This swap is full of very very talented ladies, you won't be disappointed of what you get back.

This is open to everyone including international ladies.....



It is real simple you alter 4 tags and wrap 2 or 3 types of lace 12 to 18 inches each for the international ladies its 30 to 47 cm.......with a small charm, altered pin or button on each. It will be sent to me with return envelope and postage prepaid and I will distribute and mail back 4 different ones to you, that easy....

Martha Gonzalez
14911 SW 36 Terrace
Miami, Florida 33185

Deadline Feb 10, 2011

International ladies please mail package earlier in order for it to get to me on time.


No Flakers please.......

***Because there is 51 ladies participating, I will be distributing 206 tags. I ask that you all include an self-address label or envelope with your package. Also please make sure you add your screen name to the back of tag or indivdually wrapped tag, so that I know at a glance who the tag is from. That way everything will go smoothly. I appreciate all your help ladies.I know I can count on you all.***

***All packages were mailed between 2/15/11 and 2/16/11***

OK, so you wrap 2 types of lace around 4 altered tags with a small charm????

so I send FOUR of those? I'm lost as to why I get SIX back?

ok, that makes sense I thought I was losing it

so do we just pin the lace on the back of the tag for easy removal? Is that ok?

you could put the charm on the pin and then stick it to the lace...that way it holds it in place!

I am probably going to make mine at least 3" wide and probably about anywhere from 4" to 6" high.

Will that work Martica??

anyway.... I am in!

OK, so we can MAKE tags, then? (I have some nice tags on my cricut carts),,,

and that's a good idea about the pin and the charm, Lacey!

Morning all. The really nice thing about not putting up any holiday decorations is that I have nothing to put away now.

I think I'm going to run a few ideas thru my head today and practice on a tag or two and see what I come up with.

So can someone kinda tell me the gist of this swap. the idea is swapping different kinds of lace?? Or is the lace suppose to be permanently attached to the tag.... as well as the charm.. is it suppose to be part of the tag or to take off and use for there own layouts, or works of art they are working on. Will you be picking names so we know who we are doing the tag for or are you just swapping them all yourself Martica? I see the size doesn't matter in this case lol?? but has to have one charm or stickpin... plus at least 1/2 yard... which is... ummmm how many cm's... 1 yard is 3 feet right??? No 1 meter is 3 feet?? pfff I dunno I keep getting those confused
still.
I'll have to check the due date to see if its gives me enough time. I have not fully decided.. but leaning towards no as I'm not a very good tag maker and don't want anyone to get stuck with something that may not be as good as the rest... I made my very first sorta paper bag album for my daughter for xmas. Took forever between my health problems but I got it sort of finished.. If I had more time I would of did a few more little touches but for my first album I thought it turned out OK... Of course like I told Martica.. hers puts mine to shame.. I like the paperbag album and the tags though, are not as creative as Marticas work.. nor most everyones work either.
ANYWAY... once I know the ins and outs of this swap I will let you know for sure.. yes or no..
Thanks for the help

I'll have a firm answer by end of week, but I LOVE seeing all my old friends here and I hope this new Year is just much more blessed than the previous.

This swap is to make beautiful tags and add lace and charm,pin or button in order for someone to use in their projects. The tag should be beautiful so that it can be displayed. It will swapped by me. That is why everyone is invited.....
