Tag Trash

Have you  ever not been able to get to your work table or your "stuff". Well yesterday and today is one of those days.  This tag is made from nothing but "trash" stuff that was already cut, tied or laying around on my craft table.  If you look at the pictures below, you can see why.

We are getting ready for the next workshop which means we always get so much done.  I love it because it is a time that Jon starts crossing things off my "honeydo" list.  (smile)  Do you know what I mean?

 The floor in my craft room/workshop/shipping room needed to be painted and this is a perfect time to get it done.  So, we moved everything to one side of the room and Jon painted it with a cement stain. 
Everything moved to the other side of the room. And I can't get to my "stuff".
We were able to get the other side ready this morning , so Jon could mop it before he left for work. It will be ready to paint tonight and in 2 hours we will be able to walk on it and can start putting things back
Won't I have fun shipping today?  You are looking at my shipping table. Yikes!

And the winner of last week's Tag Challenge is Patti J. Congratulations Patti! Your tag is beautiful!


You have until Sunday, March 13, 9:00 PM to enter the Tag Challenge. Anything goes. You can make whatever kind of tag you want to make, any color, use any stamp...your own thing. Then once the time ends to enter a tag, the voting will start and will last until Tuesday morning March 15, 6:00 AM.



This is simply a fun thing and something to help you have tags for your gifts or even a tag to send to a friend. I know, I am sure enjoying it!!! I love making tags!


The weekly winner, (the tag with the most votes) will be sent an award badge to post on their blog which will show them as a winner. In June there will be a drawing for a grand prize that will be awarded to one of the weekly winners. Won't it be nice to have a head start on all those tags needed throughout the year! I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations. If you need help in posting your tag, please contact me by email or calling 574 656 3663.

Thank you Joan! So happy I got to play along! Your tag is wonderful - amazing what type of "trash" accumulates where we work! Speaking of work, how do you ever find the time to make a tag? lol... Looks like you've got a keeper - that's a big floor to stain and mop! Hugs...

I like to challenge myself to use just scraps too. It is so fun. Great crafting space. Oh, I would love to have so much room. Your tag is very sweet.

Great tag...and you have inspired me to make a tag from "trash"...so fun!! Looks like you have a great LARGE space to work in...my space is kind of big as I use the former master bedroom, but it so full of paper stuff and sewing stuff it seems small...sigh, I have way too many interests...see ya in a couple of weeks!!

Joan, your craft room pictures look like my whole house right now. We're redoing our living room and of course that leads to another area to another area. Hope we can find everything when we get to put things back together. I'm finding some interesting things too. :)
