I love banners!

I'm thinking of moving to these apartments...but they're in Spain.

I've gone a little banner crazy myself, thanks to the talented bloggers that share my love of all things banner-ish. 
My latest fear is that they'll go out of style, and force me to follow the trend...and stop making them. 
Yes, my greatest fear is the demise of banners.

I hang them everywhere.
I tend to hang them on private property...restaurants, bars, etc.

I've forced my daughter-in-law to help me.
I have no shame.

TeacherGirl's bachelorette party needed a banner.

I've done the fabric banners...

Yes, I'm responsible for the demise of many a tree...

 And when I'm feeling feisty, I'm not afraid to cover someone's art.

I can't seem to stop.

They're inside and outside...

I made this one with the material from a maternity sundress. 
I feel very thrifty and green when I look at it. 
In my mind, It makes up for the numerous paper pennants I crank out daily.

And just in case you'd like to jump on the banner train, here's a few of my favorite links that will get you started.
Poke around these blogs and you'll find something you'll want to try!
