Happy 2nd Anniversary, The Greeting Farm!

Time flies by in the blink of an eye! It only seems yesterday that we celebrated TGF's first anniversary and what a great one it was!

I am so honor to celebrate another wonderful year with TGF! Happy Anniversary, TGF! Another amazing year! Hope many more to come!

Today, I have something rather "old school" to share! You would think with today's modern technology, we no long need a big address book! Well, I do! I am one of those between old-fashioned and modern-ed girl! I keep everyone's info on my phone and email address book but I have to have a hard copy as well!

Well, here is a journal book I altered into an address book! This is a book of all my blogging friends' info. Since I called this book "Circle of Friends", I randomly choose six TGF images and formed them into a circle.

I made a set of alphabet tags as well. On each of the tag, I have an inspirational quote along with a TGF image, stamped in Tim Holtz' tea dye distressed ink. Each tag has a different TGF image.



Here is a little bag with with a couple of things I made for my niece, who is starting school this September. I tried stamping on fabric for the first time. It's pretty cool!


Here are what's inside. This is a mini ruled notepad. I adhered to a piece of cardstock, decorated it and punched the corner with my Crop-A-Dile II. Put a one inch book ring through, tied a few different ribbons and viola! Easy Peasy!


Here is a mini pen that goes with the notepad. I used shrink plastic and made this froggy charm.

I really like hoe my bag set came out so I am thinking of making some of these as party favors for my babie's party in December. I better start making these then!
Well, that's all I have for you! Thanks a bunch for stopping by and happy hopping!
