~Paper Knots Tag~







I can't imagine a greater gift...than opening your home to a child.



I have not had the honor or calling yet...but I know a handful that have dedicated their lives in this special way.


I want to be ready when another couple takes that big step.






For this tag,


I experimented with paper shreds...after being inspired by 


Tracey Sabella's lovely use of denim shreds here.


I thought, why not try knotting up paper remnants???


It worked like a charm with glossy accents.







Well, another Friday in December...the next two will fly by quick...mark my words!!!
