DragonsDream TIO 101 - WOYWW?

Hello again and once more I am thanking you all for your wonderful words of support, cards and good wishes last week.  It's been a tough week, lots to sort out, but we're getting there!

So, it's Wednesday and you're here to see my desk (I wish!) my craft space on the floor - well, there's new stash (don't like to disappoint!) in my new, limited edition Timmy Distress inks - not a shade of wee wee among them, Julia!  Head here for the rest of the desks to snoop at!

Haven't had much of a chance to play, they just arrived in time for their big reveal here....

This week at Dragons Dream we are onto a new series of themes for Tag it On - we're going for film titles this time round and my teamie Elizabeth has chosen The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.  I couldn't get the ugly in, and I'm not really happy with this but it was all I could do.... go check out the others, I'm sure they will be cracking!
Coloured these tags alternately blue - for the angel in heaven (clouds are by stampscapes) and red for the demon in the other place! (couldn't find a stamp with flames... )  Used Marci (stampotique) with wings (a dragonfly stamp) on parchment paper, coloured with a gel pen and (very badly) drew some horns on her alter ego! Reminds me of the rhyme my dad used to say to me about the girl with the curl on her forehead, "when she was good, she was very very good, when she was bad, she was horrid!" I had very curly hair when I was little - but I am sure I was always good......

Hope you have a good week and enjoy snooping at desks, don't forget to check out the Tag it On challenge too. Why not come and play?  We'd love to see you.... Just make a tag, use at least one real stamp (not digi) and the theme - and that's it....

I like how you colored the good and bad. I hope you get your life sorted soon, too. Time will heal all, but of course, time varies and is different for everyone.

Neet said...

As Elizabeth said "Time is a healer" and thought it does not seem that way now it will later.
Love your tags - don't be hard on yourself those horns are fine.
Thinking of you and thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #1

There's always such a lot to sort out isn't there?? Official stuff, personal stuff... little steps, it'll all get done eventually.
I love the tag - am always drawn to the bad girls myself, can't think why...!!!! And I always wanted curly hair when I was younger but have poker straight locks. My mum used to put rags in for ringlets, which used to last 5 minutes before dropping out...sigh. I did have BIG HAIR in the 80s so my quest for curls was satisfied then :)

Why don't you like them? They are so much fun! Love the colours and the little angel/demon.

No flame stamp? Am shocked - I think (may be wrong) that Bombshell Stamps do some flames.

Hope you are bearing up Helen - Keep creating, it really helps.

ElizabethR said...

Just fab Helen I love it! Thinking of you lot's Love Elizabeth xxxx

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

We are all full of praise for others work and the harshest critics of our own I think. You can't completely not like them surely - there is soooo much to like :)

Neil said...

Those new colours do look gorgeous and your tags are great! Thanks for sharing and I hope each day has a little sunshine in it for you.

Julia Dunnit said...

Yeah, I'm sure you were always good too. Like I was.
Nice new inks - I wish I had the job of coming up with the names. Just think, we could have the first seven colours as Wee Wee 1, Wee Wee 2, !!!
Your weeks are bound to be frantic just now, be kind to yourself though, very glad to see that you're carving out time to do something that you like - v important.

JoZart said...

Great to see your creativity shine through despite your pain. It must be hard but you'll get there and feel able to accept things soon. Angels come in handy for help at such times!
Love JoZarty xxx

Artyjen said...

Ooh er! You'd be a bit on the poorly side if your wee wee looked anything like those colours!!! HOL
Take care

I'm sure you were always a good girl Helen and those tags are definitely good as well. I also got the seasonal Tim H ink pads - the colours are so vibrant.

Things will sort themselves out in time, hopefully time will heal a little too, but I know it's difficult. Love those new Distress colours and what a fab idea with the tags, love how you have coloured the good and then the bad LOL. Tracy x

Sunshine Girl said...

I havent succumbed to the new inks yet kind of wishing I had now! love the tags. (No. 34)

butlersabroad said...

Hope things are going OK Helen, so much to sort out, takes a lot of time with not much time to actually think until it's all over. Love the new DI's but don't like the concept because of the cost! Cheapskate here can't use a coupon on them, lol!! I do like the colours of the tags and empathise with trying to be creative when your mind is elsewhere.

Take care
Hugs

Anything called ripe persimmon and seedless preserve deserve a place in our stash ... how does TH think them up :) It will take only as long as it takes but life will settle back down again for you soon - in the meantime hope this week is a better one for you. Elizabeth x #55

I just scrolled down and read last weeks post and realised it has been a rough passage for you of late - and pray for you all in weeks ahead. it sounds rather like my mum going except mum had been no well for her last thirty years with bad Rheumatoid arthritis, they are very precious though and only one of them - thanks so much for popping over starting to feel better now thanks fully. God bless, Love Shaz in oz.x
