And the count down begins!

Today, is the official (ahem, ok, the RED RUBBER OFFICIAL) count down to 
The 12 tags of Christmas! 

The most magical time of the year is ALMOST here! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!

And to help you get ready, here is my UNOFFICIAL, IN MY OWN PERSONAL HUMBLE OPINION, list of things "I" think Tim just MAY use on some of this years tags!

I have NO actual knowledge of ANYTHING Mr. Holtz plan's on using OR will use.
This is my best guess!

Glad to get the legalities out of the way!
Don't want anyone buying something they didn't absolutely HAVE to have! LOL.

I have no ‘insider’ information! Only TIM knows what he’ll do each day!

So, on with the fun!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Now, you can of course, go to your local stamp store and purchase items these items. And if it's a small business, I ENCOURAGE you to do so! You want that store to be there next year? Go buy from them! the big box stores get plenty of your cash year around. And yes, everyone wants a deal.... I'm just saying, support your LOCAL SMALL BUSINESS. Do it as a Christmas gift to them!

Want to shop with Red Rubber Paper and Ink? 
I would LOVE that! Just email me your list! I take Paypal, and if you want to stop on by, cash!

I’ll offer you 20% off these items until NOVEMBER 30th. After that the 20% off offer is OFF the table! 

BUT, I will be running specials on items used DURING the 12

 I can add to this, but it does seem a BIT overwhelming to those I've emailed the list to! SO, we'll see what Mr. Holtz has in store for us!!! 

Keep in mind a couple things:

1) NO ONE can have everything put out by or used by Tim. Well, ok I know a couple of you that strive for that, but most of us don't. So don't try it. You'll just get in trouble with your significant other or credit card company.

2) IMPROVISE! Take a good look around your crafting area and see what you can substitute! 

3) Many people don't follow the holiday theme, but choose to follow the techniques and make a non-seasonal tag. Brilliant! It's YOUR art. Do with it as you wish!

4) ENJOY the process! Have fun and be creative! There's enough stress around the holidays! Make these 12 days YOU time!
