It's Tag Time!

Mornin', girls! It's tag time!

I've been tagged by Syndee at http://lvpoohbr2.blogspot.com/ to list 8 random things about myself but first I wanted to talk about some OTHER tags!! :>

These 3 tags on the right were purchased from Lindsey at http://twocrazycrafters.blogspot.com/ and the tag on the left was purchased from Priscila. I also purchased a Christmas tag from Priscila but it's packed away till next year. (Be sure to click to enlarge!) Pretty cute, huh?! I just love them! I like how Priscila and Lindsey's tags are so different from one another yet each of them are special expressions of their art. I think one of the reasons I like tags so much is because they are little and I like little things but I also think it's interesting to see what an artist can do on such a small object.

Okay- 8 random things about myself...

1. I never go to town without my lipstick.

2. My favorite ice cream is Dryers Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

3. I haven't worn a pair of high heels since Junior high.

4. I once took a "Writing for Children" course and I loved it.

5. I usually end up changing my clothes several times a day.

6. I love big, dangly earrings.

7. My favorite flower is the Pansy and is tied for first place with Johny Jump- Ups.

8. I grow BIG babies. (Every boy I gave birth to was over 9 pounds.)

Was that random enough? ~ Grin ~

I'm supposed to pass this on to 8 people but I think I'll pass. ;> Ha-ha! Just call me, Rebel without a cause!

Today is my "at home movie date day" with my Bobby!

Hope you girls have a special day, too!

~ ♥ ♥ ~

pretty tags! ha, we have sooo much in common that its crazy- i am a nut about making sure i have lipstick on. i am freaking out about wearing it for our wedding; i am on a mission to find a brand that stays on for more than 30 minutes; any suggestions??

i am going to the dr. this morning; i feel even worse today; now my left ear is hurting. but my brian is coming home tonite; thank goodness!!


Pearl said...

Ohhh... My!

I see that "my" falling hearts ♥ found their way over to your blog! tee~heee... so glad I was able to help out...

Just adore those new tags you have... both Gals are so talented! Don't forget to snag your images at my place and be sure to show us what you end up doing with those cute frames! Hope your day is a beautiful one... God bless...

~hugs 'n prayers~


Holly said...

Noelle, I do not like the taste of lip stick so I wear a lot of lip gloss or gloss OVER lip stick then I can handle the taste. I talk it all off so fast- it anin't funny! :> Actually, I habitually rub my lips together when I'm working and THAT'S what makes it go so fast. I'm always mixing colors, too. Can't find one that is the perfect color all by itself. I've seen adds for long lasting lipstick but my guess is that it DRIES your lips out and I hate that! My lips are NEVER chapped! I hate that.

I hope you'll find the prefect color and solution for the wedding!

Holly said...

Yes, Pearl, I love the little falling hearts! And these ♥ ♥ ! Thanks!

I will show y'all what I do with my frames- just don't know when it will be. I usually have several "irons in the fire"!

Sweetina said...

Holly said...

OOOOh, Tina! I'm still giggling over your little trim box you sent me but tags would be great, too! Thanks!

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Well, I have to agree, those tags are SO cute! Tags can be used for many things - as bookmarks, inserts in greeting cards for special people, to decorate your scrapbook pages, etc. Have a fun movie day with your sweetie! Twyla

Holly said...

Thanks, Twyla! I don't know if I can give any of my tags away as "tags".

Queenie~ said...

Those tags are precious and so is the fabric that you took their picture on!
Oh girl, Reading the tag was fun...I know a little about carrying big babies too...my oldest boy was 8lbs. 6oz. my youngest was 9lbs 6oz...They couldn't even fit in their new born clothes....we took back alot of things...as I recall.
Hope you have a wonderful day with Darling Husband...Have a great weekend too! By the way...I loved your comment that you left about the Bon ami cleanser advertisement from the magazine....exactly my thoughts too...LOL!

Amy at Bunny Rose Cottage said...

Those tags are so pretty Holly!


Jenny S said...

Haha! love the big babies!!! Kyle was 9 lbs 13 oz and a week early!!! Yipes!!

Twyla and Lindsey said...

I forgot to tell you that I loved reading your 8 random facts. I can just see you going to town with your lipstick. I am not that dedicated to lipstick, but Lindsey is just like you! Twyla

Queenie~ said...

Oh Girl,
The hankie bunting that you made came in the mail today and it's beautiful! It's precious and I love it!! No words can ever express my gratitude to you sweetie...but thank you sooooo very much. I just sent an email to you. A big hug from me to you...I will be posting a blog mid week on this exciting day! Have a great weekend!

Holly said...

Hi, Queenie! Glad your package came! Hope everything was in one piece.

Glad you like my "back drop" for the tags. I'm trying to use different materials instead of just always having things on my lace table cloth.

My first 3 boys were all 9 lbs- something and Micah was a whopping 10 pounds even!

Here's to Bon Ami! :>

Holly said...

Aren't they so pretty, Amy? I think I'm becoming a tagaholic! ;>

Holly said...

2 visits in one day from Twyla!! Yay! Well, you can probably imagine me flipping my hair around too like on that video! Ha-ha!

Holly said...

All my babies were "early" too, Jenny!

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Your so sweet Holly! I'm glad you like your tags!
I'm having such fun making them!
I can definitely identify with you about having to have lipstick on! Cause I do too!

Holly said...

Hi, Lindsey! Did you see that the thread on your tags matches my fabric backdrop? :> Yup, gotta have those lips COVERED!

*Noelle* said...

Hey! I gave you an HONEST SCRAP award:) Please come on over to grab it and add it to yours!!


gin said...

those are cute tags. i like the 8 things you told about yourself. I can relate to the lipstick. but changing clothes several times a day? why? you do look cute in all the pictures you've shown so far with you in the picture. So a few of the pictures could have been on the same day - just in a different outfit! sorry, it's late and I don't make sense when I'm tired!

Holly said...

Gin! Ha-ha! I bet you're fun to stay up late with! I get naturally "drunk" with sleeplessness! I can get hilariously silly.

Well, I change my clothes several times a day mainly because I'm what used to be called a clothes horse! And I get hot and cold easily or I don't like that color today or it's too tight or too loose, or I walk in one outfit but then change for town or change because I'm cleaning out the wood stove or working with bleach or my sleeves interupt me while I paint and then, etc, etc... :> Get the picture?

gin said...

Yes I see why you change all day. It's like when we were little playing dolls and and we changed their clothes all day.

Holly said...

Yeah, Gin or maybe it's because I never had a little girl to dress up! :>

LvPoohBr2 said...

I love the tags! They are so cute!

Wow 9# babies! Ouch!! I guess I wouldn't know though, I had 3 c-sections. hee Thanks for playing, it was fun reading all of your randomness! ;D
