Polar Bear Postage

November 29, 2012
This year was a big year for bear sightings in Aspen. Since we had a short winter, there was not enough food and so they decided to come into town, and into the trash bins. But getting back to the topic, this inspired me to use the "bear" as a theme for my new gift tags. Tadah!

Since I now own a stationary store, I am rooting for "snail mail" and good old fashioned letter and card writing. The light blue and red like the old air mail envelopes, and the postage stamp give it a vintage look. And to finish it of an eyelet and baker's twine. 
I sell these in boxes of 10 for $20.00, so they are available to you now. Plan your shopping and wrapping and get ready for the holidays!!!


Pretty Paper Arrival!

November 27, 2012
Last week I received a shipment of wrapping paper! This paper is really thick cotton paper, and since the Holiday Season is upon us, I ordered some "Merry" Paper! I couldn't wait to use it, and as luck would have it I had an occasion to wrap a gift. This is the final result: 

And I decided to make a coordinating gift tag. I did a striped water mark with blue greeting, a yellow eyelet and some baker's twine. There is nothing better than receiving a pretty package. 


New Blog!!!

November 19, 2012

Hi ,
I am creating the first entry. I will be using the blog to be able to record my ideas and things that I am working on. It's a beautiful day in Aspen, and my shop has prime views that I am sharing with you. We are ending "off season" and Thanksgiving day brigns the beginning of ski season in town. Come back and visit often!
Have a wonderful day!
