little tags

my little cache of shipping tags came in handy this week when veja cecilia tapped my shoulder with a few questions. i made it through a few of them, at least, before i was interrupted:







i know, i didn't make it through even a sliver of them, but i tried, and now i'll pass along the tag to anyone interested! visit cecilia for a full list of questions and be sure to check out her gorgeous, intricate patterns while you're there. and if you want to make these little tags for yourself, they are fun and easy. pick up a box of 500 shipping tags at office max, ink them like this, and re-thread them with a fun yarn. then start collaging, painting, drawing, whatevering on them and soon you'll have enough to use for notepad covers, mini journal covers, gift tags, or of course, answering tags!

SQUEEEEEEAAAAALLLL! OMG, aimee, this is such a clever and fun way to do a tag! You are so fantastic! And my sides are a-splittin', you are so funny. :D You know, I loved reading through the J. Peterman catalogs. And waking up to realizing you're being seasoned??? Hoooooohooooooo! Which one did that to you? And WHY?!

Annie Pazoo said...

This is fantastic, and all gave me a thought, a recollection, a smile. Smiled the most, though, at the 4-hr. old with the garlic salt. :-)

Kelly said...

i love these, aimee! i'm going to have to try some! :-)

aimee said...

thanks for being a good sport, veja cecilia ;)

the older one was responsible for the garlic salt episode. i was ultra sleep deprived when it took place - we had just moved, had a three month old infant, and i had no idea what was night or day. i drifted off and paid for it.

thanks all for your kind and funny comments :)

Milkberry said...

So cool and whimsical. The 4-year old reminded me of last winter when I had the flu and fainted. I came to with my then-4-year old holding a plastic breathing mask to my face (he got it from a doctor friend) and my husband barking, "Your mama is not a toy!"

Ces said...

Hello hello hello!!! I am catching up. OMG! I am delightfully exhausted looking at all your wonderful creations. I wish I have the same energy level. Aimee, I thought of you and Bella last week while I was in Asheville. There was an art store that sold all kinds of paper, beautiful paper. I almost went into panic. Thank goodnes logic and sensibilities prevailed and I stopped myself short from buying every design and then wondering what to do with them.

Christy said...

The last one is definitely my favorite. You have such priceless wit!

Peace & Love,
