Inchies, tags and little presents

Dang, can I cram everything I have to update you on into one post? One can but try, lol, just hope its not going to be too trying ( sigh, sorry, couldn't help myself ) for you.

Now that we got that stupid bit out of the way, I'll start with two week's worth of inchies. Last week was RED and this week is BLUE -

Ahem, you can probably tell that I have only just finished making the BLUE inchie......... the darned glue hasn't even dried yet, lol!

Tags, oh my, I have been making so many tags, and way too often I forget to photograph them. Like yesterday, when I made a tag specifically to go with the three miniature books I sold on Etsy. I was so chuffed to have found good pics of Blaise Pascal and Victor Hugo, and made a tag with those to go with the books, wrapped it, posted it this morning and then realised I hadn't taken any pics. Poo. Did take pics of a couple of others though -

This fun tag went with a vintage French madeleine baking tray -

This one went with a "manly" gift a customer bought -

And now I am going to show you a much much more beautiful tag, a BIG Christmas Card tag! I received this in the mail from my bloggy friend Lynn, from Trash to Treasure Art, and it is absolutely delightful. Aaahh, the details! It is embossed, has the sweetest image of two gorgeous young girls and the embellishments are twinkly and sparkly and perfect -

and all lit up with a golden glow from a stray ray of sunshine this morning -

Gorgeous, isn't it? Thank you, Lynn!

I have more to show you, but this post is already rather long. I think I will leave the other stuff for another post. If I get time this evening, I'll post it tonight. Thats a rather big if though, lol, don't hold your breath!

For now its toodlepip, xxx

Hello! Remember me? Been way too busy lately I'm afraid. I do like what you have been making especially the pretty red inchie. Is that leaf real? I love how you include a tag with your goods you sell. So thoughtful and a lovely surprise for the recipient. You might get people buying just so they can get one of your tags! Hope you are all well and enjoying the build up to Christmas. No snow yet?
