Etsy Inspired #123--1.22.11

Happy Saturday everyone! Today's shop is Nanny's Room which specializes in original art work and handmade items. They are offering 10% off any purchase through January 31st if you mention the coupon code "etsy10" and they are also offering one of this week's winners a necklace of their choice from the selection of necklaces in the picture below.

Here is a sampling of some of their items

and here's the piece that I was inspired by

 I rolled the ribbon to give it some dimension and then "draped" it to bring focus to the rub on 
which is where I drew the inspiration from

This week we are lucky to have The Twinery as our sponsor. They have a fabulous selection in twine in EVERY color, and they are offering our second winner  a Trio pack of twine of their choice(valued at $42)!! Oh, if I could be so lucky to win! Well, I LOVE twine, and decided to make a tag showcasing some baker's twine.

  So, now it's your turn to play along. Make sure to visit the design team's blogs to see their BEAUTIFUL projects  so that you  can get inspired to create a fabulous project of your own! Make sure to post your design to the Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog by Friday, January 28th at noon!
