T Tuesday: Dig deep edition

Hello and welcome to the one year anniversary of T stands for Tuesday! Elizabeth asked us to “dig deep” in our archives to find our favorite T Tuesday post from the past year. What a task!!Β  I had a hard time choosing just one….it’s like asking who’s you favorite child or pet. So I sat down last evening with a glass of red wine and my eBook reader to contemplate.20140714_5879I finally settled on a post from last October.

Lets take a look….


It’s been a whirlwind of activity around here since last week. I think the last time I’ve had two hours to rest during the day was when I was in the salon, last T Tuesday, getting my hair done.


I’ve been sewing like crazy. On both fabric…

cup cozy

And paper.

sewn cards

Of course, some painting as well.

In fact I have some spray painted goodies in the garage right now. Hopefully I’ll get everything done for Saturday. I have so many ideas now at the last minute for my craft sale. That’s the way it always works with me. I come down to the wire and my mind starts racing with new items to add to my table.

In addition to my “crafty crap”, as Mr. G so affectionately refers to it,Β  I have these this on my list.

  • a chapter to read for my bookclub tomorrow.
  • finish A Wrinkle in Time for Big J’s “partners in reading” project….yes, I get homework too.
  • mow the lawn…bagging it since there are so many leaves.

As well as the regular Tuesday stuff…knitting group, pesky household chores andΒ  visiting T Stands for Tuesday blogs.

What are you doing today?

    Happy T anniversary, Halle! I enjoyed this look back at your awesome art!

  2. So glad you chose this post. It was fantastic last year, and again this year. I still love the streaks of pink you add to your hair to honor Breast Cancer Month. Thankfully you have the complexion for it, too.

    I get a kick out of “crafty crap” every time you say or write it. It’s so funny, and I can just hear you saying it now.

    Thanks for joining and sharing for this special T edition.

  3. Choosing one post was challenging…you did good Halle with this selection chock full of good stuff!
    Here’s to continued fun and sharing…
    Happy T Day
    p.s. to answer your question here too…I use Pixlr Express to make mosaics and add my watermark and such … it is a REALLY easy free program to use that I cannot live without πŸ™‚

  4. I enjoy your posts and always find something new to look at even though I’ve looked before. Looking forward to another year of T Tuesdays and seeing what you are working on.

  6. HI Halle!!

    I can SO hear my hubby say Crafty Crap just like yours… although usually he is a little more diplomatic… lol….. Thanks so much for sharing your archived post. I’m new around here so its not archival to me but NEW! πŸ™‚ Hugs! deb

  7. Oh What a great post. Well done you for streaking your hair pink for cancer. Something I am contemplating this year. Though my hair is so short I am not sure it will be seen!

  8. Fun to see the art and craft things you were working on again.
    I totally forgot about the past post thing. Oh well. Happy T-Day anniversary! πŸ™‚

  9. Hey Halle, wow you have been busy. Love the colour in your hair and your little paintings and cards. I have just bought an eBook, a Kobo and just love it. Isn’t it great to look back and see what you have done !

  10. I don’t remember seeing this before. Your paper cards and paintings are awesome. Happy T Anniversary to you too and Thank you for sharing your lovely art here.

    Hello and Happy T Day! I remember this post and LOVED it and still do!! Full of beautiful art that you are still sharing with us. I like that you also do a variety of crafty things, more fun I think. So glad you remembered my fall post and enjoy it. It was fun to see everyone’s today.
    WOW, you do have a lot on your list, hope you got it done and had fun in between. We had a surprise party for my sister at her new house, she was shocked to see us all show up. She thought just my mom was coming, lol.
    Have a great week!
