Hi. Welcome to my blog. What makes me happy? My husband Shane, quiet moments of content, hearing the pops of my jars sealing when canning, a to-do list with lots of things crossed off of it, time to create, and time to "stalk" creative blogs and how-to videos. I love creating with paper. I've been scrapbooking and creating mini-albums and cards for about 23 years. I have a passion for rubber stamping and I'm happiest when I have time to play with paper and ink. Time for creating is Bliss! Have fun exploring my blog.

Paris Shabby Chic Vintage Lace Tag & Treasure Swap
I created a Trim & Treasure Tag Swap for a friend from Canada who I met on Swap-bot. Swap-bot is a website that connects you with other creative people to swap handmade items and/or craft supplies. Our task for this swap was to first create a tag and then wrap it up with loads of ribbon and lace and tuck into it numerous baubles. I created a Paris themed tag and included some antique finds such as an ornate turn key, vintage buttons, cabochons, some bling, antique keys, a strip of vintage pins, charms, beads, a vintage card of buttons, a small flower applique, and a tiny antique locket. I totally wrapped it all up in a huge amount of vintage laces (only a small sampling is shown here), tulle, and vintage eyelet linen pieces. I had such a great time creating this little inspiration kit on a tag! I sure hope my swap-bot partner likes it!
