Carry On LSNED

I'm carrying on tag making and staying alert to anything new around here. This set has a more masculine feel than the last, maybe? I might have to go girly again with the next batch.


What have I learned?


- that sometimes making it up as you go along isn't enough. It's worth taking the time to find out how to do it properly.
- that keeping a notebook beside the bed really does work.


- that the very first Girl Guide leaders believed girls shouldn't be overly boisterous because it would cause them to grow moustaches.
- and that when the dentist says "if I pack it with antibiotic dressing you'll be fine," he's erring on the side of - wrongness.

Thursday's post will be a bit later than usual, but please do keep an eye out for it. I hope you will like it.

Yours will be a very beautiful collection of lessons by the end. I hope the tooth is back on the side of rightness soon! x

Cheryl said...

Sian, I'm LOVING all the things you've been making in the last month. Feast for the eyes! x

And I know just what you mean about the dentist!!!!
These tags are just gorgeous,Sian....I'm so enjoying seeing them

helena said...

The yellows and blues work so well together.

What a teaser for Thursday !!!

Lizzie said...

Those tags are great - it will make a fabulous set, to hang in your crafting room. And I don't think they look particularly "masculine" - maybe just a bit less "girly" than the last set... but still rather fab really.

Hope you have sorted out the tooth issues... sounds "ouch"! I have to go and have a crown done next month, to make sure I don't eventually lose a tooth, which split in half after I'd had J. The "old wives" say you either lose your hair or your teeth... I suppose one tooth is forgivable - though the jury is out over all the grey hairs!

Have a good Tuesday!

Jo said...

Your tags are beautiful Sian. I love the lessons you've learnt, especially the girl guide one :)

Amy said...

Goodness, well there must be a lot of hairy faced women out there then!

Ooh, that tooth trouble sounds nasty .. I hope it is resolved soon.

Jimjams said...

Ouch - I hate it when dentists are cautious :o(

Lovely tags though - keep 'em coming!

Angelfish said...

You're certainly putting that Slice to very good use Sian:)
Perhaps you were too boisterous last week and that's what made the latest batch of tags less girly!

Sandra said...

Well I certainly do like them ... very much :) oh dear sorry to hear about the dentist

Annie xx TheFeltFairy said...

Dentist = :-(

But tags = :-)

Those tags make me want to get all my scrappy stuff out! You always inspire me chucky!

scrappysue said...

Just as stunning Sian! Hope your tooth is better soon x

Amanda said...

Loving your tags :) Did you cut the bee shape with The Slice? Nice!

Can't wait til Thursday.....

Cheri said...

The quote from the dentist is rather ominous! Hope it is all sorted out quickly!

Ifa said...

Aah...that explains all those ladies with moustache. Hope you are feeling better.

Beverly said...

Love the way you are scrapping your lessons. The Girl Guide leader thing made me laugh but the dentist comment made me cringe. Hope whoever is having tooth issues is free of pain!!

Melissa said...

Oh yes, I don't know how anyone can get a good night's sleep without a notebook by the bed to jot down ideas that might keep them awake!

Jennifer said...

Another wonderful set of tags! Great things to record too. Ouch!! Nothing worse than sore teeth!! :(

Alison said...

Superb tags ...and the lesson about the boisterous girls did make me LOL!

Sue Althouse said...

Lovely tags, such a fun project! If what the Girl Guide leader said was true, I would have had a handlebar moustache by the time I was 12. Whew, dodged that one. Hope the dental annoyance has passed and the pain is gone!

Scrappi Sandi said...

Those tags are super stunning & should be out on permanent disply! In fact I think I might have to put a peg shelf like yours on my 'To Do' list as it is such an effective display tool!! I do hope the tooth is sorted soon..Dentists eh?!! ;) LOL at the thought of whiskered Girl Guides!!!

Maria Ontiveros said...

An intriguing last line Sian.
Looking forward to what's coming. . .

alexa said...

Oooh! for the tags, Huh! for the girl guiders and Oow! for the dentist ... Hope you're all fine by Thursday for the Exciting Announcement :).

Louise said...

oooh stunning tags Sian and i had to smile at your guide lesson! Hope the tooth improves xx

Bubbles said...

Love these tags... the shape is wonderful... sort of bunting, but not *lol* The colours are great too :)

Karen said...

These beautiful tags inspired me to get out my Slice and make a few myself. I'll get the cards posted soon, but none quite live up to what I'm seeing here!

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Ooooh...I love this. But you know I love garlands/banners/buntings so this is right up my alley.

Your LSNED project is awesome, Sian. I always love studying your amazing details...so glad you have some great photography skills to present them so nicely on your blog too.

Not liking your learned something about the dentist though...ouch! xo

Miriam said...

The tags are so pretty Sian, I can't wait to see the end result. I just love those concertina flowers.

Lisa-Jane said...

Dentistry is so draining isn't it?! I am very much loving these tags, I think the colours are wonderful and they are crying out to me to use them too.

Alana said...

Ooh, pretty pretties. Your tags are divine and give an autumnal feel to the post this week.

jennifer said...

The tags look stunning, the colours are so deep and expensive looking! X

Gem's Crafts said...

Well I was a guide, and then a brownie leader & I never heard the fact about growing moustaches! Loving your little tags still :)

Ginger said...

I try to avoid the dentist as much as possible :) I love the argyle print paper. Which paper line is that, if you don't mind me asking? Also, what do you use to do your inking on the edges?

Lisa said...

I think I have tagged all of your tags so far! I love them as a banner. I wouldn't normally use this colour scheme but I totally adore it. Storing up the ideas for later
