Bottled Up no more!



Altered bottles absolutely fascinate me. Empty ones call to me for the possibilities of what interesting treasures or messages they can store. I have been storing up the inspiration for a looooong time until I couldn't stand it any more. Last night at the kids' bedtime, I suddenly decided the time was right to alter a tag (intended for a bottle) and that led to a bottle itself. I started the tag, then had to bide my time down in the living room, waiting for the kids to fall asleep (it almost killed me) so I could creep back upstairs and work under the small light of my desk lamp, stamping embellishing, rummaging and hoping my rustlings wouldn't wake the sleeping angels in their rooms off my studio.
Success! The first tag was too big, but it might fit another bottle or project. I am very happy with the one bottle I completed. Can't wait to do more! A dusty box full of them wait for me on our back porch. Oh, the possibilities! (rubbing hands together in delicious anticipation!)
