Pretty Packaging

 I've been so busy with my new Etsy shop that I haven't had a chance to make a card in the past few days.  So it seemed like I had no reason to blog.  But I had all these delicious little packages ready to go out to my new customers and they were so pretty that I thought I would share them with you.  Above are rolls of the paper doily strips from my shop all rolled and tied with my rose scrunched seam binding.  Below are cards of plain white rayon seam binding.  You know I'm hooked on dying my own so I have been offering it in it's original plain state so you can custom dye it to match your current project.
Heartfelt thanks to all my blogging friends who have helped me get the word out through my blog candy promotion.  It's helping - I've averaged a couple of orders each day this week, which is an increase over prior weeks.  I'll be doing the drawing late this evening and will announce the winners with a post on Thursday morning.

Hope you are having a great week!
