Blog-iversary Giveaway Part 2

It was 3 years ago TODAY that I wrote my first post at Linda's urging. She said she would read my blog if I wrote one. She was my one faithful reader for a very long time!

To celebrate, I am giving away two tags. Each is very different, but both feature the use of one of my rusted suspender clips (available in my etsy shop!) This fly screening creation is tag #2. To see tag #1, see my previous post. Leaving a comment on either post gets you into the random drawing for both.

Tags aren't made out of just paper anymore!
And no, my sewing machine did not break from running fly screening through it, although there were a lot of paint flecks and rusty bits left behind! And yes, that is a zipper used as a border element!

...and I'm laughing at Linda's comment at the top, so to along with her, I think you should just give it to me since I haven't done a darn thing to help you and maybe it would inspire me to ?!?! rofl
Blessings to you, Nathalie, and thank you for being an inspiration!

Trying to play catch-up after preparing for and then being on vacation. Glad I didn't miss your blog-iversary celebration.
Your tags are fabulous with those little suspender clips. I think I have some mitten clips around here somewhere that might be a good substitute.
Congrats on three years in blogland!
