New Tag Challenge

Tuesday, April 12, 2011
My family all arrived starting last Thursday and we have been cleaning out Mom's house to get it ready for an auction on June 11th.  That is why I have been missing in action.  What a job---96 years of  "stuff" and mom saved everything.  We found birthday cards to me when I was 4 years old.  Does that tell you anything?
It has been an extremely hard time as I am sure many of you can relate .  We have the garage yet to do and then we will have everything pretty well done.

Selma has been so wonderful helping me out during this time and she has created another gorgeous tag for Joan's Gardens #14 Weekly Tag Challenge. Don't you just love it!!!

She tells you all about it on her blog.  Be sure and check it out here.  Also, keep scrolling down as she has been very busy  creating so many beautiful things. 

 Thanks so much Selma for filling in for me this week and for all you do!!!

You have until Sunday, April 17, 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 April 19, 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.

This is so beautiful! I don't know when you found the time or energy to be creative. I'm so glad that you have Selma. She's a blessing to us all, but I know, especially to you! Good luck on the 11th. The auction will be so difficult for you. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous creation with us!

My comment today is about the love your mother had for you and how she valued everything little thing she got from you over her life. What a job to know that she did this. Yes, it is a lot of "stuff," but she loved you.

My heart goes out to you and your family, Joan, during this difficult time. I've been through it too many times and it doesn't get any easier. What a wonderful feeling to know your Mom saved so many things that brought her good memories, especially of you and your siblings. I shudder to think what my kids will have to clean out when I'm gone. I'm a saver too. Every little scrap is precious and holds so many memories. Stay strong.

I've already had to sort out a lifetime of my mother's belongings, so I understand exactly what you're going through. Each time you find something like the card she saved, you shed a tear and gather up those precious memories to keep within your heart forever. It's a blessing for you now to know that your mother saved all those little things that were priceless and important to her! Knowing how much you were cherished and loved is a huge reward in itself. (hugs)
