WOYWW #385

I keep telling myself to go into the Command Center and just play, but for some reason I feel overwhelmed.  I never wanted to create pieces because I had to and with these holiday boutiques coming up, that's how I've been feeling lately.  Although I love spending time at these boutiques meeting new people and just hanging out with my daughter, I think this may be my last year for them.  I'm pretty sure I've said that before, but maybe this time I'll mean it.

Ok, enough's what's on my work desk this Wednesday:

...the makings of some holiday gift tags.

I usually make these for my own use, but last year I packaged some up and sold out of all of them.  It was a total afterthought, but people really like them.  I'm also participating in a gift tag swap with my crafting friends.

A little bit of stamping, doodling, punching, Cricut-ing, and embellishing and viola!  Here are a few samples for this year and some from previous years.  (Yes, I pull off these tags and reuse them year after year - why not, we're giving gifts to the same people!)

Do you have a favorite?

  1. great looking tags and I can see why they sell so quickly! I usually try to go to the craft fairs around the holidays but it seems the past few years most has been the same as in previous years or so darn expensive I can't afford to buy anything. Hope you have a great week. Vickie #11

  2. Hi Dorlene. Love the tags with the holly on as my favourites. Well done on selling out last year - trust they go well this year, too.
    Take care. God bless.

  3. Very nice tags. They look like fun to make. I really like the snowman one though they are all nice.

    Happy WOYWW

  4. I think your tags are great. It's no wonder they sold out last year! As for a favorite? I really like the ones you're creating now with the holly. I think they're really lovely.
    Here's hoping all goes well at the boutique.

  6. I love love love handmade tags, and it seems I'm not the only one! They're lovely. Sorry I'm so late! Have a great week! Heather (waywardgypsy) #51?

  7. I think it´s a great idea to start making
    tags for Christmas! I only made cards never tags
    for that occasion. Maybe I should try...

    Happy creative week!
