More sneaky peeks...

These tags are ready for their trip into NYC tomorrow, when I take them to their new home, Tinsel Trading Company, just in time for Valentine's Day.We'll be making these at my upcoming workshop.  I used one of my favorite Savvy Stamps for the great words, "bee mine".  I showed Martha how to make these on her show last February, but we'll be using silver glass glitter and red card stock, too. Oh, how I love bumblebees!

We're also making trinket/candy boxes.  I have glittered and papered these boxes inside and out and they are now ready for some fantastic TT trims. I love that part, the embellishing...Yes, I live for glitter, but rummaging thru TT's fantastic array of embellishments is more fun than...than...just about anything I can think of!  Don't know yet what I'll find, but I know it will be wonderful. I think a great big flower will look swell on top, and of course, I'll glitter it.  And I'll probably add a bumblebee on a wire on top, who will keep watch over the box's precious cargo.
If you'd like to do this yourself,  just sign up here for the workshop on Feb 9th.  I guarantee you'll have a glittery blast!

Suh-weeeeet!

I LOVE the tags and boxes. Oh how I wish I could be at TT for this one. Did you make the box itself or is it prefab? I was looking for a heart shaped box to embellish and I'm not finding much. I found a nice one in the Martha Stewart line at Michael's but it was $20! I bit to rich for my blood though I know we have to support our girl (she gets lots of my $ in other forms of craft supplies and magazines!).
Hugs,
Karla

I found you through my friend Michelle's blog.
I think you would like to see my boxes I have been working on. It's very funny, because I hadn't seen yours before. Check my blog sometime.

Hi Laurie!
Just got caught up with your blog...I'm a bit behind, too. Sorry that thingie I wanted to do with you didn't materialize, but I was getting to the point with my blog that it was encroaching on my family time, and I wasn't about to let that happen at Christmas time!

I would love to gear something up for Easter, I will email you later with the particulars. I sooo love those heavenly valentines...it has never been my holiday, but a tree done up with glittered valentines actually intrigues me...

Yes, you have had an incredibly successful year, and you have worked hard doing so. I am so excited about your book and would love to help spread the word when it comes out! Reserve me a copy!!

Happy New Year to you and your family!
Linda
xoxo
