The Tags Have Left the Building

Today was an excellent first day back at work after the long weekend. I had a trial today so I only had to spend about 2 1/2 hours actually in the office. The attorney and I took our client out to lunch, then had a 3 hour trial, then went out for dessert and sodas. As stressful as trial can be, today was very nice. We even got out of court a little early so I was able to go to my favorite post office location downtown and I'm happy to announce that all tag packages are on their way!!! The post man that helped me was absolutely delightful. I knew him from another location and he had just transferred to the downtown location. There was not a single word of complaint as I mailed out 3 packages, 6 envies for my Good Mail club (dang I need to find that link to post for you all) and 17 packages of tags that all had varying amounts of postage on them. Anthony gets the Mail Man of the Year award in my book:)

SO...without further ado...here are pictures of the tags. I was blown away by the creativity of all you wonderful participants!!

From upper left to right clockwise -
Mary Ann, Susan, Raesha, Teresa, Rebekah (I think that's yours)

Lucy, Kerry, Liz, Carla, Vallen (I think that's yours), Ryalin

I am about to fall asleep, but I was so excited to show you these pictures! If I labeled your tag incorrectly, please let me know as I want to give proper credit as you totally deserve it! I was thrilled to death to have 19 participants. I'll be editing this post in the next day or two with all the links to all the wonderful partipants so you can pop on over to their blogs and share the love with them! You all were so generous with some wonderful hostess goodies too which I can't wait to share with you. But now, seriously, I'm about to fall asleep:)

I am so excited. Can't wait to see the combination I got. I have a favorite post office lady too. It makes a huge difference in getting a mailing ready. Have a great day.

I was so happy to see the envelope from you in my mailbox. The tags are so lovely. I get what tags are now more than when I signed up for the swap. Thank you so much for hosting it and allowing a first timer to be a part of it. You are such a generous woman; love the swag. Have a blessed weekend.

Raesha I think I received two of your tags, definitely one and I love it. There are a few that I don't know who made them so when I get a new cable to upload my photos to my computer I will take photos and maybe the artist will identify her tags. Being a part of this swap gave me a better understanding of tags. That may sound strange, but I don't think I really "got" them. Again, I thank you so much for hostessing this swap!
