Crafty Day

The last few days I have been spending some time making tags. There are some really talented gals out there in blogland doing this I just had to give it a try. I must admit that I had a little help. When I opened the drawer to remove my craft goodies someone climbed inside. If you look closely you can see the yellow eyes of a black kitty cat peeking out. Anytime he can get involved he is a happy cat.
After a few days of working at it a little here and there this is what I've got to show you.
I decided to reward myself with a plate of strawberries for a job well done. I really like the tags with old music & roses on them. I think they are my favorite.
These have really great embossed flower stickers on them.

Then I did some more earthy tags. For folks who don't like fofo & flowers.
I have been using essential oils for so many years now that they have become an important and soothing part of my life and I use them many times a day.

Let me share with you how I use them when I am doing a project like crafting. Before I begin I set the intention of what I want to accomplish. Today my intention was to finish the remainder of the tags within a specific period of time, in a graceful manner with lovely results.
I then opened my bottle of essential oil blend called "Magnify Your Purpose". I held it under my nose and took a deep breath. I put 1 drop in my hands, touched a little to my forehead and rubbed the rest on my hands, sealing in the intention. I also used the blend of "Highest Potential". Then I began my crafting process. When they were done I dropped 1 drop of essential oil blend called "Highest Potential" in my hands, rubbed them together and gently rubbed some of the oil onto each tag to infuse each one with this amazing scent.
This oil was blended to help you gather your possibilities and achieve your highest potential. It assists in removing roadblocks and opening new vistas.

This is just what I needed to gather inspiration to make these tags in a beautiful and artful manner. Not to mention that the smell of this therapeutic grade essential oil is just heavenly! I smell the aroma as I work. It is truely inspiring.

When I give a tag with a gift I will again choose an appropriate oil and infuse the gift and the tag with this oil before giving. People love to receive the energy and scent of a special oil choosen just for them.
If you would like to learn more about these essential oils please contact me. I would love to share with you as I have been doing for almost 12 years now. Thanks for visiting.

Ahrisha, They'e absolutely beautiful!
The roses on the music especially!
They look so joyful and feminine. Someone's going to be receiving a treat when you share those. I'm glad you came over and told me you had made them.
Is it raining there today too? It is here. We've turned off the TV because it was a rerun on the Hallmark Channel and were just sitting in our living room reading and listening to the patter of the raindrops on the roof - so soothing!
Looks like you enjoyed your project!

They are beautiful Ahrisha! And that they smell as good as they look makes them really special! Are you going to try the fabric fronted dresser? I'm really tempted to. Isabels is just so charming! Vanna
