I Have An Addiction

I have a "thing" for tags. I have said it before and I suppose I will continue to say it. I LOVE THEM!
I made them and I buy them from others. I use them and I give them away. I tried to stop, but I am sick, I can't.

Cutting out shapes and playing with ink and color, somehow calms me. If I am stressed, or tied of playing around with the sewing machine, I find stamping fun and restful.

I am a weaver and so it's no surprise I would have a basket tag.

You don't have to be a basket lover to appreciate the beauty of this tag. It's just cute!!

This paper screamed a little Paris to me. Notice the blue jewels? Fun.....

Tags are perfect as gifts or on just about anything you can think of.

How about a wine lover? My sister in law would love these. She enjoys giving a fine wine to friends, and these tags would be wonderful tied around the neck of the bottle.

A jewel was all she needed for the perfect touch of bling.

I fancy myself as the "Queen of the Manor" so it's no surprise that among my stash of stamps, there would be a crown......oh yeah!

So, if you were ever wondering what my brain does when it needs a rest, this is it!!! I play with ink and paper. What fun.


  1. They are gorgeous, who wouldn't want one of these fabulous tags, now....calm down and make some more ! LOL!


  2. Hey Char, I have not had the bug for tags before. But after seeing yours and listening to you reasons, I think I need to get busy. Your fairy tassle post also caught my eye. I have several of those fairies that I forgot were put away. I'm also trying to change my deck. I was thinking that bright blue & pink might be a refreshing change from my pastels. Thanks for inspiring me.

  8. Hi Char, I miss all of you too at SLS. Are you all planning another get-away together? What fun we had last year. I love your tags and, like you, I really enjoy making them. It's very relaxing to me. I haven't had time to do any paper crafts lately with this mess in my house. I will be so happy to get my studio back. I want to sew and make stuff! xo Lynn
