Free Gift Tags!!!

It's early this morning, but I impatiently waited for the kiln to get cool enough to pull out some of the gift tags so I could take pics. Even then, I had to handle them with tongs and a potholder because they were too hot too handle at first, but I've got the pics of the finished item!!!

These gift tags are so sweet! I honestly love them! I think they are the perfect "thank you" for selecting pretties from my etsy shop. In case you haven't heard yet, this is the deal...I am participating in a Christmas in July promotion on Etsy and the Etsymudteam. My "special" was up to me to choose. I spent some time and brainstorming (there's a blog entry on that) and came up with the idea to give a free ceramic gift tag to any purchase totaling $15 or more. Yes, that's right! FREE CERAMIC GIFT TAG!!!

These cuties measure about 2.5" by 1.75". They are a lovely shade of forest green. I have fired them to ^6 (about 2190` F), but left them unglazed which allows them to be written on using a Sharpie-type marker. I impressed each tag with leaves, some are grape leaves, maple leaves, tiny oak leaves, or ornamental yew (for that holiday look). If someone prefers a specific leaf impression, please let me know and I will try to accomodate, but if all the ones made with that leaf have already gone out, I'll let you know.

I also pulled a couple of my new beads out of the kiln already. I will write another blog on them over the next couple of days, but here's a sneak peek at a few:

Well, I've got to get moving on listing all my new items in my etsy shop! I have so much to share! You can visit my shop at http://www.jaritascreations.com/
