No-Hassle Tassels

Template/Embellishment
Commercial Use
Tassels I
-FREEBIE-
 
Hi, it's me again!  Back with a freebie for you - here are tassels for personal or commercial use. As usual, they are png files created at 300 ppi, in 12 colors as well as in light and dark gray for recoloring.  Drop shadows are for preview purposes only.  I hope you enjoy them!  Thank you for the nice comments on yesterday's tutorial - I'm glad it was useful even to some of you! When I use a grayscale item such as this, I like to use overlays to recolor it rather than the recoloring brush or color replacement.  In this case, I use the color over the object by using the layer style to create a color overlay, selecting the color, then setting the blend mode of the color overlay to overlay (or sometimes, if I'm trying for a deeper color, I'll set it to color burn or play with other blend modes.)  Have fun - I hope you enjoy them!

Notes for the day:
 
I had a pretty relaxing day today - I got to sleep in, then catch up on paperwork and phone calls while my parents took my girls to a "Mystery Science" class at the St. Louis Science Center.  The class involved trying to solve a mystery from a mock crime scene - what fun!
 
I had a talk with Lydia's allergist today to let her know about her worsening nut reactions - turns out that based on more recent studies over the past few years, the allergist actually recommends giving the Epi-Pen for nut-allergic patients much earlier in the reaction now.  Now, I'm supposed to give her the pen then go to the emergency room as soon as she has the first tiny hives after ingesting something that may have contained nuts!  This is going to be a drastic change for us, as previously we had only been told to give Benadryl, observe her, and use the Epi-Pen only if her reaction became severe - i.e., trouble breathing!    So, if any of you have nut-allergic children, or have nut allergies yourself, you might want to check with your allergist to see what their current recommendations are.
 
Have a great evening,
Jeanie

Thanks for the tassels Jeanne! I bet they were fun to extract! Glad you have the latest from the allergy doctor. Isn't it a shame there isn't a vaccination you can take for allergies. Of course, I would probably be allergic to it since mine are mostly to chemicals and antibiotics. So wonderful that you have good supportive family to help you out. Happy to hear you had a good day!

Thank you for the info about the Epipen. Both my children have food allergies, one of them to peanuts, so we always carry Epipens with us, hoping that we won't have to use them. We'll check with our allergist to find out what we should do... our appointments are only once a year, so we appreciate your reminder to keep up to date with things... Thanks also for your freebies. May God bless you and your family always!

Thank you for sharing the tassels. My sister loves victorian stuff, so I'm sure I'll be using them in a LO for her in the near future. Thanks for the freebies. Enjoy readying your stories also.

Aww, thanks! I've been working on a kit to coordinate with my living room (all those pictures to scrap, LOL!) and was wondering how to take a picture of my tassels. I think you saved me the trouble! Glad you had a restful day.

Love the tassels! Glad you are having a pleasant recovery, hope you are getting stronger by the day. Epi-pen, I actually get a two part one now, so that I can use one part than the other 15 minutes later. It gives more time to get to the emergency room. I believe they are what used to be junior size, and that's what at least some doctors give "big people" now as an approach. I haven't had to use them, but am allergic to bees so have been instructed to keep a current set handy.
