I WON!

I won one of the prizes for Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2016! Now just to be honest, I was one of 12 people chosen at random to win, but still it's exciting. This is the first time I've ever made a tag (and not too successfully at that, though the tags looked ok), so I am really tickled about it.


I was looking for my name on the 12 winners, but it wasn't there so I thought I was not chosen. Then I saw my blog title and realized I actually WAS chosen as a winner. Now I have to email Mario of the Tim Holtz company so I can give them my address and they can mail me a prize. I am so happy about that.

I almost have my Easter houses completely done. There are always little details that I think of at the end - places where the paint doesn't look right, or I decide to put Mod Podge on the rooftop leaves to help make them stronger for little hands to touch, or glue a bird on the top, etc, etc. But really, I should get done today. Absolutely today.

I'm also making a few other houses using my Tim Holtz Village dwelling die and the custom die I had made by Accucut. I'd like to make a St. Patrick's day house because I think the colors would be so nice. The only punch or die I have for that is a Tim Holtz 4 leaf clover. I will have to improvise for other embellishments.

That's it for today. Just had to share the news. Take care everybody. I hope Spring is starting wherever you are. It is pretty nice here. 60s in the daytimes, 40s at night. Really nice I think.
