Oh my gosh...I can't believe I won!! Thank you so much, Karla! I can't wait to try out the tutorial. All the tags look awesome--how much fun!

Christine N

Karla, I just realized that I didn't send the money. I'll send it very soon!!! My name is Christine Nay in Boise Idaho.


Karla, you put an incredible amount of work into your swaps. I truly appreciate that you take the time to try and send us back tags similar in style to the ones we made. That's not something I would have expected.
Thanks so much for hosting this ~ I hope you enjoy "playing with" all the tags you recieve.


Karla, You are like the Patron Saint of Tag Books! Thank you so much for all the work you are doing so we can each have our little treasure. Don't think for a minute that it isn't appreciated. Just think of the smiles you are spreading when each of those packages is received and opened!

Susan Reaney

I think you need to have a Silly Doggie tag swap one of these years. Between now and then, you deserve a rest, though another retreat would be lovely.

Kat H

Thank you SO MUCH for doing this in such a caring, creative way! It's so wonderful of you to take the time to create nice tag books for us!


I second all those lovely words Karla.

I wish I lived closer and could take part in your retreats etcet as I just know that they would be my kinda thing!

You're a gem, and I have to add my THANK YOU KARLA to the rest!!!

You crack me up, Karla. "billions on the table" and "I try not to drool on them."
My Mama, Ruth Flowers and I are looking forward to receiving our tag books put together with love and care.
I have said before "Karla's Cottage" was our first blog we ever saw and you do not disappoint. We say your name and Sugarwings like you are our family. lol And we would be proud if you were.

Thank you for all you do.

love the studio tours!!!! wish i could be with you all. tell me where you got the yorkie figurine? i have been looking! thanks for posting = its part of my daily thing inthe a.m.


WOW! You are a busy lady. Each person has a system that works for them. If yours works for you, don't apologize. I haven't participated in one of your swaps yet but I will. I look forward to the swap theme you come up with next. Until then, relax.

WOW Karla, Now that's my idea of one organized mess!!! You go girl!!! ~ I too would have sooooo much fun creatively putting all of those wonderful gems together in their very own special groupings. Note to self ….start following Karla's blog more closely so next time she hosts a gorgeous swap I'm sure to get in on all of the fun!!!
I hope you have a great day Karla,
Mrs. Tricia k.


When I heard you had 100 participants, my heart went out to you. I cannot imagine coordinating such an event, but having swapped with you before, I know you put your heart and soul into everything you do. This little tag book will be amazing and I am so excited to get mine. Please know how much we all be thrilled when we receive our package from you and how much we appreciate all you are doing to make this possible.

Nancy Stone

Karla, I can't wait to see my book. You take such care in putting them together. Thank you for all the time you spend on the swap.


Hi Karla,
I so appreciate all the time and heart you put into this. I can't wait to see this book!


Karla, it just looks like so much fun! A ton of work, yes, but the volume makes it even more fun! I would love to host a tag swap Karla-style!


I hope it is not too late to send tags in. I thought we had until the 28th?? Would love to win one of your classes so please add my name.

Terri Gordon

Hi Karla, Thanks so much for sharing, what a huge job. I just want to thank you so much for hosting this swap. Everyone's tags are beautiful. This tag book is going to be such a treasure. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Terri


Oh gosh Karla, I wish I were nearby to lend you a hand. What a huge job. It does look like so much fun though. I's love to see all the tags in person.

Thank you for all that you are doing. Your hosting of this swap has encouraged me so much. You make the world a nicer place with the things that you take the time to share and do.


This was so interesting! You're right -- doing them a dozen or so at a time makes it that much more fun, doesn't it? Everything is looking wonderful! I hope you're enjoying it as much as it sounds like you are.

Donna Reinhart

What a job, a labor of love.
Thanks for doing it!


that spoon is so stickin cute! Does the lady that made it have a blog?


Yes I do have a blog, but I haven't posted about my spoons on it yet. I'm just getting started and getting the hang of blogging. www.lovelinest.org.
Thank you so much btw!

Karla - Thank you so much for the time and effort you're putting into this swap. I'm sure we will be able to feel the love, when we finally receive and get to open our packages! The wait is torture, but I know it's going to be SO worth it! I'm glad you're getting some goodies for yourself, and I hope you enjoy them and feel the love right back! Also, speaking of my blog, I mentioned you in my "Where Bloggers Create" post, if you get a chance, go check it out!

Stephanie O.

I love reading this post....it is always so interesting to find out how people approach tasks! And, especially the people, like you, that so many of us admire...


Wowwwwwww! That is an incredible amount of detailed work!! Really, BLESS YOU! You have the patience of a saint. I would shut down inside trying to figure out a system, but you seem to have it pretty darn well together. You're a pro at this sort of thing!

Jackie, Pearland, TX

Wow, that is an incredible project and so much love and work goes into it. I so wish I had known about this sooner because I would have so loved to be a part of this 'tag swap'. I love tags and collect them myself. Most definitely hope to be included the next go-a-round! Fabulous idea.

Karla Nathan

All the tags are so beautiful! Sorry I missed out on this great swap! It's apparent all the time and love you put into your swaps and I know everyone certainly appreciates it! I'll jump in on your giveaway as well!


I enjoy your process details. It certainly should be made into some fun for you, because it surely is a lot of effort. I see a peek of my tags in a pic so I know they will be enjoyed every step of the way. I shall patiently wait for my Karla package.


Thank you Karla not only for hosting these fun swaps but also for all the care and love you put into making each one so very special for the participants. I know when my tag book arrives in the mail it will be such an exciting day and I'm full of anticipation.
Thank you! :)


woooow. you are a brave woman indeed and I salute you ma'am for this massive undertaking. oh so pretty...yeah, I would be bedazzled and glossy eyed for sure. so glad to be a part of it all, can't wait to see what I get!

I come across a sweet treat like this extreme goodie pile from Sharon, and that makes it even more fun.
