Elizabeth posted about my blender tags here and here.
I was commissioned to make another blender tag, and although I didn't have the same patterned paper anymore, I came up with this:


  1. I just find all of these 'kitchen appliance' Tags completely adorable! so creative and colourful!!!!

    ciao bella
    creative carmelina

  2. I am blown away. Where can I find the details on what you ladies are doing. The tags all appear to have the same line of paper? Do you get together and create one project?

  3. I am becoming a new follower. I am sorry I have not found your blog before now. I have similar interests as you and I have two creative blogs. one is dedicated to only paper crafts and scrapbooking. I am looking for someone to swap with on both of my blogs. Come check out my swaps at
    I sure love your tags, and other projects. I just might sign up for the pocket exchange.

  4. What FUN!!! All these tags are awesome and what a delightful way to add to a recipe collection. Loved each and every one. :) Theresa

  5. Thanks for sharing. They are all just so adorable!!
