Tag, You're It!

Last year at Artfest, Bee was handing out special Artfest dog tags as her trade. She asked that anyone who received one alter it and then bring it to Artfest 2007 to show. Up until yesterday, I had mine safely tucked away in a safe spot. (I am sure you are all familiar with that "safe spot"-it's that place you stash something important and then do mental gymnastics trying to remember where it is.)

Anyway, I remembered where it was (tucked in amongst my handmade book in a basket) and got to work altering it. I had so much fun coming up with this funky pendant and after I was done, I wished I had more dogtags to play with!

So...if any of you reading this have one of Bee's dog tags, please take some time to work on it and bring it with you to Artfest! She is hoping there will be lots to share-I believe she gave out over 100! Bee has set up a yahoo group for thos who are participating. You will find it here.

I love what you made!! I have a dogtag, but had forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder! I had no idea what to do with it, and your picture gave me inspiration--not that I will be doing anything like yours, just to see how someone else altered theirs inspired me!

thanks, Gwen D

Just darling, Lelainia. I like that it's so much silver and not a lot of other colors to distract from the metal. Can't wait to see it in person! Hugs, Shari
