TAG - I'm IT!

Woopsie do!

Missed you! I guess I was still tired from the baby, I gave birth to, 13 years and several days ago... {hee hee}

Anywhoo, I'm back, friends! More Tim TAG art to share!




I can't even remember which one this is, but it's my 8th... {PHEW! - Imagine, I'm just replicating the work of the Holtz-man, not even c-r-e-a-t-i-n-g from scratch... and it's work.} My biggest challenge, is recreating Tim's fine pieces, without all of his supplies...

(Insert sarcastic "wooo!")





Anyway, this one was SUPER fun!


And, speaking of fun, I had a MARVELOUS time leading my wee-girl's 4H Arts & Crafts project the other day {Gee, maybe THAT'S why I'm still tired!}, as a guest project leader.... It was a super fun privilege to work with this enthusiastic group, let me tell ya! You might not be exactly surprised to learn that the project was influenced by this project... (I know, I know...)


Some pre-Valentine's Day collage...






And a lil' something for the "other folk".... MAN! {Never seem to have enough "craft" for them fellas...}




These are teeny tiny canvases, available at most craft stores... They are wrapped, backwards, so the "back side" of the canvas, is covered and the flaps are glued to the solid, canvas surface. The "opening" of the stretcher bars, becomes a framed opening - a teeny tiny curio. So CUTE! So fun! Soooo much possibility! Check out what my friend, Dana - PAPER DAYDREAM, did with the same "influence" here.... {She's done an EXCELLENT tutorial, as well, so get ready to DROOL!}

I'm tellin' ya - the fun never ends!

Hope you're having a wonderful day!
