Americana Hang Tags

Since I haven't been crafting as much lately (because I'm focusing more on painting right now), I thought I'd create a new Primitive Freebie for you to download today. So I've created a PDF printable sheet of Primitive Hangtags in two styles for you. These are Americana Hang Tags.

Hope this helps you do some fun summer crafting!

Enjoy. :)

I just wanted to share this fun gift I got for Mother's Day from my daughter. It's not necessarily prim, but it does have a wonderful vintage look that I love. And since we'll be moving in the next couple of years to "the farm" (as the Hubs calls it), I think he will live nicely in my farmhouse kitchen I will have there.

And he's really the best kind of rooster...he won't make any noise! LOL.

Primitive Teddy Bear

I've had this little stuffed bear sitting in my studio for years, because I was never sure what I wanted to do with him. I just always thought he was cute--even though I'm not really a teddy bear kind of gal. But I decided to do a little bit of primming with him and this is what I have...so far.

I added some homespun to him, along with some Pip Berries, a couple of cinnamon sticks, and a Rusty Tin star. And I like that. But he doesn't look finished to me yet. I think I need to go back and grungy him up a bit. That may be the finishing touch that he needs to be perfectly primitive. Don't you think?

Grungy Taper Bucket

I know I've been a bit lax in posting lately. It's just that I've been much more in art mode than in craft mode lately. Between working on art projects, art journals, and adding stuff to two online shoppes (not selling prims though)--not to mention blogging on several blogs and posting on several FB pages, it is very difficult to find time to do it all. So it seems I get a bit hyperfocused on a few things at times and can't always seem to find time for the other stuff. It's really just how my brain works is all. But I'm still here and I do have something to share with you today!

This is my Grungy Taper Bucket. I took one of my grungy primitive candles and added it to a mini Rusty Tin bucket, added a few little extras, and voila--my candle in a bucket.

Now I will say that this is meant to be decorative rather than functional. I just think it would look cute sitting on a shelf or a table with some pip berries nearby, like I added in the photo. Just something simple and cute, and easy to make. It would be great as a gift too.

Oh, and just in case you need a reminder on how to make my Grungy Primitive Tapers, just click on that link and it'll take you right to the page.
