Banner Birthday Swap...
This year I am participating in A Swap For All Seasons with Linda as our hostess. Her blog is really fun and shares lots of inspirations. This year we are swapping 4" x 6" fabric banners. This is the size of a postcard so it is very doable. My swap recipient this month let me know she is having a milestone birthday so you know I designed my banner to honor that.
Using lace and fabric and felt and ribbons and buttons and beads makes this little banner very festive. I also hand embroidered Happy Birthday and stitched it on. I can share this now as it has been received and is well liked.
Here is the back with my signature ribbon label...Saucy Chicks.
I also created a birthday card to go along with the birthday theme. And I made the birthday girl a bubble wand. I think blowing bubbles is good for all celebrations.
So this is my January Banner swap completed and mailed and received. Now I shall move on to February as I just signed up today. Hooray! Thank you Linda for such great inspiration.
I am so blessed to be able to go into my studio sanctuary space and gather supplies and create fun.
California is continuing its drought with no rain or snow. We are really going to be in trouble come summer. If you have excess water table please send it along. If you can do the magic rain dance...please do it for us. I certainly am not looking forward to another year of our well going dry. Water is such a precious commodity.
Praying for World Peace...
