tagging (not the graffiti kind) and a contest

"howdy ho boys and girls..."

things have been hopping here at craft pirate lounge...taggers have crafted and conquered! all ten of us created fun and cheerful tags for presents...here are (in some cases blurry and shiny because i have a crappy camera) some close-ups of some of the ones i made....





this last one is so cute i wish it came out...it says button up your overcoat...its from the end of a player piano roll box...then there is the pix of the gal in a heavy 4os coat... a piece of veil from an old hat completes the collage...

drum roll please...

i now present the group shots of each crafty gal who participated...their names are on tags in the pictures themselves....(except this one which is mine...of note: i didn't do an xmas theme at all...i went with my usual multi-media assemblage/collage gig)...










thanks to all of you who participated in this swap...i'll be hosting another one soon if you care to join the next round... it will either be "inchies" or atc's (artist trading cards) ...i'm open if you have an opinion...don't know? google these and see what you like...let me know...

things at the lounge are mellow .... we celebrated the season last sunday night as my in-laws are leaving this week to be snowbirds in arizona and mr. pop pirate is leaving for alabama soon ...we ate a lovely turkey dinner...now, i didn't take pix of said bird but it was a small one--9.75 lbs--on the serving platter it looked like it could be a big chicken....turned out great...didn't do a fancy glaze like i did for thanksgiving (honeyed fig balsamic vinegar glaze gleaned from the food channel ) just slid my hand under the skin and applied a rosemary,garlic,salt 'n pepa, sage and basil rub...delish....we've been playing waaaayy too much guitar hero....this is our xmas present to ourselves...

i'm on to searching out my UFOs...in knitting lingo that means unfinished objects....i've got a sweater i've been working on (or not) for too long to say...wanna wear it...gotta finish it...... new pair of socks is on the needles for mr. pop pirate...the first (and only so far) pair of socks i made turned out perfectly....i mean, they fit his feet and everything...they both are the same size and there is not one imperfection....hard to live up to ...the pressure's on....

ok-- now for some more fun....go back to the top of this post...see the quote? it's an xmas reference...who says this? the first one to comment with the right answer gets some arty goodness from me....

I'm going to say George Bailey in "Its A Wonderful Life". I have never even seen a Christmas movie the whole way through. In fact I had to look up that movie on line to figure out what to even guess! I am enjoying my tags! Thanks all you creative crafters!
