Happy Homemaker Tag for March


Hello, Happy Homemakers! Sorry I'm late to the swap. This picture of my dining room table gives you a hint as to why I'm late. I kept telling myself that I would clean it up so I could start fresh and make a new mess making my tags. But, by the 10th that still hadn't happened, so I decided I just needed to take the plunge, to "just do it," as they say at Nike. So I did. Right on top of all the mess you see here. I hope some of you can relate!


ere it is. I really struggled with coming up with a creative theme for March. As you can see, I lost the struggle and went with the obvious St. Patrick's Day. Did you know that March is also Deep Vein Thrombosis Month, National Eye Donor Month, and National Kidney Month? Hmmm... on second thought, maybe St. Patrick's Day wasn't such a bad choice after all!

Another thing I have been struggling with is using the little Material Girl on all of my tags. Should I, or shouldn't I? I still haven't decided for sure. Will my tags all look the same if I do, or will she tie them all together? Decisions decisions...

One thing I didn't struggle with at all was the button card. I've been anxious to use my new Button Boutique stamps from PAPERTREYinc. There are about 24 stamps in the set so the variety of button cards you can make is limitless. Perfect for Button Floozies like me! And even though I have oodles of green buttons, I "made" these myself from glittered foam shamrocks from Michaels by taking my handy dandy whole punch and punching two holes in the center of each one.

So that's my story for March. Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to the Happy Homemaker Tag Along blog so I can follow the links to your tag :) After I get some breakfast and take a shower, that is!

Debbie! Boy do I ever relate! I made my most recent Easter crafts as the pile just kept growing on my little crafting desk. What chaos! YES! I do love your Material Girl theme. I promise you by the end of the year they will all look so cute together. Some months could just be about the material, LOL! THE BUTTON CARDS! I thought you had purchased it! Fascinating! The best part! Thank you so much for sharing with me in this Tag Along! Elizabeth

Debbie, If we did not have messy desks, how would we create? I just love your button card. And to think you MADE it! You are too clever.
As for the material girl, go with your heart, if it feels right it will be. You will know what to do from tag to tag. Just don't stress. I love her! Your choice for St. Pats was a perfect one. What on earth would you have done for those other crazy days???

Well your tag came out stunning I love those greens. I'm stumbling along here with these tags myself and feel myself pooping on out of it. I'll try and hang in there but it's not easy as I already don't like my papers anymore lol..

Your tag is really cute!! I would have LOVED to see what you could've created using National Deep Vein Thrombosis as your theme

I love your Material girl and think a 12 month set will be wonderful!
