Number Tags

The tag challenge blog up and ended before the numbers were complete.  I went ahead and completed the number series on my own.

First up is #6.  Just a chosen date that reflected the beginning of school and picture day. Vintage style with coffee stain and all.

The back of #6

And the final number, #7.  Our house number in Wisconsin.

The back of #7

Looking back I notice #0 never made it's way into the series.  Oh well.  It will NOT bother me.  At least not enough to go back to this number the moment.

I gathered all the tags together.  While I wasn't happen with some of them, I was very happy with others.  It makes no never mind.  The playing is what's important.

Count your blessings.


  1. Wow! What an impressive collection. They are awesome!

  2. Hey Annie -- all of your tags are really fun and wonderfully designed. When I create a tag - the back gets all messed up - how do you prevent that? You have really been busy --- don't know how you do it. If I could print as well as you, I would just print a letter on a tag and send it out!!!!!
    Thanks for visiting me Sugar - I do love the comments!!

  3. I love them all. Your house number reminds me that I want to do some sort of memory gathering of the different homes or places I have lived starting with Mom hanging the laundry over the very windy "gut" (a stream to the ocean)between apartments in Newfoundland.

  4. Great way to display your tags. Ingenious using handles. Again you get so much detail into these small tags. You always make the backs so interesting.

  5. I do like number 7. Is that you looking out from your art studio? Your Ivory Tower looks great and what a pretty garden. Seriously, this tag is seriously good, a serious piece of art. Trying to say how much I like it. Great combinations of subtle colours too.
    The school tag looks vaguely menacing, maybe because the children weren't allowed to smile. Nice work with the "coffee stains".
    They do look good hanging in a a row, all so different.

  6. How fun that you finished the Number Tag Challenge. You know I always enjoy your creative art and Muse. You are correct about the is all important and we should all find more time to play. Embrace Your Art Dear...

  7. Annie, where do you buy your stamps? I kind of looked at Michael's the other day, but didn't really see anything that made me think I needed to bring it home. Am I just without vision because I'm not that familiar with the process yet or do you shop online?

  8. Love both tags Annie and what a great way to display them all together, they look fabulous! Deb xo

  9. Oooh my mouth is watering because that tag is just sooooo perfect Annie and then when you see them all together oh my heart nearly burst with arty goodness! Seriously,you do create the most wonderous stuff ;)

    Bye for now --

  11. WOW oh WOW! I love your collection of numbers! Fabulous display too. You continue to amaze me with your creativity!

  12. Brilliant tags, Annie...I especially like your school day tag!!!

  13. Great start to the year, completing a project from the past year before it is lost or forgotten. Love all of your numbers.

  14. Your tags are all amazing and I love the way you have displayed them.

  15. Terrific tags. Your #7 is topnotch--is the little girl in the window representing you?
