My January "Happy Homemaker Tag Swap" tag
I am participating in Bluebird Papercraft's Happy Homemaker Tag Swap- a year long tag swap! Each particpant chooses a theme for her tags, picks a line of paper to use for the year, and then creates 2 tags each month. One tag from each month will be given to her partner at the end of the year. I've chosen "vintage kids" as my theme. Shocker, right? Do I ever make anything that doesn't have a vintage kid on it? (Don't answer that.) What "happy homemaker" doesn't (or didn't) have a "vintage kid" around at some point, right? (I hope I didn't stretch the theme too far :)
So anyway, we're also suppose to show a picture of our "paper stash" for the swap. It was hard to narrow my paper choices down! It's a bit of a hodge-podge of a few different lines, but it all coordinates- 10 sheets in all. I hope my partner will like these!
My January tag is called "Snow Day". I used this image in a project for Christmas, but I didn't get enough of her yet! I just love her winter coat and hat!
Was there anything better than a Snow Day when you were young? I can remember listening to the radio, waiting and hoping to hear the name of my school announced in the school closings! Now let's fast forward to last night... my daughter Mary Grace put an orange in the freezer before she went to bed, put her pajamas on inside out, and slept with 2 spoons under her bed... all in hopes of getting a snow day today. (Her classmates and teachers put their heads together at school yesterday and came up with these tried and true methods of trying to bring about a snow day!) Know what? It worked! I never even woke her up- she's still sleeping in! We got 3-6 inches overnight. Some things never change!
