Tag Book progress!

Just a note to let those of you in the Tag Book swap know . . . I have mapped out the actual swapping part on paper and it looks like it will work out just fine, phew! If you receive someone's tag in your book, they most likely have one of yours; I like to try to "trade" swap pieces based on my sense of what you both might like. It is a highly scientific process -not! 
I simply need to concentrate a bit while doing the figuring out so I can remember and note on paper when I have swapped a piece so we end up with the right numbers. I am kind of used to this process now after 8 or 9 years of hosting, but it's always a challenge. For me, once I have the swaps mapped out on paper, it is not so overwhelming to physically swap them out! I put together the first Tag Book late last night as I was excited to see what it looked like. I will tease you with a photo of it on top of my swapping out lists:

This will give you an idea of what your tag book will look like . . . because I do not believe any of the tag books have the same tags in them! They will all be different. The top tag is the cover tag I made myself for all of the books and they are all a little different too. The little round tag is an extra I made for all the books, just for fun, reminding you to never forget to PLAY!

As I think I have mentioned, my oldest son Decklin, his girlfriend Tina, my sister Kathy and my nephew Dale are all flying in today from Connecticut and Massachusetts. So I will be busy with them, but during down time I will be wanting to get back into my studio and put your Tag Books together. This is more fun than I even imagined, seeing them take shape! My goal is to get the books made and packaged up to send by the end of the week, but I will keep you posted . . . . Steven and I also find out later today we hope, if the offer we made to purchase a home very near my parents, is accepted or not!! We are renting a house right now some 15 minutes from them, which is not bad, but I have been scouring the housing market down here in my free time for something better : ) Both Steven and I do love this house, so fingers crossed they accept our offer. I will be back by the end of the week and in the meantime, check out the Garden Variety Postcard (and 1 ATC!) swap. This new swap is sponsored by Alpha Stamps and already very popular with 28 participants as of this morning . . . so sign up soon if you are interested!
