Christmas tag swap

In just two weeks from today, my sis-in-law is flying in from Oregon to spend a week with me! I can hardly wait. My niece and I are planning our annual trip to Ritter Island to make Christmas cards and gifts. Barb will fly in on a Wednesday and we will spend Thursday and Friday visiting my parents. Friday evening we will head to the island for a few days of playing. My niece and I are planning games and prizes and hopefuly lot of fun things for us to do while there. Another niece (and possibly her daughter) from Utah is planning on attending this little get away too. I can hardly wait. I have to return Barb to the airport on the following Wednesday. :-(

Anyway, to get to the

We have decided to do a couple swaps for when we get together. Last year several of us did a tag swap and it seemed to be a hit so are doing it again this year. Bev (my buddy in Ohio), my sis and her daughter, my niece and her sister are all involved in it this year. We are to make four tags for each person. These are the ones I have done. I sure hope they like them and will use them to label their gifts. I used the snowman nativity stamp set from TAC. I cut the little cards off my newest Cricut cartridge...... Life's a Party. Of course I had to add good ole stickles! lol

Four of us also chose to do a handmade ornament exchange again this year. So now I am off to get them started. Will post photos when I get mine done.
