We hit two yard sales this morning, found a jenga game for 1.00 ( for the wood blocks for sentiment mounting) and so then had to go to homedepot, and a ranch supply and got to make a few simple tags then went to J's and M's because, I had gift cards from the birthday and coupons... got a little something for my Christmas box which is coming along nicely. ( got the big things delivered just need to stamp images and such)

things like that.

Did you try stamping on the felt? I keep thinking it will absorb? ( are you going to have to embroider the stamping to keep it there?)

My Mom did the same thing. I think there was a set a while back that actually was only 3 stamps/blocks, but there was like 10 related sayings + borders on each stamp or something like that? Anyway, she cut them all apart and mounted each sentiment individually - and she used blocks from a jenga game and my dad just cut them off to the right length for her.

No, I haven't yet, and I really hope I do NOT have to embroider it. I'll go nuts if I have to do that. I'm doing an under the sea page and was just going to stamp all those sea stamps I have from HH on coloured felt & cut them out. I do NOT want to have to stitch all those little things. I'd either need to find another alternative or give up on the page I think - I don't think I have the time or patience to do that.
I think I may post in GST and see if I get any suggestions.

I have two of that kind of set... and they are a booger to stamp with a marker because they are so close together.

I've been thinking about looking around & buying myself a tag die or two. Not that you can't make tags out of any shape, and goodness knows I have enough nesties to have lots of shapes. And I do have the small tag punches SU! did (both sizes), but still, it would be nice to have a larger, actual tag die KWIM?

*sigh* I am craving chocolate. I have somehow managed to have no chocolate bars in the house. I could make chocolate chip cookies, but that would be work and my kitchen is already messy. I could make brownies, which would be less messy and faster, as I have a brownie mix in the cupboard. But I am feeling lazy.......

Stacy - if you follow me on pinterest, I re-arranged my boards tonight and started a bunch of new food ones. So you'll probably have to un-subscribe yourself.

I've only done it in a pot on the stove, but it isn't that much work on the stove. I just fry the hamburger & the taco seasoning, chop the red pepper, then dump everything in the pot, and leave it on a low simmer for a couple of hours. Only about 15 minutes work really.

Teehee! I love watching Galaxy Quest. The writer was brilliant - it is such a hilarious satire of trekkies.

I was going to just have sandwiches but am in the mood for taco soup. I have most everything to make a big batch of it, just need more hamburger and some Fritos, toss a salad, a few sandwiches for my picky eaters, and the meal for 20 is done. Kind of get tired of the same thing all the time, kwim?

Dd2 had a very cheaply made Disney costume for Halloween that fell apart even before the end of the school party on Wed. Makes me want to go after them for such an expensive poor quality piece of carp. If the big names are going to put their name on something, they should at least be sure they are of good quality. Ginak's thing makes me think I should write to the company that made it and demand a replacement or a refund, but then again, they are a big company and could probably care less...

yeah, I read it a while back. Stupid. Big greedy companies. I have no patience for them. I haven't bought any of their products since I read that. Not that I buy much anyway, but I do like doing things with nuggets. Hopefully some other company will come out with something similarly shaped so I can buy that instead.

I kept thinking they would have looked better with skeleton leaves stamped along the edges before I glued on the words... they are just shipping tags stained with distress stains... and die cut scrap words...
