This and That!

PACSPear Catching up on Facebook last night ... as you do ... I found myself tagged in a few piccies and decided to share this one with you ...

There we were sat eating our lunch at the Paper and Co Show ... when Celine passed around the moustache's for the main event photo! Sadly I could n't find mine and had to improvise ... but I rather like this picture of Natalie, Erin, Vikki and myself ... which is a rare event in itself ... me liking the picture .... not Natalie with a moustache :0) ... perhaps it is because half my face is hidden behind a rather delicious semi eaten pear :0)Tim110

Well that was the That ... now for the This. The time has arrived ... it is officially Christmas ... and the reason I know this is because Lord Tim of Holtz has begun his 12 Tags of Christmas. You know Tim ... the man that organises the elves at the North Pole ready for the big day while composing multi lingual Christmas Carols with just an "r" from a tape runner and a sprinkling of perfect pearls.

I have decided that this year I will ... of course be taking part with the composition of all the tag elements ... however instead of spending day 13 in a Timmy Tagless depression ... I will indeed use all of the elements to make a larger home decor piece. Until I have seen all 12 tags I have no clue what I will end up with ... but I find the whole prospect very exciting!

Here are my bits from Day One ... I had to improvise ... no white fluffy doodah here ... so I used white enamel accents sprinkled with fine glitter for my snow ... I did n't have any mini tinsel stuff either ... so I made my Christmas Wreath with Grunge paper and the Regal Crest Die .... yes I know it looks nothing like Holly ... but if you screw yours eyes up and tilt your head to the left ... well it sort of does!

I need to get on ... I have a gazillion things to do ... oh and check out Tag Two ... I have been meaning to make a customised Ink pad for the last 100 years ... and get this ... today is definitely the day ...

Laters!

Lovely interpretation of the tag. I love today's tag by Tim - the customised ink pad is a genius idea and one I will be trying soon. I have ordered a lot of new stash but with 2 feet of snow and no mail/parcel deliveries, I can only watch the rest of blog land get creative. Looking forward to seeing what you do with today's tag!

I like it. Love the idea of making all 12 into one big piece. I haven't done day one... jumped straight to day two, but am thinking about it... I always think about it... getting around to actually DOING it is a different thing!
