Monday projects


Happy Monday my friends.  This week's PTI Make It Monday is to make a confetti garland and I have a true confusion, I decided to re-do another recent project.  The bonus of when you make things just to make things, somehow it's okay to take them apart and redo them?  Anyhoo... today's tag uses the garland idea, it's a bit tricky to find the right string/twine/ribbon to go through sequins, so after a few failed efforts I used some paper twine I had in my stash, it's a bit stiff, but worked really well with the sequins (which you can barely see, but I promise they're there.  I added several PTI die cuts (tiny tags and tremendous tags, plus a button and some red and pink sequins).  And my second project has a garland feel to it too.  I CASEd yesterday's card and made a baby card, also inspired by the current CAS(E) this sketch challenge.  As always I'm starting my Monday off running...  It is truly amazing what I can accomplish before 9:15am some days.  Now back to work, I've got a fun blog post about the Tibetan monks in our community and the amazing sand mandala they're creating, be up on my work blog shortly.
