This past weekend I was at the beach for a three day retreat with a group of girlfriends from church. The weekend was called "a cup of Christmas tea".
There were twelve themes -
FRIENDSHIP * FAMILY * JOY * LIGHT * SHARING * PEACE
* TRADITIONS * THANKSGIVING * GIVING *
DREAMS * HOPE * STILLNESS
My girlfriend Jan found these great little plain white tea cups and tasked me with coming up with a favor for the weekend. I love tags and ribbons, so I decided to make a little tag book with a separate tag for each of the words. That worked out to 12 x 13 = 156 tags, each with their own ribbon.
I used an American Crafts Christmas paper set for the back of the tags. Their paper coordinates so well!
This was a simple project, but I was happy with the way it turned out.
The retreat was wonderful.
I don't know that I came back so much relaxed as renewed.
Hello! I've been scrapbooking for about seven years and I just love it. I love to play with paper! My primary interest is scrapbooking, but that can take so many forms.... I am always looking for new ideas. I love to see what other people are working on. I am happy to share my toys (i.e. tools). I play well with others, but watch out - I have been known to run with scissors.
