I have a thing for old brass musical instrument mouth pieces and when Sue showed us her stash of them and mentioned something about tooting your own horn my creative gears started turning...
Heres my artistic take on some self-esteem fun.
I fashioned these using Tuba and a Trumpet mouth pieces and marching band music clips hold the messages.
I typed the message on old ice tickets using my vintage electric typewriter. I think it would be even more effective to hand write the message - gives it more of a personal affirmative touch.

texasjunkermom writes: How many ways can I tell you that I love this idea?! The old lyres combined with the brass mouthpieces look great, and the positive sentiments just have to make one feel good. Great post. Posted: 2:57 pm on June 16th
monakent writes: What a novel idea! I adore the fact that some of the cards were positive comments about one's self. You can never have enough affirmative sayings for me!!! The mouthpieces are works of art on their own, but with positive comments, like you have, they become more special to the viewer.

As always ~ you and your projects rock!!!!
