I cannot tell a lie

I didn't take these photographs.....I haven't tried to get any photos off of my camera yet. My husband took these photos. I did make all the crafty stuff. :) The background is a vintage bed sheet....it is the prettiest sheet I have ever seen and I got it for a quarter. It does have a hole and I have cut up part of it. It is my new background for my Etsy shop......I figured jammies and a sheet would go well together. :) My "Little Tokens of Love" Swap partner said some really nice things about some yo-yos I sent her.....about my stitching.....Clover yo-yo maker.....yo-yo maker's dream. I love mine. There is no way with my shaky hands could I ever get stitches that good. :) The picture in this post is of some stuff I did while Clark was away. More potato stamping. I made these three canvases and a whole load of tags. It was so much fun. I always stick with food images (cupcakes, ice cream cones). I'm working on making styrofoam mushrooms now. I bought a vintage one from SadieLouWho at Lollishops....my first Lollishops purchase and I loved it so much...I want to figure out how to make some. I forgot what a bitch crepe paper can be.....I got some Martha crepe paper on clearance at Michaels...such pretty colors. :) I'm also working on a bunch of trim tags for my shop. I realized I've got way too many trims for one girl to have in her house (oh, please...liar...you can never have enough trims). I got some great clearance scrapbooking paper (Michael's this week 7/$1) and covered the boring manilla tags. I've been having fun mixing and matching trims on the cards. I've got seven done so far, but I have many tags ready for trims. I do have more trims than I could ever use. I need to feed the wee one and get back to the trims. :) Such a horrible way to spend the day.
