On Saturday my daughter asked me if I needed help with anything for my upcoming Sale; if so, she would come up from Kelowna, and stay overnight, helping me with whatever I needed done.
Of course I took her up on it - there's always lots to do and she is pretty capable at a lot of things.
She looked at me a little funny when I told her I wanted to make some of these...
little clay tags cut out with snowflake cookie cutters and stamped with snowflake stamps
a star tied up with icy blue seam binding
I love how the snowflakes look stamped in to the clay
we rolled them on linen, but I'd love to try it on the burlap shown above
we'll tie some on to the cookie packages she is going to do, using this cute red & white twine (although I do plan to look for red seambinding)
this little deer stamp makes a cute tag or ornament with a woodland feel, tied up with hand-dyed silk bias ribbon in shades of brown and green
Laura was a little skeptical at first - I have a lot of hair-brained ideas, which she has been subjected to now and again, but this quickly became a grown up version of making sugar cookies.
And so we played...
