grift: verb

to obtain (money) illicitly (as in a confidence game)
to acquire money or property illicitly


"Grift" was born in the argot of the underworld, a realm in which a "grifter" might be a pickpocket, a crooked gambler, or a confidence man—any criminal who relied on skill and wits rather than physical violence—and to be "on the grift" was to make a living by stings and clever thefts."
Making a few tags for the store, my only Easter tag that I had in there, has already sold! I don't know why, but I am always humbled when they buy my tags :)

Cath over at Moxie Fab has us all thinking about home decor projects.
 I took some tea light candles and wrapped some washi tape around them and then had tons of fun embellishing them. Warning here folks, this may become addictive. They are so cute and tiny! lol I can picture them in the guest bathroom or out on my balcony...either way I can't wait to make some more.

That bunny's tale is so cute!!!

MaryH said...

I can easily see why your tags are a popular item. This one is just adorable. Fab decor idea on the tea lights decorated with washi tape & embellies too. Would be a sweet touch in a bathroom for sure! Rain in the Upstate this morning..very gray & dreary. Guess the NC mtns are about the same. TFS

Your bunny tag is so delightful Sandee. Not sure why you should be surprised that your creations sell?!! My favourites today are those tealights, particularly the two on the bottom. Such a simple yet totally effective idea - I must do some of these!! Thanks so much for the inspiration.
A second wonderful entry in our Spring challenge - thanks for joining us again at Anything But A Card!
