Song lyric's that inspire

Happy Holidays Everyone:

Over at Creative Carte Blanche this months theme is "Be you- Song lyrics inspiration"

I had to think on this for a while because like some of you I listen to different music depending what I'm doing!!  Cleaning is usually Van Halen ( yes I just aged myself) , Laundry and mending is more soothing like movie theme music Harry Potter , When i need to get myself out of a funk or just motivated my go to is Masterpiece by Jesse J.  This page I've had done for awhile.  One problem no matter what I did I couldn't get one of the lyrics ( the one on the bottom) in focus.  I tried everything so I'm just going to type it.  " You haven't seen the best of me I'm still working on my masterpiece"

I love this song!!  I blare it to my daughters dismay.  I although call it payback for all the times she's gives me a early wake- up call .  hope you like it.

Journey Christmas tag

Happy Holidays Everyone:
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!!

This months tag for the  Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2016 became a journey of cleaning out my craft room to find my shadow press station.  So now with my room cleaner and my tools organized I got to work.  I didn't have any Christmas shadow press.  So I used Journey.  Because at this time of year are we all not on some kind of journey?  The hunt for the perfect gift, the adventure trying to find it at a good price,  and the stress of getting it all done in time.  All I can say is thank you  Amazon prime.  I got out my die cutting machine out ( vagabond)  and cut two tags one for a base and the other out tim's textile surfaces ( burlap).  got my holiday knit stencil and applied candied apple distress ink on the burlap.  Now to crafting I then dug around and found several packs of Tim Holtz paper with Christmas themes to make my tiles with.  I used bottle alcohol ink on and idea-ology star, applied some jute string and arrow from- yep idea-ology.  I used a wreath and bells from my stash and more jute on the top.  I wanted the journey to stand out more so I used red stickies to sparkle it up a little.

I hope you like it:
