If you want to find something quickly in your archives tag it with something you’ll remember. I use lots of tags so I can look up things really quickly. I’ve tagged the Pearl Chain Maille Necklace I just posted with “chain maille” and “pearls” so I can quickly look it up by typing http://truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/pearls. This is how I use my blog as a huge but better Pinterest Board.
callasoreon asked: I have a bunch of black and white buttons of varying sizes, any suggestions on something to do with them?
I’d go and look through my 13 pages of button DIY posts (some of course aren’t what you are looking for, but lots are). This is how you can search my blog (or any blog) on Tumblr: http://truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/buttons
I have so many posts on my blog now that you can type in almost anything like “clouds” and get lots of posts: http://truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/clouds

Truebluemeandyou: This is my new Christmas/holiday gift blog. I have been asked more than a few times about cheap homemade gifts that don’t look “homemade ugly” that people would actually like to receive. I have about 30 people I make gifts for that expect something really nice. So this is where some of my cheap gift ideas are going be posted rather than overwhelm this blog.
