Tag Day

This evening I spent about 2 hours cleaning up the room where I have dumped art supplies for the past few months.  They were everywhere.  On the bed, on the floor, in the two rolling carts I specifically bought for supplies.  It was time to take stock and clean up.  I finally got it cleaned up and moved to the back room where my husband is going to make me some sort of shelving.

So now that it was all cleaned up it was time to dig in and create.  I pulled out some paper, a tag, a few buttons, some ribbon and a few extra goodies.  I never start knowing exactly what I am going to create.  I have a canvas bag that I put the things that I might want to use into and then I create on a wooden Walmart TV tray with my little bag of supplies in front of the TV with hubby.  Yes, I still have to make several trips to get things I didn't realize I would need but it works for me.

Here is a tag that I created with the bits and pieces I put into my little canvas bag.

The colors match the ones that Anything But a Card has challenged us to use in Color Challenge 19 so I think I will enter it into this challenge.

I also started working on a refrigerator magnet made from an old unwanted CD for my little sister.  It is still a work in progress but it was started after I completed the tag.  More on this later.

Thanks for stopping in.
