Held Up!

So, this is where I have been held up over the weekend in our bedroom uploading the new Christmas tags to The Shop, catching up on orders, emails, requests etc over the weekend. I can now say that they are on, orders are done and sent and all is dandy!
Here is some of what I have been up to...
No sewing, just tags!
These are brand new. They are little shooting stars and I have used a vintage cutwork piece of linen to make the pattern.

I also made some in the small round tags.
I think they are so sweet...all year rounders really. The detail of the thread from the cutwork linen captured in the clay is my favourite and the fact that each one is different.
Christmas and the Holiday season was definitely high on the agenda and how could I not have a Gingerbread Person to add to the mix?
I am thinking of doing some of these for gifts this year with each persons name stamped down the center instead of the small men. You can personalise these too.

A slightly different variation on my other trees for this year
....can also personalised!!
Another all year rounder is this French Crown tag.
The background is French script and I love that the crown stamp didn't take the script away totally. You can make out the script through the main part of the crown.

Loving the snowflake.
These two tags are in the larger tag range, so they would be awesome tree decorations or even on the table. I could also see them hanging from a chandelier above the festive table in a small group.

My favourite though are the French Doves.
Made with the script they make a lovely finishing touch to a loved ones gift don't you think?
I would love to hear what you think.
You can check them out in Store HERE.

    I have always admired what you do and I really think I will have to get my skates on and buy some of these tags for Christmas this year. Only thing is, I can't make up my mind which ones I really love the most as I love them all. So when I'm ready I will let you know!! Hope you're having a great day.
