Great outdoors on the brain!

Yikes its been awhile. Our Christmas was good. Hectic as usual. I can't wait till things quite down and get back to normal. I have been making lots of tags. Everything is nature inspired. I am planning a trip to go to a cabin in the woods. I do not know where yet. I just know I REALLY need to find some time to get back to nature. I tend to go a little (ok a lot) crazy if I don't get my nature fix ever so often.

Christmas Fun in Blog Land

First of all thank you SO much to all your comments! It was wonderful to hear from friends and meet some bloggers I did not know. I will be visiting every ones blog soon!
Next, I have been having so much fun on two awesome blogs. These two talented people are having a 12 days of Christmas tutorial.
The first one is Teresa McFayden. For a fee you can get all sorts of tip, ideas, and techniques. Plus she is just so darn cute and funny. I made the collages in the pics from some of her techniques.
The next one is Tim Holtz ! He makes the coolest products EVER! He is having a 12 days of Christmas tag tutorial. And are they gorgeous! He is also having a daily give away.
Thank you all again for all your sweet, wonderful comments!
P.s. the tags pictured are sample of a bunch of new sets in my ETSY shop.
