...no, this is not a political post. I am priviledged to be able to create cards and tags, etc. for one of Lake Tahoe's South Shore gift shops, Lake Tahoe Holidays. She really does have the most beautiful shop in town - if you are ever up this way it will be well worth a stop. I go in there just to be around all the beautiful items she carries. She has something for every holiday and occasion along with having this amazingly great eye for decor. Her prices are unbelieveable - she feels as I do - to always have something beautiful and affordable for every budget. In these times, that's even more important. You will love it if you ever get up this way, I believe some of you live nearby, and then of course this IS one of the vacation hot spots.
Not only that, but she stretches me - things that I have wanted to "find" the time for are now something I "will" find the time for because she has requested them for her shop. One of the new items Keri has requested is a banner (and now several more) for her Americana section, along with Halloween, babies, etc. So here is the first of many to come. I had such fun putting this together for her. I was not company specific on this. I used supplies from Crafty Secrets, Prima, ScrapSmart, Michael's, etc. etc. The banner spells out "Freedom". Next time I would like to use a little more stamping, and have already made some purchases.

And then the full view - sorry, I don't have a good place to hang this right now, so I had to use my table
Hope you like it! If you are interested in making banners, I will be creating and posting some smaller ones as well. Along with the banners, She has requested paper crowns for brides and birthday parties. I'm very excited as I love new challenges and as I said before I have been wanting to create some of these very things.
Take care, have a wonderful day, and try to spend at least a little time doing what YOU love and/or spending time with someone you love.
