Tags Today

Hello Everyone. Nice to have you call in at Jumbled Crafts and thank you for your visit and comments.

So far my week hasn't been very crafty at all but I am preparing for another project with strips of material so that will take time.

At Go Tag Thursday this week the theme is tickets. I have lots of old train tickets and I am pleased I saved them as ours now seem to be paper if you get them on the train and they don't seem useful at all.



I used my tickets from a journey we made last week though the train isn't like the ones on our route. I thought the blue clip at the top went well with the tag

Tag Tuesday has Heritage as the theme and was chosen by Wilma.

 I realised I hadn't done a tag with for my mum so had to put that right as she taught me so many things, especially sewing and knitting. She never handed down the gene with the very small waist as hers was only 19 inches when she got married. All of the things she taught me had been handed down to her by her mother and grandmother. Still lots of time to join us for the challenge so I hope to see you there.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

I can almost hear the Beatles singing Ticket to Ride, brought a smile to my face. Lovely picture and tag of your mom and such nice memories. It is great that she taught you how to sew and knit. Wishing you a happy day!

Yes, I'm late visiting. Trying to catch my breath and find my way back after being off for what seemed like a week.

The train tag is out of this world. I love the colors and the "ribbon" you used to tie into the hole.

When my grandmother died, she wore a size two. I don't know if they even make that size anymore, but she was as tiny as your mother. Such wonderful memories and luckily caught on "film." Simply a stunning entry.

Love your tags Chrissie, a great way to use up your old tickets - I always have a pocket full too. It's a beautiful tag that you've made for your Mum too. Have a fun weekend. Sue xx
