For the last several years, Tim Holtz has shared with us his 12 Tags of Christmas. It's an exciting and challenging time. Last year I pretty much kept up. This year Tim has finished Tag 12, but I haven't. I'm really enjoying the tags, but I'm a bit time challenged. I've finished the first five tags so far. If you've been following the tags, you'll notice that I have tried to keep very close to the actual tag created by Tim. I try to treat this activity as if I were sitting in a class with Tim. I follow his examples and instructions fairly closely. I figure that if I learn or review the technique by following Tim, I can branch out on my own whenever I choose. I'm enjoying making the tags. By being so far behind, I can savor the activity so much longer.
