Junk'le Bells

A picture of my 30 year old son with Buffy, our dog!

I just use left over ribbon for ties

They really brighten up packages, especially if you use more plain wrapping...

For awhile now, after Christmas , when I have those wonderful, unscheduled days left before school begins, I take down all my Christmas cards and make them into gift tags for the next year. Very relaxing, while allowing me some quite time to think about each person and the uplifting messages on each card.

So this is my entry for this month's Junk'le Bells. Jill wants to get ahead start on some crafts for Christmas, so she has challenged herself by making a fun party where we can

share what we are working on through the year. Great idea, Jill! I really don't make crafts to

sell full time, just occasionally for local charity craft shows, so this is just something that might

make cute tags for home use or pricing.

But, now, I say... let's bring on SPRING!

Don't forget my Priorlives Party on April 16th!

I love your tags! I really like the thought of sitting in the aftermath of Christmas and cutting up the cards and as you said, think about the one who sent it and the message inside. Thanks for linking up! (It's Jill, not Sue, but that's ok, I'm TERRIBLE with names!)

Your tags are just awesome. What a great idea. I would never have thought of that and so much more personal than all those store bought tags. Love it. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty
