    I’m a day behind in making tags, but have tomorrow off and (fingers crossed) will be able to finish. I am enjoying participating tremendously! I love seeing what your designers come up with and challenging myself to create a new tag. I keep digging through my supplies to find just the right stamp. I work in a grocery store bakery and find myself designing tags in my head to the Christmas song playing over the loudspeaker 😂
