Hanging Around!

BF90712

Have you been wondering where I had got too? Well ...

I have been away to an exotic crafting Island somewhere hot and relaxing ... actually that is a lie ... I have n't been anywhere different from usual ... just real life and Christmas getting in the way of blogging!BF110712

I am back now and thought I would share this door hanger with you. It is completely inspired by Tim ... the man that can decorate a Christmas tree with an ATG gun and some blue tack while saving people from burning buildings and making inspirational Christmas tags at the same time :0) Not a 2009 Chrissie tag but Tim's very first Christmas tag way back in ... erm ... 2007!

I am loving these Maya Road acrylic snowflakes by the way ... and plan on using them at every available opportunity. If you would like to know what else I used ... it is all here.

Am I the only person on the planet that has n't actually started Christmas Shopping yet??? ... if I am ... please lie and pretend you have n't either ... Yes ... you can detect an element of panic in my voice!

Have a good week people!

Glad you're back, Linda--I was getting worried about you! Love your door hanger. As for the Christmas shopping--I have started, but not much. I also just got started on making Christmas cards! So don't feel too bad--you're not the only one in a panic! Take care and have a good week!

I have honestly not started xmas shopping....its now slightly worrying me but Im sure I'll get over it with a little lie down and a nice cuppa!

Does Sir Tim of Holtz wear his under garments over his trousers like a true super hero should...what a though,ay

Paula said...

Well, I love the tag..the snowflakes are gorgeous. Am enjoying this year's 12 days too actually. Although I haven't actually made any!! As for shopping. I did a bit online last week. And have a huge amount more to do. Don't panic. It makes me panic.

Helen said...

I missed your blogs. No, I haven't done any shopping either, although after last week, the cards are done (just need to write them....) Love the hanger, by the way!

Angie said...

So glad you are back ....missed you ... and your creativity
Love the door tags they would be fun on a kids door saying 'Santa Was Here'lol

Andrea said...

what a great door hanger, loving this Linda and if I told you I had done no shopping for Christmas you would know I was lying, after all presents and poking, you get my drift LOL xx

Nice to have you back, love the door hanger. What's Christmas without a bit of panic, who wants to be organised? where's the fun in that!

Dawn said...

LOVE the hanger, from one golf widow to another, at least when they're golfing we can craft in peace (and mess in my case)

Julie said...

What a fabulous tag, Linda! Love everything you did! I'm MUCH farther behind on my shopping this year--starting to get nervous!

Hope you're having a beautiful December day!

Deborah said...

Nope, not bought one present or made one card :-) Could someone move Christmas back a month!

Love the Tim tag.

Hels said...

Fab door hanger...love the papers, love the santa and love the fact that you haven't got your shopping done yet...cos I have done a bit...so it makes me feel better ROFL...missed ya hun xx

alcoholinky said...

Cath Wilson said...

Gorgeous tag, Linda - love it. And no, you're not the only one who hasn't yet started shopping for Christmas - or making Christmas cards (apart from the odd challenge)- so panicst thou not alone!

Jennie said...

xx

Sid said...

Good to have you back Linda, this doorhanger is fab !!

Effie said...

Great door hanger....love that stamp.

Jackie said...

It's wonderful, Linda - and no, I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet, either. Aghhh!

Karen said...

Hmmm, I'm with you on the shopping, or lack of, and beginning to panic! Haven't sent a single card yet either: Made lots, not written any!

Anyway, this is a gorgeous piece, as is the hanging below. Weather also dictates staying in the warm and crafting rather than getting soggy trawling round the shops: That's my excuse!

Debi said...

Absolutely stunning1!! Awesome job on it!

Allyson said...

I was beginning to get worried that you might have deserted us and run off with Sir (Master of the Universe) Tim. So nice to see you back and with more beautiful art for us to admire. Love the tag. My cards are almost done but I haven't actually sent any yet. I have to admit to some present shopping and the Turkey is ordered but that's about it. I was convinced for years that they move Christmas Day every year... how else can I explain my total lack of readiness for it. One year I was still putting up decorations on Christmas Day!

Good to see you post! had got to wondering what you were upto ;o) see how you are missed by the many! Love your door hanger, super-fabulous. As for Christmas, decided to let it all waft over my head, not easy to get in the mood when the mercury keeps rising and the shops are full of bikinis!
