Tagged

Last Monday I had the crafty bug and made this tag.

Now some people probably could have had this put together in a matter of minutes. Me, I take more like an hour or more. I have to pick my papers, rearrange, change my mind and start from scratch. Not only do I have a hard time putting it all together but I make a HUGE mess pulling out papers, glue, scissors, ribbons, stamps inks and assorted other things. For me paper crafting is a very long and messy process.

Today I doubt there will be more messes made. I have some errands to run, a vet visit for Gibbs who is due for another shot and then I really should clean up that mess I made last Monday

Very nice, you should see the craft room here.

I make a mess and don't make any crafts. Besides, it isn't as much fun if you don't make a mess. You have a great day Ann.

That tag turned out great!
You should have seen the mess I made when I did my Halloween papercraft back in October ;-)

It's never easy to "throw" stuff like that together. I'm like you--I have to think and plan and practice before I get a good one done. It's cute!! It was worth the effort, Ann.

Goodness - I need to catch that crafty bug and get down into my much neglected craft room!

messy but FUN, right? i think crafts are about the doing of them as much as the end product.. the only craft i do is in the computer, but it is the doing it not the finish that i like best.

The result is beautiful! But you want to be sure to use that for someone who will keep it and reuse it for 50 years, not someone who will toss it in the wastebasket!

Yes, but it's perfect. Love this.

Have a fabulous day. My best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

Love the tag, very cute! Poor Gibbs, has to get another shot :(

It looks complicated - just an hour or so? I've spent days editing one photo - but then I am not as creative as you...It's very pretty.

Aren't messes the sign of great craftyness? :)

I just wish I had a crafty bug in me. LOL Cute tag! I'm wrapping gifts today. :)

I love the 'old world charm' of this newly created masterpiece you made Ann.

The mess....errrr, ummmm, will be there when you feel up to it. No worries. 100 years from now, it'll make no difference.

I love your crafted things, you seems to have so many ideas, that doesn't always come easy. So keep doing what you're doing :) Enjoy your week

Craftiness is indeed a most insidious disease. I would hope for you to recover someday, but it is looking more and more like it may be way too late for you.

After reading how much work it is, I think I will just buy some...LOL!...:)JP

Love it! Half the fun for me is rummaging around in the craft boxes - I always find something I forgot I had.
