The tags shown above are from (left to right) Karla, Sharon, Tina, and Darlene Nahre.
These are the tags I made. I didn't really read the directions completely, so I decorated the front AND back of the tags. And I didn't put my name prominently on the back so I've only heard from one of my recipients. If the others don't have excellent eyesight, they may not even see my name. Oh well.
It was great fun making them all and if you've never been in a swap, I highly recommend it.
Thanks Karla, for putting these all together for us!

I have a thing for glass cloches. I like to change them up to be a one-of-a-kind artwork. This one had no knob at the top so I made one out of a percolator coffeepot top and a watch face. There's a picture of the whole thing down below. Another one of my passions is blinging up ordinary metal pieces. This is a candelabra that stands about 3 feet tall!
I also love old chairs. This one has a hole in the seat to put a flowerpot.
This is the cloche whose topper is pictured above. I have much more stuff so come on out and take a look next Saturday, July 9th from 8am-2pm. I would really love to quit my day job and open my dream business. But, since it took me about 2 years to acquire and alter all of the things I'll (hopefully) sell out of next Saturday, I guess I'm not quite ready yet. My studio looks so bare nowadays. I've decided what to spend my earnings on: a designer for my blog banner, business cards, and logo. Let me know if you know a good one! Have a happy holiday weekend.
