Welcome to the 24 tags of Christmas series for 2015! I love putting this together each year. Well two years in a row at least! If you’d like to see last year’s day one tag, click HERE. Let’s go!

I spent time searching the couch cushions to find some time to try out the Prima Water Soluble Oil Pastels – and I think they’ll be fun! In today’s tag video I’ll show you how I made the multicolored watercolor snowy background…it’s so easy, your kids can help you with it!


Check out the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

I love that these Oil Pastels can vary the look based on how much water is added – AND that the color doesn’t re-activate once dry! Perfect to use for kiddos with sticky fingers opening tags this holiday season, am I right? And oh – Postcards or envelope stamping? Yes please. No worrying about the USPS smoodging a stamp!

Handmade is the best kind of giveaway! Each year I give away all of the tags made in the series – so there will be 24 winners! To sweeten the pot, I am giving a financial donation to 24 charities in the name of each of the winners – so they’re going to get to pick which charity they love most.  To qualify to win, leave a comment on this post with YOUR favorite charity, and a comment on the YT video each day all week. I’ll pick 12 from blog comments and 12 from YouTube comments, and announce them all on Sunday the 15th!
