A Pair of Gift Tags

These are a couple of tags that I made over the weekend to use up some extra stars that I had left over from other projects.  I am entering them in the Moxie Fab World Gift Tag Challenge.  These challenges are so much fun - I'm having a great time looking at all the pretty things that everyone creates. 

In other news, the art teacher at my school asked to borrow my art journal to teach her students about the process (she doesn't actually keep one herself).  I was really flattered and nervous because she's a trained artist and I was worried about what she would think about my pages. Also, I was worried about the kids seeing it AT ALL because it's personal.  It seemed smarter to keep it to myself, but in the end I just stapled up the really private pages and handed it over.  I hope I made the right decision.  You're supposed to embrace your fears, right?  And fear of criticism is definitely one of mine.  It's part of the reason why I started this blog.  ;)

Moxie Fab World

So, I'm probably the only paper crafter that didn't know about the site Moxie Fab World. I discovered it not too long ago and I love the inspirational posts and the challenge opportunities.  I'm going to enter my little card set into this challenge: Card Sets.

***UPDATE*** Last night I realized that I did not include a gift box when I entered the Card Set Challenge. It's funny because I'm always telling my students to read the directions carefully, and then I go ahead and do the exact opposite. :)

A New Card Set (and a new blog)

I made this card for the kids to thank them for Teacher Appreciation gifts, but this one came out so well that I decided to make it into a set for a friend. Maybe I should have stamped the sentiment instead of hand-writing it?
