on a little pail with holly in it and to put on some bottles of greens. I am stamping some also to wrap around some gifts I am giving this year. Weird huh? Then I covered some tin stars with tea stained sheet music...and then I went shopping!
Hugs,
June

Dear Sandi, I'm so sorry that I haven't visited you sooner! Your WW-post i wonderful, and I also love your ribbons, postcards and the "blessed-mirror" (I really cannot believe the price! What a gift!)
I also have been very busy - I have to prepare stuff for a Chirtmas-marked which starts next Friday (collages, match-boxes, picture-frames ... in a very nostalgic look. I'm sure you would like it, but it's in Vienna, Austria, so it is a bit too far away for you ;-))
Hugs, Traude

The handprinted ribbon is beautiful and the cards on which you've wrapped them just gorgeous! Certainly a lot of work but it must feel so wonderful to know that you've created something of beauty that others will enjoy! That mirror for .50 cents was a true find! Your BLESSED garland is perfect hanging there. Best wishes for your weekend, :) Tammy
