Wishcasting Wednesday

Well here we are the end of the year and of course Jamie asks us:

What do you wish for 2010?

I thought this would be an easy one but things change and so must our wishes. I've let go of a few things in the past few weeks that I'd been holding on to even though I knew it was time to move on and let go. Why is it we hold on to thing when we know they may not be in our best interests? Is it just the security of knowing what it is as apposed to the unknown?

So for 2010 I wish for the strength and courage to move on and try new things. To believe in the process and the bigger picture.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Best Wishes

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is resting up today. Luckily the weather was fine for us here as we traveled from family to family on Christmas Eve and Day. Today we are glad of the rest and to be inside on this icy winter wonderland. It's beautiful from my door but treacherous on the roads. Keep warm and save. Have a wonderful weekend.

Sorry for the delay in posting. As you can probably guess I've just been busy getting ready for you know what.

So the winner is Jennifer Pearson Vanier. She writes a wonderful blog called Adventures in Mixes Media that I love to follow. Check it our here. And in warmer weather be sure to visit her wonderful Milk House Gallery near Prescott, On. She has so many wonderful things for sale to use for your next collage or altered art piece or what ever your creative fancy is, as well as her own collage pieces to inspire you.

Well this is a short post since I'm off to do more shopping today. The boys are home for the holidays and of course they haven't done any shopping yet. So wish us luck. They tell me they can get it all done in an hour.

Oh by the way I think I've finally gotten over the tag craze. I have made a few pieces of jewelry but they are presents so I'll have to wait to post them till after Christmas. But here's a clue as to what's new in my jewelry stash. It's very riveting!

Wishcasting Wednesday

Today's Wishcasting prompt is:
What do you wish to give?

This fits in so well with my blogging this week since I've been giving away tags to my commenter. Of course we all feel like giving this time of year and it feels so good to be giving back to my followers who support my creative side. The feedback has been wonderful and I hope to keep giving through my blog in the next year.

Another aspect of giving I enjoy and would like to continue doing is the sharing of my knowledge of crafty things. When I'm interested in a new product I dive in and want to know everything there is about it. How it work or what you can achieve with it. Why one product is better than another. And how can I push the limits of products. This helps me a great deal when I'm teaching but I also find myself sharing this information when I'm with a group of kindred spirits. I will continue to give this way as long as I have friends that would like to receive this gift.

Enjoy the giving season!

So you have till Friday evening to leave a comment before I do a random draw for the next tag.

Win a tag

Okay, the tag creating may be turning into an addiction. It's day 12 of Tim's tags but I don't think I can stop making them and I probably have more tags than I do presents to put them on!

Oh wow, it just came to me. I'd love to share some of my tags with my readers. So if you're out there, let me know what you think of my tags so far and I'll pick a random comment to win a tag. I'll try to get it to you before Christmas too. You have till Monday at noon to comment.

Here is a tag inspired by Tim's tag yesterday and one of my own.

Tim Holtz inspired cards

Well I can't keep up with Tim's great tags but I have been trying to fit in a bit of creative card making time. Some of my tags came out pretty similar but their are a few variations which is the fun part of creating. Some of them I've kept as tags and some I made into cards which is another reason I've gone crazy for these tags. They are very versatile. Here are a few cards and a tag I made this past week. Have you tried any of his tags yet? If not get at it!!

Now to send out some of these Christmas cards to some special people on my list.

Keep creating for Christmas!

Twelve tags of Christmas

Well it's that time of year again and Tim Holtz is at it again. He's sharing his 12 tags of Christmas with us to get the season started. I'm hoping to get some of my versions done too. Here is my first tag which is his day 3 tags. I've just made a few alterations to use what I already have. The flower was way cool to make. I was so glad I had some to be able to try it out. Let me know if you're joining in I'd love to see your tags.

Happy Tagging!

Wishcasting Wednesday

Okay I know it's Thursday but the week has gotten away from me and I guess I missed Wednesday. So on to the Wishcasting.

This week Jamie's Wishcasting prompt is:

What is your winter wish?

Well I didn't realize until this winter wish came my way but I've been in denial that it's winter yet. So I've decided to not think of the cold aspects of winter. My wish is to stay warm and cozy all winter long. To hibernate at home while working on my creative side. To concentrate on all those things I've put off all fall because I've been busy with workshops and shows. Winter is a great time for doing those things that their never seems to be time for. I'm going to make a list of all those things I've been meaning to get done or organized in the last few years and set January and February aside just for them. And if I don't get them done in that time I will then decide if it's worth doing it at all or if I need someone else to do it for me. Wow that may be a big order but I think by giving myself an ultimatum it may just work. These wishes really do bring out interesting thing for me.
What is your wish for this week?
