Gift Tag Swap – Check

June 19th, 2006

The gift tags were sorted, wrapped, and placed in the post on Saturday, so you should receive your tags soon. I would like to apologize in advance if you receive your own tag or nine instead of 10. I was incredibly careful and organized about sorting these, but with 200 gift tags and 20 swappers something is bound to be off — despite my editor-nature. If something is wrong, please email me as I have left-overs and would not mind sending you an extra bit at all!

All of the gift tags are incredible, really. Go take a look for yourself. When they were all packaged up in your envelopes, they reminded me of a very luscious box of chocolates. Thanks to all who participated; this was great fun!

Now that business has been taken care of, look at the pretties that were sent along with the tags! You really shouldn’t have, but I am so glad that you did.

Gift Tag Swap Gift
This lovely cat from Mai Le now has a new home on our sofa. Mary Lou (the cat) has taken a particular liking to this softie and spends much of the day curled around it.

Gift Tag Swap Gift
The card and earrings are from My Spare Time. Aren’t they beautiful? The earrings are very me and so well-made.

Gift Tag Swap Gift
And magnets from Craftapaloza. These are beautiful and very original. They look great on my fridge.

Thanks so much everyone!!

    I just came back from browsing all the tags. All so pretty and different. I especially liked the one with the cowboy by biscotti designs (i think?)

    The tags are so, so beautiful! I am sorry that I discovered too late for me to join. I will be looking to see if you will host another tag swap soon!! I hope, I hope! Cute goodies that came with them as well!

    Thank you so much for organizing this swap. It was my first and I cannot wait to receive my package. This was incredibly fun!

    All the tags look gorgeous! I received my little package yesterday and I am thrilled. I wish I could selfishly have all the tags that were made, as they are all so purdy. Thanks again for doing this swap, Dacia. It was quite fun indeed!

    PS. Hopefully you were able to send out all my “large crowns” with the extra postage, as those were the intended for the swap? Fun stuff!

    Oh… the Canadian mail system is sooooo slooooow! I will have to be content with these lovely pictures for a while yet.

    Karen… the cowboy is from a tiny bit of vintage wallpaper I’ve been hoarding.

    My tags were waiting for me yesterday when I got home. They are gorgeous and one immediately went on a gift for a friend’s birthday. Thank you again Dacia, and thanks to everyone who played!

    Thank you so much for organizing this, Dacia! I cannot tell you how excited I was to receive my tags! They are all truly gorgeous and they came so beautifully wrapped (and with bonus goodies! Yay!)! I’m so happy that I got to participate. It’s going to be very hard to part with any of these cuties… Thanks so much again!

    What fun it was to open the package. My husband just didn’t understand- for me it was better than Christmas! They are all so lovely and it was so kind of you to organize the swap. I know it must have been a little hairy sorting them out. Thanks!
