Tags Saturday

Hi All. Thank you for your visit to Jumbled Crafts today. Here I am sitting with my laptop on my lap and that's a first for me even though I have had it for a long time. I always use it sitting at a desk with a mouse to help me along the way. It has been in my craft room and at the moment that is full of stuff from another room that is being decorated. Apologies for any errors but it certainly doesn't feel like I have ever used this machine before.

At Tag Tuesday we have the theme Back to school chosen by Michele

I used some words by Shakespeare for this tag. Hope you will join us for the challenge there is lots more time to think of something.

Go Tag Thursday have watches/clocks this week.

I had this old watch that had long since stopped working so I took off the strap and used it on my tag. One thing about clearing out a room is you find so much stuff to get rid of. I have boxes ready for the charity shop and lots that should have been thrown away well before now.

Someone asked ages ago if I had a photograph of when I was a 'biker chick' as I mentioned I was in a comment. Can't find many at all as most of the photographs of that era were kept by my ex husband, I wonder if he ever looks at them?

I was 16 on this photograph and minus the usual leathers, boots and very old fashioned helmet. My poor dad used to beg and plead for me not ride on the back of motor bikes but he had never felt the freedom of  travelling along and being part of the countryside that you got on a motor bike in those days.I bet  it is all fumes and fear now.

Enough for today. I will be pleased to use my phone for commenting as lap tops on laps don't seem to be my things.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Gorgeous photo from your biker chick days, what fun you had! I only had a Lambretta, but I loved it too! Gorgeous tags, you have done well to fit in some crafting in spite of all the renovations going on. Both tags are lovely. Hope you manage to find some quiet corner over the weekend, hugs, Valerie

  2. great tags and very fine photo of you as a bike chick...I have a motor bike today - and use it everyday as i have no drivers licens

  3. You were a gorgeous biker chick Chrissie. :) That's a fantastic photo. And I think lots of kids here in the US are like the little boy in your tag. It's a good one-as is your watch one with the great quote. Hugs-Erika

  4. The tags are great designed again and chrissi as a young girl on the motorcycle is cute a pretty youthful. The fears I believe have all parents even today ...

    I wish you a good evening

  5. Your tags are fabulous and you looked very good on that motor bike !!!

  6. Wonderful tags Chrissie, the boy sure looks glum and not happy to be going to school.
    It is a great photo of you with the motor bike. I think you will have had a great time back then.
    Yvonne xx

  7. Two lovely tags Chrissie, I love the unwilling school boy. Your photo reminded me of my teen years when I was also always on someones motorbike. My two sisters had their own motorbikes but I was never brave enough !


  8. Hey biker chick, you look cool on that bike. Great tags xx [aNNie]

  9. You look sweet not biker chick, great photo though! Love the watch tag, the quote is so true!

  10. Love the biker chick photo its fabulous and you look so cool and pretty, Love your tags too Chrissie. x

  11. I love both of your tags - great quotes to go with the images! Loved your bike photo! My uncle had a big Norton bike that I was allowed to ride pillion on but when one of the boys in our group of friends bought small one my Dad banned me from riding on it!!! Hugs, Chrisx

  12. Great tags, great sayings - I particularly like the Shakespeare with the modern boy.

  13. I thought your Shakespeare inspired tag was fabulous. I really like that theme, and think you did a great job combining the old with the new.

    Your clock/watch was inspirational. I really enjoyed it, and look forward to seeing more of those from you.

    I have to agree about the biker chick, although I only sometimes wore a helmet. I bet all the boys wanted to ride with you! What a great photo and a fabulous attitude!

  14. Fab tags and what a fabulous photo of 'that chick' on the bike - love it xx

  15. Oh Chrissie I feel your pain! I have a lap top, but I have to use it on a desk with a proper mouse lol. I love your tags, the first one reminds me of me on a Monday morning when I was still at work! Great biker chick photo too, very pretty xx

  16. Well, you can't go wrong with a bit of Shakespeare - your whining schoolboy is perfect! I've not come across that watch/time quote before but it's very clever, and your biker chick photo has made my day. There's far too much traffic these days to make any kind of driving much fun - but I can imagine you with the wind in your hair enjoying the freedom of the road!
