Hi, and thanks so much for stopping by!

My project this week was to make a project that uses something beginning with the first letter of my first name, "T".  I don't know if it was my limited imagination or just limited items, but for some reason all I could think of for "T" was twine and thread.  I wanted to make something "different", meaning other than a card, so I decided to use these little canvas bags that I've had for a long time to make something to hold Easter treats.  Mind you, they turned out to be less Easter and more Spring, but that's usually what happens when I create anyway - what I intended to make is not what I end up with.

I dug into my considerable stamp collection, which unfortunately I rarely use, and came up with a butterfly and some different lettering stamps and some border stamps.  I stamped each bag, then used my Copic markers to color the stamped designs.  I then sewed on some flowers and beads with THREAD.  I took out the drawstrings that were originally in the bags (they were too thick and ugly), and replaced them with TWINE and ribbon drawstrings, adding beads at the ends of the twine.

Here are some closeup images of the individual bags:

I hope you take the time to visit us this week over at The Outlawz and play along with our Saturday Paper a la Mode Challenge.  Or just stop in and say hello and see what projects the Design Team and our members have shared this week.

Thanks for stopping by to visit!  Blessings and big hugs to you!
