more plaid barn favorites

I have felt a little scattered this week. Now that I am at 100% on health, I am catching up on everything else work (day job and shop related) and home related. My head is swimming a little. I was pretty proud of myself that I had scheduled two posts already for this week and a few more ideas lept into my brain as well. One that I wasn't planning on was writing about the Plaid Barn. However, as soon as I saw these octopi I knew that I had to share them with you all. They are too beautiful to pass up.

As I was scrolling, something caught my eye on the lower portion of the screen...MORE linen tape available...and MORE fabric tape! You know how these are my weaknesses!

I could hardly believe my eyes...I had scooped this stuff up when it was on sale previously and I haven't regretted it since. The Plaid Barn has recently begun to sell additional items to their deal of the day and I find my eye wandering down to the corner of the screen to check out what they have.

Incase you needed a little inspiration of what to do with these fine supplies, last night I made pennants out of the linen tape by cutting the width in half and hand stamping letters (stamps were also ordered from the Plaid Barn!). It is one of my supervisor's birthdays this week and we are getting together to celebrate tomorrow. I volunteered to make the cupcakes and thought these little pennants would be perfect for the cakes. We have dubbed her our "fearless leader", hence the fearless leader stamped out on some of the pennants.

I wrapped them around the toothpicks and they are all set to stand triumphant in the cupcakes tomorrow. (Now that I look at them I realize that it looks like they say "Happy Fear" rather than "Happy Birthday Fearless Leader," so I will try to get a full, 3D picture later today to show you all.)

If you're interested in grabbing your own crafty deals on these supplies, check out the link in my Affiliates section to the right or click here on my personalized link to check out the deal of the day.
