A Swapping We Will Go

Okay friends – I have finally decided to go for it and host my first official swap with my blog buddies.

I have been a lover of papercrafts for about 20 years…cards, scrapbooks, tags – you name it, I love it. SO for this swap I want to celebrate my love for TAGS.

Here are the details:

Make/decorate 10 tags and get 10 different ones back (I'm hoping we have at least 10 players:)).

Minimum size of your tag should be 2 inches by 4 inches. You can make them larger if you want, but please no smaller than that.

You can purchase tags to decorate or make your own. As for me, I’m partial to the office supply shipping tags like this one pictured here.

Sign ups will close on May 1, 2007.

Deadline for the tags to be mailed to me is May 18, 2007 (Mt. St. Helen’s day to us native pacific north westerners). I hope to have all tags swapped and back to you by June 1, 2007.

Please include a return address label and 3 first class stamps (be sure to send the new rate USPS stamps if you are in the US) for return postage.

If you can think of a detail I’ve left out, PLEASE let me know. I want this to be a fun swap, and of course, all participants will receive a little extra something for participating.

In the next few days I’ll try to post links to various decorated tags for inspiration.

Email me at raeshadrz at yahoo dot com to sign up and for my address.

Oh I so want to play! But I don't know if I can do it. I'm so out of my element if it's not fabric. I'm going to go to the craft/paper store and see if I think I can do it. I'll let you know soon (ha, maybe that should be a "warning", LOL).

Hey Big Sis,
Count me in. Maybe it will motivate me to do something. Also, I had NO idea that stamps were increasting. Freakers! I think I'll buy some of the "Forever" stamps. They say they will be good forever no matter what price increases happen.
