I don't know why I picked that title - I sat here for a few minutes trying to decide what to call this and "Tina's Tag Gate" just wasn't workin' for me.
But, it should have been because that's what this post is all about!
I'm going to share with you the pictures that I took that show the making and putting together of the victorian window that I got to put Tina's tags on. Now, you must understand that I am the worst of the worst when it comes to taking pictures of works in progress or events - I'm simply horrible. So, you don't get to see the window as it looked when I bought it, you don't get to see me breaking out all of the glass and not cutting myself, not even once, you don't get to see me trying to use a staple gun (did you know that it takes a strong hand to get those buggers to go into the wood and that your aim has to be really good to get your piece of wire between the two sharp points of the staple? ha!) because I forgot to take pictures, so I did the next best thing....the following pictures are self explanatory so I'll not bore you with sub-titles. What I'll do instead is let you look at the pictures while I work on the pics I took at Tina's this week when I hand delivered the gate. Good plan???

For your viewing enjoyment........................

This is Taylor, my pale pink ribbon cutting and pushing through the holes of the tags that needed length to tie on to the fencing helper. Thanks, Taylor!

Thank you, each of you wonderful artists, all of you members of Team Tina, that made this present for such a dear, sweet fellow mixed media artist, possible. I cannot wait to get it to her! .......Just give me some time to get all of the pics I took of the trip to Tina's fixed up and I'll get that trip posted. I'm old, I'm slow, but I eventually come through!
