It’s the little things…

…that count. In this case it’s those little gift tags I made today. I was in a bad mood all day – my younger son takes a lot of energy and I was just not happy with how our day started and that feeling continued to drag along… I had to do soemthing. SInce I didn’t have too much time, I started to punch some gift tags and began to doodle with a marker (PITT artist pen ‘brush’). I liked them already but thought a bit of color couldn’t hurt… and after I colored the first I knew where they would go: To a friend of mine who loves handmade things and also has kids.
I thought I’d leave some of the tags black and white, so they can have some fun too πŸ˜‰ I made one for each family member (they are a family of seven). Β So here they are, ready to go.

      I tend to come back to the same things over time, but love to experiment as well.
