It's Rednesday!!!!

Is it just me or has anyone else ever found themself saying yes to so many requests, special orders and making promises that all need to be kept that it simply overwhelms you?  These past couple of weeks have been just like that for me.  I always think that I have way more time then I actually do.  As a result I was unable to participate in the last two Rednesdays hosted by Sue at "It's a  Very Cherry World" .  With my deadlines all met, I thought I would once again join in the fun and share something red today.  My first red item is my new blog header.  I tried my hand at creating my own .  I have always loved the reproduction fabric from the 1930's and thought it would make a fun background to showcase pictures of my family.  I am not a digital scrapbooker but this banner was fun to make---hmmm I just might have to give this digital scrapbooking a try.  The second red item that I would like to share with you is this little tusie musie that I created.  I participated in A Swap for all Season's tusie musie swap and this is the gift I made for my sweet partner Sarah.  Her favorite color is---you guessed it---RED

If you would like to see pictures of the other tusies musies that were created, just click on this link.  There really are some beauties!!!   I know these next items are not red but I also wanted to share the other goodies that I sent Sarah along with her tusie musie.  First this little bluebird of happiness bookmark and a scrabble tile necklace for her daughter Grace. 
And this little birdy banner for her other daughter, Jilian.
I really enjoyed making this banner.  The bird image is actually cut from a wonderful piece of fabric that I recently purchased from an amazing fabric shop that I just discovered. I love the look of mixing scrapbook paper and fabric in my projects.  I had some extra fabric so I decided to make a similar banner for my etsy shop.   
Thanks for stopping by to visit today.  I hope you all have a HAPPY Rednesday.
