Crafty Tags

Every year, I end up making my own tags for my presents. Some years, it has been recycled Christmas cards from previous years or making a scrapbooking card to add to each present. This year, I used a tag .jpg that I found free on the internet, added a picture I wanted to use or a scan of the wrapping paper to make my own tags.

Presents cut out

Punch a hole in the tag, and then I slid it down the ribbon and added some elements with my scrapbooking punches.




Hope everyone had a nice Christmas or however you celebrate and enjoy this holiday season. Time off work to relax maybe or just enjoy every day as it comes. 🙂

If you don’t have a tag to use, you can find some at HERE  compliments of The Coffee Shop Blog to download. They’re useful for other holidays as well whenever you’re tagging a gift. Have fun creating your own. I’d love to see some of your ideas so share away in the comments or with a link to your site.




My Yearly Gift

My gift arrived right on time…….

A few years ago, my middle child (son) had to move back home for a bit, and while here he ordered bulbs to plant in my flower bed. He has since moved away again, and every year, it is like getting that gift all over again.  I did separate and move the bulbs last year, but was wondering if they would return. They did.

My Lily gift from the son. 🙂
