Easter Bunting


For my Easter project this year I have made a paper bunting.


I composed a Haiku poem around the meaning of Easter.


take time to reflect


the forgiveness of pure love


as new life springs forth


I used the generous gift of rosy bunting from Gale at Paper Whimsy,
exquisite silk screen printed vellum by Papermania,
alpha stickers, 3mm pink pearls & twisted cord.

A Poets Heartbeat

The Craft Barn has revealed the next letter in the Alpha Challenge, which will run throughout the year.

The next alpha is P.

This is the front of my tag ...


.. with additional Postage stamps



On the reverse side, there is a Haiku Poem I composed especially for this tag.



organising words
for rhyme or for a reason
a poets heartbeat

I have used patterned papers Life's Journey Pansy by K & Company & Distress Ink (antique linen).

I am creating a tag for each letter of the alphabet & you can see more detail here.

What matters most ...

The Craft Barn has revealed the next letter in the Alpha Challenge, which will run throughout the year.

The next alpha is M, with a twist. We had to choose a word between Ma & Me in the dictionary.

This is the front of my tag.


I made a copy of the definition & enlarged the text size to create the effect of a magnifying glass.


The magnifying glass is made from a metal rimmed tag (with the card centre removed) & a clear domed circular epoxy sticker.


This is the back of the tag.


It is the little things in life which matter most

I have used patterned papers Life's Journey Pansy by K & Company & Distress Ink (antique linen).
