WOYWW AGAIN!! CAN'T BE SURELY.......

It is isn't it? It's another of those Wednesdays when  we all sneak about looking in each other's drawers LOL, and through cupboards, boxes, scrapbooks, old shoes... well not quite in old shoes, not sure I could stand that, but you get the drift. I doubt our leader Julia could stand poking about in old shoes, but she is a dab hand at getting us to spend half the week sneaking about in fellow crafter's stash and seeing what they are up to. I have to admit that I didn't manage to call round very many at all last week, I do hope I can call round this week. I'll do my best.
Here is my workspace right now:
The remnants of yesterday's activity whilst making the February tag for Tim's 12 tags of 2012. Yippeee! am I a happy girl. I adore the 12 tags of Christmas but do have to work that busy time of year around them. That was particularly rushed last year because we went away on the 19th. To have the excitement of making a Tim tag every month will, I hope, get me stimulated to craft more in the 4 weeks that follow each one.
Can I just point out the pack of honeycombe paper on my space. Tim used this to make a heart. Me, being me, went straight on the web and found this at Hobbycraft, so off I popped and got some. Too late for my tag but it will be there for the future.
For those of you interested in what my DH has been up to since he sold all his metal working machines and tools and turned his shed into a music room complete with 4 Fender Stratocaster guitars, here is the latest pic:

Oh goodness! Who said 'oldies' don't have a life eh????

Love the picture of your other half. Fabulous! That's the way to go!
Good to see you are going to enjoy the tags by Sir Tim. I think it is a good idea as Christmas always seems so rushed and I have 1001 other things to do (not to mention cards to make). Bet I still play catch up though. LOL
Don't forget to call in if you haven't already and check out my blog candy - it closes late tonight and I should be drawing tomorrow. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Neet 29

Love the tag you made & love the picture of you know who. He looks a contented man there!
You're right - how can it be Wednesday again?! Still, that means the eekend is nearly upon us...oops - the "W" on this keyboard is acting up, but maybe "eek-end" is the right ord, or word! Lol! Lindsay x x x

Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing. Don't forget my blog candy is still up for grabs so drop by and leave a comment and make sure you are a follower. Vickie #64

Lisa said...

Wow you go! I also just looked at Tim Holtz 12 tags and thought how great. I loved the honey comb thing, never thought you could get the paper! Thanks for sharing. Not much for shopping on line so someday hope to find the honeycomb paper here. Hope your husband is enjoying his new found love of music!!

Your hubby looks quite content in his newly done man-cave! I just checked out Tim's 12 tags of 2012. I never got into make the Christmas ones not being that fond of Christmas, but tags for other occasions, count me in. I need to find the larger sized ones he uses. The ones I have on hand are too small. Thanks for sharing!

Sounds like your husband is having a blast doing what he loves!
Good on him...

Thanks for the tip about the 12 tags of 2012...will check that out soon as I get through visiting all the blogs!

Julia Dunnit said...

Honeycomb paper may be a blast from the past, but really, it was just waiting for the invention of our home die cutting machines, huh! I agree about TH tags, much better unrushed through the year. Great pic of your chap...bet he can absorb hours in that shed now...isn't a hobby a wonderful thing!

Ohhh Snap said...

Love your tag! And all those inkers! Your hubby looks so happy in his music space. Thanks for the heads up about the metal bit falling out of the TH ruler, I'll keep an eye on it and the superglue handy :D. #27
