Pilgrim Power

It's almost time to celebrate Thanksgiving....let's show some Pilgrim power.
Or if you are like me...you may have some Indian blood (I have a tiny smidge of Cherokee).
These are my Thanksgiving tags...they are several years old atleast...but I have taken some better pictures now.
It is amazing how you can grow at photography....learning all the tricks of the trade.
I wrapped Pilgrim power around a thrift store book...to dress it up.
The pumpkin tag goes nicely around a small basket.
I added ribbons and glitter to the tags for fun.

They have some of my favorite old photos from my collection on them. 
Turkey time!
Let's Gobble til we wobble! 
There are 12 tags in this set...ready to use on your dolls, primitive things, hanging on pegs or prim trees, wrap around a book or photo album, tie to a basket, and of course for gift tags. There are fun sayings like: Pilgrim power, Thanksgiving joys, Gobble till you wobble, pilgrim's rule, Be thankful, Turkey time, Pumpkin pie....and more.
Now I must check for sales on Turkeys at the grocery stores.

Yarn, strings, & streamers

Happy Tuesday to you!
I wanted to share pics of my studio with you...It will take a while...but today I am showing you my yarn, strings, & streamers.
I love collecting these items....I do not crochet....simply because I never know what to do at the end of a row...lol.
I use these items to craft with though.
Here I have a child's shopping cart that I spray painted gold.
It was at a thrift store...all rusty and dirty.
The white cart is a plant stand....goodwill.
I love to store my yarns there.

I use these with tags, adding to quilts and stitcheries, on presents, as pieces of any collage, and doll hair.

Here is my cute drying rack...I use it to hold my baskets of goodies!
This way I can see pretty easily what I need.
Most every item comes from a thrift store....I do not need more than one of each since I am not crocheting or knitting.

I have every color of party streamer there is....they make great badges.(I have made patterns for every badge possible).  Party streamers are so cheap and I feel they are so underestimated in crafting.
Christmas Santa Art Badges E Pattern - Pins doll PDF jewelry old photos ribbon paper crepe star primitive altered art party
My badges...here is one of the Christmas ones.

I love the stringy glittery kind on yarn!

At the top of my rack are spools of ribbon, yarn in the wire vase, and thread.
Wow, my fan is looking like it just might fly away.
I got those lights in the background in the summer....for my birthday.

Red ribbon ...ready for Christmas,Valentines day, and the Fourth of July.

I don't need any more...no place to put it!

This is by my Sewing area....threads...and my spools of tulle.
I LOVE Tulle.
Great for my party hats and lots of other crafting goodness.
