dilly dallying



I could ramble off a long list of things I should be doing, could be doing, would be doing, but what am I doing? Sneaking in a little time to make more les petits tirois*!



I plan to use some for packaging little surprise treats for friends



and will also list some on my online shops soon (maybe in sets? any thoughts?)

Tinkered Tip: Easy gift tags


Small shipping tags from an office supply store + stickers + glitter + ribbon = quick, easy and festive


Sources: Tags: Staples; stickers, glitter, glue, ribbon: Michaels


Sources: Gift wrap: Target; candy canes: Bob's Candy Canes

Okay, back to the list! Perhaps I'll begin with baking something because other tasks are made nicer when the house smells yummy!

*I received some of my very favorite comments at that post and thank you all so much!

Cutest darn little things you are making! I love them and the tags:) Have a yummy day!

Ah - your les petits tirois are so pretty. Is that rayon ribbon that you are using? So pretty! Sets would be wonderful.
I am still finishing up crafts for decorating. And making candy & cookies - Hubby is eating them faster than I can make them!

Have a wonderful weekend, Elyse!

They are so cute. Where in the world do you get all the little matchboxes? Absolutely adorable and your tags are sweet, too. I've been cleaning all day. Boo! More tomorrow and then maybe I can do some crafting -- if I can find my supplies. They are strewn from one place to another. I must get organized over this holiday break. Blessings to you and yours, :) Tammy

Oh Elyse! I got so excited when I saw your opening picture! The colors are so delish and the single little Forget Me Not just "makes" the box (imoo!)

Ok, now I'm inspired. Need to go purchase glitter. I think that is what my Christmas preparations have been missing all along.

Thanks for sharing!

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Sweet tags - how could they be anything but being created by Elyse!!

I am so mad at myself. I was in such a hurry trying to get your package off. I came back from the PO and one of your little gifts had fell on floor and I missed getting it in! Well I will just have to send you a little surprise package someday when you have no clue!
