Vacation!

Hello, dear followers!

The piecefuljoy.etsy.com shop is on vacation and so is this blog. My summer will be full of moving boxes, road trips and other festivities.  Because I will not be 100% available for the Pieceful Joy shop, I feel that it’s best to put the shop on “vacation mode.” I will be back late summer!

Have a fabulous summer full of fun, friends, family and sunscreen! 🙂

Let’s Celebrate Spring! :-)

Girlishly Pink Flower Tags

Girlishly Pink Flower Tags

Width: 2 inches, height: 4 3/4 inches.

These girlishly pink tags (set of four) are hand cut from textured paper and display a delightfully detailed paper sticker. The tags’ pink paper has been slightly lightened around the edges to provide further depth and texture. The scalloped bottoms of the cute tags has been accented with small dots of soft green paint to emulate lace. A darling pink ribbon has been attached to each tag. This pink ribbon is long enough to tie onto gift wrapping. The back of the tag is blank, just waiting for you to personalize.

Cutie Patootie Kitty Collar

On a day when I had 5 billion things on my to-do list,  inspiration hit me.

And it started at Hobby Lobby.

{Surprised?}

In the Easter section, I found this adorable animal pearl “necklace” adorned with 2 pastel pink bows. I laughed at the thought of actually buying it – but it was just $2…so I plopped it in the cart.

When I got home, I glanced at the lengthy to-do list {with the kitty necklace in hand} as I searched for my lovely 14 year old black and white cat named “Inkin.” Once I found her snoozing on the bed, I switched out her teal diamondy collar with my new ultra girly find.

And giggled. The two pink bows looked like a bit too much – and a bit tooooo girlishly girly.

I picked up Inkin, showed my husband her necklace. He laughed.  After the chuckles subsided he agreed that the two pink bows were a little much. So I took off a cheery green ribbon from a wrapped gift for a special someone {gasp} and replaced the pink bows with the modernly hued apple green bow.

{Side note: Inkin was  wearing her new accessory as I replaced the ribbons. She was chilling on the couch’s arm rest.}

Still giggling at how ridiculous it was for Inkin to have a “pearl necklace” I saw that something was missing. Another dash of color, texture, visual interest…maybe a red button {naww to Christmasy}…or a gold one! {nope..too…neutral}…how about a 4-holed vintage teal button? Yes, of course!

At this time, Inkin was still sitting on the couch’s arm rest. And she stayed there {while still wearing her necklace} as I sewed on the teal button.

Adorable!

{Once the button was attached, Inkin did a great job modeling her cutie patootie kitty collar. }

Moral of the story: even when the to-do list is long, don’t completely ignore a burst of inspiration.
