12 Tags of Christmas #7 – Funkie Junkie Style

Plaid, oh plaid, oh plaid! Hello to everyone as we embark on Thanksgiving week. This week brings a mix of Christmas and Thanksgiving to the house.

12 Tags of Christmas #5 – Funkie Junkie Style

I’m back with tag #5 for Linda’s Funkie Junkie Christmas Tag Challenge of 2017! The challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique and there’s still time for you to join in on the challenge. You can find the rules on Linda’s blog . Linda’s week #5 tag inspired me to focus on Santa Claus, wood, and the new postage stamps from Tim Holtz. So, that was a lot of stuff to fit on a tag. I was trying to figure out a cute way to use the Tim Holtz wood slices but was not having a lot of success – I know...

12 Tags of Christmas #4 – Funkie Junkie Style

I’m back with Tag #4 from Linda’s 12 Tags of Christmas . The challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique . For this tag, I swung a bit toward tartan. I was inspired by Linda’s tag to use a silhouette and the idea of going to a concert, the theatre, or a show. Initially, when I die cut the image from Tim Holtz Sizzix Dapper die, I wanted the outline to be in the tartan paper from the Christmas Paper Stash. And then it just sat on my craft room table. I just was not working for me. So, I left...

12 Tags of 2017 – Funkie Junkie Style (Week #3)

Phew – what a weekend! I managed to spend some time in my craft room trying to get things organized (I’m still dealing with the leftovers of the move…). This weekend I wound up with an “extra hour” to do stuff and I managed to bake a pie (apple and cranberry with from-scratch pastry), make a pumpkin-pecan quick bread, go for a long run, and a tag! Okay, so that was a bit more than a hour but the extra hour helped. Tag #3 for Linda’s 12 Tags of Christmas 2017 involved a whole lot of two colors – red...

Christmas Tag #2 – Funkie Junkie Style

Today was a rather windy day here so I stayed inside and worked on the second tag for Linda’s Funkie Junkie Christmas Tag Challenge . While I’m four, soon to be five, tags behind Linda graciously lets us submit tags until the whole challenge closes. You can find all of the rules for the challenge on Linda’s Blog. So hopefully I will be able to get caught up! The challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique . This second tag by Linda was very creamy and had a lot of vintage character to it...

Christmas Tag #1 – Funkie Junkie Style

Hello! Okay, so I’m about six weeks behind on Linda’s Christmas Tag challenge. Nothing like starting halfway through – right? I decided that I needed to get my Christmas hat on and get into gear for the holidays. While I love Thanksgiving, I know that in order to be ready for Christmas I need to get moving! So last night I came home, went for a run with the pup, and then straight to my craft room while my beloved was making dinner. As he called me to dinner, I was just finishing up my first tag for...
