Lavender Tea Bag Sachets

Spring & Summer Coffee Lovers  Blog Hop!

Today starts the 2018 Spring & Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Event! I really love to play along in these coffee/tea lover blog hops, they are so much fun! And the creativity is endless.! The theme is Spring/Summer and I am sharing some tea bags I altered into Lavender Sachet bags. Used tea bags were cut at bottom, dried, stamped on both sides and filled with lavender. I used pieces of a paper doily the same color- inked and attached to string.
 These will make cute little gifts and extras for swaps, cards, pocket letters etc!  

Happy Creating T.

Carpal Tunnel

My Wrist Braces!

Today I was fitted with these wrist braces.  I found out I have carpal tunnel and must wear these things day and night!
Bad thing is I am committed to two atc swaps and there's so much more crafting I want to do!  It will be a slow process. But I am going to craft some and will be back in the swing of it soon I hope, pain permitting... Hugs,T.
