Tag, You're It!

Hi, guys! Let me start today by filling some of you in about my love for all things distress and Tim Holtz. He is the king of distress and all things grunge. If you know me personally, I am sure you have heard me go on and on about his crafting and his art. I think he is extremely talented and has a fabulous blog and line of products. I love that he shares his talents and techniques with us.

He decided to stop his 12 Tags of Christmas which he had done for quite a few years. You can read about it on his blog. He announced in February that he will do a tag a month for 2012; that way everyone would be able to do them instead of stressing out during the busy holiday season. I was disappointed at first as I have enjoyed this each holiday season. But when I thought about it, I realized that I never could complete all 12 myself. So I have decided to take part in his tag a month for this year. So far he has done 2 (February and March). I am so happy that I was able to complete both of them. I had a blast learning new techniques and using products like honeycomb paper that I have never used before.

My nephew Tom loved making a tag with me this Christmas. He heard me talking about making them and asked to make one, too. I was thrilled with his positive attitude when I told him the tag was rather complicated and had a great many steps. He told me he would do the steps he could and skip anything he couldn't. He had a blast! It was truly a fun day. Here he is with his creation!

Have a great day. Hope you find a few moments in your day to do what you love!

Winnie - thanks so much for the message you left on my blog; we must have the same sense of humor. The thought of cupids run amuck STILL cracks me up. I LOVE your butterfly! It looks so cool. And I love your nephew had stuck with his obviously fun aunt throughout the whole process. Enjoy!
