The season is upon us, although it is hard to imagine with the bursts of snow and freezing cold winds that keep cropping up around here. My friend Ellen has a new Etsy store with some beaded goodness that everyone ought to mark their gardens with. She's a talented Mama - she's been a Mama much longer than I - her baby is a junior in high school! She's just recently gotten serious about her crafting - and I can't wait to fill my very first garden, which we plan to plant this year (finally), with beautiful beaded garden tags (and veggies). I'm a big fan of utilitarian crafts. I like to use what I make and of course love to use what my friends make.
I wanted to help Ellen spread the word about her beaded craft and they are round about the cutest things I've seen in a while, so if you have a second to spare you ought to check them out. I'm only showing a few of them here, but I recall seeing a pumpkin, beets, cabbage, corn, lettuce, peas, asparagus, and the list goes on.
Ooh and I almost forgot to mention that she makes these tasty tag/seed-filled cards to gift as well.
Happy Crafting! And Happy Gardening! *Soon*
