If you’re like me and forgot to buy gift tags but are so over Christmas shopping that you don’t want to step foot into another store to pick some up, this is your opportunity to recycle some of those boxes into gift tags.
To all of my art, there’s a story. This is the story behind my latest Enamel Pin, “Take me to the Pines”. When I was 11 my step-dad, Jim, went on a trip to North Carolina. At the time we were living in New Britain, Connecticut. Connecticut was where I was born, where my whole family lived and a place I never imagined I would leave.
Once again another holiday has totally snuck up on me! With four kids I should probably be all over it with a Halloween Advent calendar, baking spooky cookies and sewing up Halloween costumes. My kids haven’t had a single pumpkin spiced anything yet and neither have I, although I did put some cinnamon in my coffee the other morning. That’s a start right? BUT now that I’ve realized I’ve only got 15 days until Halloween, the hourglass has flipped and I’ve got to make the most of it before we move on to the turkeys!
