When I mess about trying to decide where to put the tinest and most insignificant of flat back gems I call it Fiddle Farting, hence the name of the blog!!!
After a great deal of thought I have decided that for the forseeable future there will only be one post a week on a Monday.

After a great deal of thought and taking in all the changes in my life over the past eighteen months or so, I have decided that for the the time being, at least, I will only be posting once a week on a Monday from now on.......
OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to redo them

Let It Snow Wooden Christmas Tags
The tags in today’s post started life out as a box of animal dominoes that I got at a carboot sale for 50p!
I covered them with blue patterned paper and some glitter card and then embellished them with snowmen buttons (I coloured their scarves and buttons with Sharpies permanent pens), handwritten sentiments, a few stars and a bit of faux stitching.
Before starting I checked that the ink from a black fine liner pen would not bleed into the wood and that you could write a message on the back.
On the finished tag backs I have just done the faux stitching, leaving the middle blank.
I used my Aldi Craft drill set (bought a little while ago) to put the holes for the thread fastenings.
I also tried making a heart shaped tag along the same lines, but I am not so happy with it…. however, if you can wait a day or two I have altered the design a little bit with more pleasing results.
