Welcome to my post for Papertrey's October blog hop. A day early cuz I've got something to share with ya'll tomorrow ;) The deets? It's all about tags. At least five of 'em. Quite the practical challenge, IMHO.
Now you may have seen a shot of my extremely messy laundry/craft room in the video Nichole posted to wrap up the 2013 Stamp-a-Faire. I never actually saw it because Germany has a hissy fit about some music in videos and copyright issues, so I couldn't view this particular video. But my bud, Kelly G., told me she recognized my messy room in the video. How embarrassing!
This is a shot of it today. May I add that it's orderly - bought myself a silverware organizer to hold my little bits. Since it's easier to move to the side, maybe I'll iron more often. Not. Anyhoo, it's those bits that this challenge helped me to reduce. Yippie! Not the best work I've ever done, but I'm happy that some of these pieces have found a place in life and it's not on my ironing board.
If I had to pick a fave it'd be this one. Considering it started as a zillion little leftovers from projects I kinda like how it turned out.
Looking forward to see what you've created, especially how you treat the ribbons/twine for the top. I started using Maile B.'s method awhile ago, but hope to discover something new.
TIP: Those little Cutter Bee tweezers (next to the scissors in the photo) are great when you're tying tiny bows - like having a third hand.
Enjoy the hop. Tomorrow.
