New Year - day two!

No, REALLY!

{Heh heh!}

I'm not going to act like I made a New Year's resolution to post a wee bit more often....

But it IS the second day of 2011, and let's just say that I'm eating right AND I'm posting, AGAIN....

Go FIGURE!




I'm ALSO sharing my SECOND tag from, well, YOU probably know WHERE! {!} With the holidays behind me, this type of crafting feels like a spa treatment! You know, like how you can take a bubble bath... that's nice. Or, you can be immersed in a bath with sea salt, and enzymes from the dead sea, lavender buds and chamomile.... Listening to the "essence" of your favorite muzak, sipping a grand beverage, just to get ready for a L O N G massage appointment with a GIFTED masseuse of your favorite variety...

THAT'S how much fun it is to be creating my version of Tim's tags..., vs. just my every day craft...





I don't know if you lose your mind with joy, watching Tim make magic with just about every conceivable piece of craft material - AND THEN SOME! {I doooooooo!} But, even if it gets you just a little jazzed about crafting.... I HIGHLY recommend incorporating even SOME of his techniques into, say, a card a day... This year, I'm not killing myself in an attempt to recreate nearly every step, but rather just being influenced by the final product and then just using WHATEVER materials I can lay my hands on, easily.... I'm just sayin' ... IT'S A BLAST!

Okay, I don't mean to be preachin' to the choir - I KNOW you know what I mean - I'm just worried about YOU! I hope you REALLY are giving yourself permission to play! REALLY! {Yeah, I know - just humor me...}

Since I've totally got my craft onnnnnn, I can't resist sharing another little painting I completed recently.....

TODAY - it went to a new home! Just the kind of thing to make a girl like me declare:






YEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

Yep, friends - that NEW YEAR thing, is totally workin' for me right now!

I sure hope it's great for you, too! Thanks for stopping by!
