bowled over: transitive verb

to impress
( interesting fact: this word was first used in 1867 )
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
We have had a wonderful week so far, Chrissy has shown us oodles of hand made ornaments to create, Heather has a fantastic tutorial on how to make a biased apron and Melissa supplied us with fabulous ideas to stuff those stockings and I showed you how to make a great girlfriend gift!
 
So now, we are starting week 2 and Chrissy will be showing some Home schooling ideas that includes a Christmas theme! How clever!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tag..you're it!
( I use to hate this game when I was a child,  could never catch anybody!! )
But noawadays tags are all the rage, some have as much attention to detail as a card and after you have wrapped those gifts, don't forget to finish them off with a beautiful hand made tag that says..."gee, you are special to me...see what I made for you?"
 
I know a lot of my bloggy friends love to make tags, and you can get inspiration from these BEAUTIFUL Christmas ones by:
 
Anne ( Toy Soldier, and Snow is Falling ) ....from Julie ( Merry Christmas )....from Mel ( Wish, Holiday Wreath, Santa Love, and Peace on Earth ) from May ( Joy, and Christmas Heart ) and from Meggy ( Santa is on his way ).
 
So you have lots of wonderful goodies to look at and get inspired from. Do take a moment to look around their blogs, they make so many wonderful projects, I know I am always bowled over by them!
 
And here are a few of my tags that I sell at the Art MoB:
( on the back of each tag is printed with a "To:" and a "From:" )

Since I have no die cutting machine and no Tim Holtz dies, stamps, or products, I wonder what people like me can actually make without all these pre-designed products. It's good to see your enthusiasm over these products and I enjoyed your choice of shout out tags. They, and yours, are all fun to look at and dream about. Maybe I should come to play at your place awhile (grin).

Now back to reality.
