Blog gets a makeover

Hey there,

If you're one of my two subscribers (haha) thanks for hanging out! I wanted to take a moment and talk about some of the changes I made to the blog. I got rid of Artist Trading Cards and Digital Designs. People weren't really coming here for that. I kept some of the designs though and just moved it to my "Other Stuff" section.

I have been making a lot of tags, so they get their own heading now. I also created a section for just general blogging. I never really BLOG in the traditional sense but I could also use a space to just vent sometimes so I created a secret journal section where I will actually blog from time to time in addition to just sharing all of my craft stuff.

That's about it. Thanks for reading and checking out my space.


Door Decorations! Past Lives of Staff Members

So I wasn't going to make door decorations for my staff this year, but then I changed my mind and couldn't help myself. Here is the final set for my staff:

Here are some close ups of the different tags (I made some for our sister staff as well):

I don't usually make gender specific crafts, but I had a limited number of bottle caps and didn't realize until after I made the male tags. Not to worry... the tag here is how the female tags turned out. They have a distressed photo from a photo strip that was stamped and embellished, some washi tape on a stamped background, a small label made from a stamp, a distressed ticket, and some lace with a letter for the staff member.

The male version was pretty similar, except instead of lace I used a button and some tissue paper and instead of the ticket, I used a bottle cap and a piece of film.

I was really excited to give these too my staff :)

Some of the highlights of this month's tag is using the negative space from word die cuts, some fun ink tricks, collaging, and stamps! Here are some views of my tag:
