On the 1st day of Christmas....

My take on Tim's 1st tag....

my true love gave to me...the 12 days of Christmas Tags by Tim Holtz!! This year I am determined to follow along with many, many others as Tim refreshes and revitalizes our Christmas Spirit along with reminding us about our long forgottten art supplies and tried and true techniques with a few new ones thrown in. I love how Tim ( I met him only once but he is a friend to all) encourages us to make the tags are own and to use what we have on hand. And for me, I am blessed with a studio full of "on hand" trinkets, treasures, ribbons, inks, paper , die cutting systems (Yes I said "systems") and more. After today's tag, I still needed to get a few things..I realized I hadn't embossed in a while...needed an embossing pad, white embossing powder-I had every color under the sun but white...imagine that?? I will wait on the pine cone die but oooh, how I need that...perhaps want is the better word.

I can't wait to see what his tag is tomorrow. Did you know that he makes the tag the night before so it is ready to go up at midnight? He like the creative pressure....I like the creative calm so I'll gladly wait until I am up with the chickens to begin to create with Tim... I'll post my pictures as I complete the tags...wish me luck to finish each one in the same day...wish y'all were here with me creating and celebrating the season of giving....A bigger wish is that you will find a peace that passes understanding, a joy that is boundless and a love that knows no limits..I hope you will find our Savior under that tree, in a manger, bringing us light, life and love.

For unto us a child is born...And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
