Christmas Is In My Heart – Thank You’s and Last Winner Announced..

stbs-CIIMH-19

Yesterday was the last day of Christmas Is In My Heart and I hope you enjoyed the projects featured…

Yesterday was a fun-filled day full of fabulous treats. To the left of me is just a small sampling of what you missed  on thursday so go on… go see em… Can you find the projects featured in the picture?.

It’s never fun when a blog hop ends, but one can think about the fun they had, the ideas that came to mind from the creativity of others who generously share their talents.

A blog hop is a lot of work to not only organize, but the participation also requires work. Bloggers must in some cases, spend money, create projects, and spend time coming up with an idea that fits within a blog hops guidelines. I personally wish to thank all of the bloggers who participated, many have extremely busy schedules at the moment, not only because of Christmas, but because of other obligations, such as the Quiltmaker 100 hop. It’s a true testament to them that they love participating as much in a blog hop as they do meeting their other obligations to their blogs.

I’d like to thank all of the visitors who come to the bloggers websites, we need you to come just as much as bloggers like showing off their talents.

I’d like to thank the Fat Quarter Shop, whom has generously offered giveaways for each of my events. Without their generosity and spirit of giving, we couldn’t offer something special for you to give up your time visiting us.

Christmas Is In My Heart… Let’s Talk Tags…

stbs-2015-Tags-0243

stbs-2015-Tags-0239I love Christmas Tags, so fun, so different, so many ways to create them.

They are these tiny little pieces of paper that one uses to place a To.. and a From on, to let the lucky recipient know who gave them a gift. Sometimes it’s a secret sister, sometimes it’s from a secret admirer, even family and friends get in on the act by giving gifts at Christmas. Yes, you can get away with handing the gift directly to the person without placing a tag on it, but really, how many times would you do that. Perhaps you used a card instead.. if you bought that card you’ve just spent a small fortune to let someone else’s thoughts let that person know how you feel, but a tag, a mere small piece of paper just by itself says so much more.

Imagine a gift, where you made the tag, the wrap and even the gift, every single part of that gift meant for that person and that person alone… purchased cards, wrap, and gifts just don’t do that same feeling .. at least not for me anyway. I love handmade gifts, I love fabric to wrap gifts in and I love home made tags, but it’s pretty rare to see them.

In my days of selling at Craft Markets, I could sell gift tags all year long and they were always my biggest seller, and I always ran out of them.  Tags are an inexpensive item that people have no problem buying, because tags can be used over and over unless you actually write on them, and then the tag becomes specific to the person your giving the gift to for years to come, and perhaps even their children who they might name after themselves.

So as my project for today, I’m going to show you my best tips for making tags.

I know, your thinking, tags are simple, and yes, they are, but can you make 100 tags in an hour?  I can… Curious how I do it?
