Tokens of Love in the making...


Well, here we are, January 24th and I need to get several sets of angel wings made by the end of the month. After a lull, I'm getting requests for them again and so I'll need to make a trip to our local framing shop to buy some mat board large enough for the bases.



By February 4th, I should have a large variety of love tokens ready. There will be more than a dozen puzzle purse valentines, a dozen or so soldered heart in hand charms, several more framed love tokens {the ones listed in my Etsy shop sold out in just a few days ~ thank you!}, possibly a few heart in hand paperweights, and if all goes as planned, I will have just a few love tokens in antique velvet frames.


I only had one last year and it sold right away. There were requests for more, but unfortunately I didn't have any frames. Over the past year, I have been collecting those beautiful, old, worn velvet frames {some were found via a dealer in France!} and I hope to make some pretty, paper pieces just for these frames {and for you!}.



I have stacks of parchment papers to age and stain, I have my tools of the trade gathered, and I will be busy working for the next couple of weeks. This is going to be FUN! :)


I keep putting this off, but I will be back this week with some exciting news.... some of you have already heard and seen it, but I just haven't had time to announce it on my blog yet. ;)

Take Care and God Bless,
Lana
