R&R and Crafty Time

Snuggling with my little girly dog is like taking vitamins. 
We are both feeling better and are ready to get back to things!
Plus, life goes on and we don't have much of a choice.

I've been on an ATC kick because I want to have a few ATC workshops so we can get the Studio swaps underway. But first:

Plant Marker time!
or "Plant Bling" is how I like to think of it.

There was a swap listed that was for plant markers with the suggestion of making them from paint sticks.
That sounded waaaaay to rustic for me but I remembered the steel markers that I had "the man" laser cut for me but I had never used. A little paint, some sanding, a rubber stamp and brown pigment dye and finally some old and broken vintage jewelry and "poof".  Plant (marker) Bling! Fairly fun and easy project. I hope my swap partner likes it.

Then, the ATC's:

Then a tag because I needed to send off a Chunky Tag. This one is muslin sewn to a manilla tag then embellished.

Forgot to take pictures of the upcycled charms. 
Will have to add them next time.
