T is for Mixed bag

Hi All. It has been a sunny and bright day after the frosty start and it was good to see the brightness back again after the dark days of late

Happy T Day to all the lovely people that join Elizabeth for her Tuesday get together where we share drinks posts.

I took this when I was having my first morning cup of tea. I do have a coffee in bed to waken me up. I have had this computer for a few years and didn't even know if it had a camera but I was determined to find out so that I could take a pic for this post. Cheers everyone! Not easy to juggle a cup and a mouse at the same time but I made it.

A reminder that you still have another week to join us at Try it on Tuesday where you can make anything that isn't Square

This is for all Aquarians out there. Hope you have a good year.

At Tag Tuesday this week the theme is pebbles and stones. 
 From the first Tuesday
in February. It will still be Tag Tuesday, but instead of being a 'closed'
blog, it will have a link up where anyone can link to if
their tag fits the theme. 

I made a tag by covering it with foil and passing it through the Cuttlebug in a folder. Then I painted on the blue as sky and the brown as soil. The polished stones are some that Vic brought back from Arizona about 40 years ago and he has given me the small ones to use on projects. The text and the tie were added digitally after I took a photograph of the tag.


  1. I think this is a super photo with your cup Chrissie! I wonder if my computer can take a photo like that. And loving the Aquarius piece. Is it already that time? Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  2. I think your selfie is wonderful. Several of my friends are trying to get me to invest in a new camera once I get my new computer up and running, but I don't want my face on the internet. And Bleubeard and Squiggles would never sit in front of the computer for a snap shot!

    Your Aquarius journal page is beautiful. I like that it has a pitcher in it, too. So, you have a double T entry this week.

    Your stones tag is awesome. I love that you showed how you got the texture, and those stones are beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing your Aquarius art, your beautiful tag, and your cup with you smiling behind it for T this Tuesday. It was nice seeing a bit of your craft room, too.

    Happy T-Day,

  17. Great pic of you. Your mug is so Spring time. It's so grey here after a big storm that left freezing rain, drizzle and slush. The Zodiac page is fabulous. Will you be doing all the Zodiac signs? I love the stones tag. My hands are just itching to pet the smooth blue stones. Have a Happy T Day

  18. What a great photo of you with your cup! I'd never thought of checking to see if my computer could do such a thing. Hmmm...

    It's 63F and sunny here today, and it feels like spring :) Happy T Tuesday

  20. I love the Aquarius piece! The pebbles against the blue looks amazing! Love your flowery mug! Happy T day! Chrisx

  21. Your computer skills put me to shame. Or maybe it's your "no fear" approach to learning new ones. It's so nice to see you, Chrissie! Nice photo.

    The falling snow, your animated sign-off (so cute!) and now taking selfies! I'm afraid to touch anythng new for fear of crashing everything - lol. But now you've got me curious. The stones tag is great. The colors on the little stones are amazing.

    Happy T Day, Chrissie! XOX Eileen
