2013 Christmas Tags distributed and great deal on pearlized cardstock on Cyber Monday - today!!!!

Hello Friends,
Well I did it!  The first annual "gift of tags" to each of my family members went off with a wonderful response!!!  I think next year I will actually have to make more for some of the extended family members too!

This year I created 14 different sets of tags though a couple sets did not get photographed and posted to my blog.   I then filled a clear cello bag with one of each type of tag for each of my 6 siblings as well as my parents which I distributed at our family Thanksgiving get together.  I thought you might like to see a picture of all of the tags that were placed in the bags this year:

I sure have enjoyed creating tags for my family!  It was a gift that was very much appreciated by everyone which really warmed my heart!  And it was a lovely way to give thanks to all of my family who have supported Tim and I through some very tough times the past couple years.  What a true blessing our family and friends are - I am so very grateful!

I am now working on some tag gifts for my girlfriends that will be coming over for a cookie exchange party during December.  I hope to give them a few each too to use for their Christmas gifts this year.  So stay tuned for a few more posts with Christmas tags in them! LOL!

I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful Holiday season!  I know I am.....the outside lights are up thanks to some lovely help from my sister and niece on the day after Thanksgiving and I am starting work on the inside of my home now.
