tag two
Posted in handmade, personal, pia's photos July 24th, 2008 by piablog


and way back in march, sweet pamela jane tagged me asking for 7 random style facts about myself. I didn’t fulfill the tag back then as I had just done a similar tag and thought I should leave it a while. Well, it’s been a while, and no doubt Pamela has lost complete interest in me for not playing along back then, sorry Pamela! But here are my 7 random facts and since you mentioned the word ‘style’, i thought i would use that to share 7 style traits that i work and live by:

1. stay real.

2. love raw.

3. be refined.

4. think ‘sophistication’.

5. work in layers.

6. play loose.

7. work genuinely.

The photograph above is from a card I made for a new born a year or so ago. I cut a tiny dress from left over fabric, handstitched it with pink thread, made a tiny coat hanger from soft wire, hung it on a string attached to the card and created two little printed tags, one that said, “c’est une fille” and the other with the girl’s name. Do you like? I am bummed I gave it away actually as I know it wasn’t appreciated. But I can always make more! One fine day when I have the time again, I shall endeavor to make more. Perhaps when I have my own little bubs…one fine day.

    I love the tiny dress, I do not like much tags, everybody says more or less the same, I did that one last week, i tried to do something different, it took me too much time and the results were so so, but you my dear, has did in a brilliant way and very simple.

    It’s beautiful! If you had given it me when my girls were born, I would have hung it up as an art piece, in their nursery, (afraid it would be spit-up on)

    I love it Pia – I really like the cute hanger that you made too! So hard when something is made and it is not appreciated… I know that I would love it!

    So sweet! It is the worst, though, when you know someone doesn’t appreciate something you thought out and made especially for them. But I’m appreciating it enough for them, too! :)
