Happy last Monday of November! Before we get rolling on the next challenge, I have a prize to give away. The Random Number Generator has spoken, and the winner of the Tim Holtz Journal Kit is.... Number 3, Bonnie McLain! Congratulations, Bonnie!!!
Thanks to everyone who shared their gorgeous creations last week. I truly do wish I could sent every one of you a prize.
And now, it's officially The Most Wonderful Time of the Year! We grungy crafters wait for it, wish for it, plan our early Decembers around it... that's right, it's almost time for:
Did you watch the video? You've got to watch the video! I watched the video, like, eight times. I love, love, LOVE the 12 Tags, and can't wait to enjoy this beloved tradition along with my Grungy Monday friends!
This challenge is going to be a little different from the norm, because I want everyone to have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in The 12 Tags of Christmas. So, Grungy Monday 29 will be open for TWO weeks, and the challenge is to post your favorite winter holiday-themed project using Tim Holtz products and/or techniques. You are welcome to link in one of your new 12 Tags projects, or any other Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Winter Solstice/"What-the-Heck-It's-Cold-Outside" piece you wish! Please be sure, though, to include info about which of Tim's products you used.
You can post your entry anytime between now and 8pm Sunday, December 11. That's the second-to-last day of 12 Tags, so you'll have lots of projects to choose from if you decide to link in one of those pieces. One lucky participant-- selected by Random Number Generator-- will win this very cool, canvas Tim Holtz Idea-ology messenger bag! What a great way to tote around your craft supplies!
To keep it all equitable, please link one project only for this challenge. You can upload a picture from your blog or any online photo-hosting site, using the InLinkz button at the end of this post.
All Things Tim, too, where awesome List Mom, Gloria, has provided this easy way to share your GM work with the entire membership there. It's an awesome group of artists, and if you're not a member, it's high time you joined the fun!
Have a great time with this super-sized Grungy Monday, and I hope to see you all linking your tag every day at Tim's blog when the 12 Tags of Christmas officially begins. Don't forget to add a project here for an opportunity to win the messenger bag (and because I'd miss you if you didn't!).
For my project, I made a shadowbox to display a couple of the vintage shelf elves my mom gave me last year. They're old and a little stretched out, and don't sit too well on their own anymore... so, they needed something to lean against!
This is a big 'ol celebration of Tim's new Christmas Alterations dies: Bigz Vintage Noel (cut from Grunge Board), Bigz Holiday Lampost (more Grunge Board), and the Festive Greenery Strip Die (cut from various colors of Tim's Core'dinations Kraft Core paper).
