"New" is the Word of the Day~!

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.  Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential.  ~Ellen Goodman
Happy New Year!

I love this day. New beginnings. New ideas. New Toys!

Today I am sharing some new toys from The {Stamps} of Life and Really Reasonable Ribbon

RRR is having a new challenge that starts today and it's all about new toys and ribbon~! And TSOL has a brand new Club Release called pinwheels2stamp! Put them together and you have one spintastic, wheely fun creation!

I used the coordinating Kite Die set to cut out and paper piece the pinwheel design and add the little bow ties. I love that so many of Stephanie's sets and dies can be used interchangeably! Both the stamp set and die set are brand new toys for me!

Isn't pinwheels2stamp cute? Lots of fun, interchangeable designs and sizes! Become a Club Member and this 20 stamp set can be yours for only $10.95!

My ribbon from RRR uses one of my favorite styles that Bonnie carries -- Double Ruffle Ribbon. It comes in many colors and widths. This is the Aqua Satin Double Ruffle Ribbon in 3/8" width.
I used a length for my tag tie at the top, but also made a little border on the side of the tag with this shimmery, pretty ribbon.

RRR is having a Three-Year Blogaversary Giveaway -- (Congratulations, Bonnie!!) -- and TSOL is having a Flip-It Card Contest! Don't miss out on either one - as there are great prizes to be had!
